Re: Fitting a crate on front / rear rack, how does it affect handling?

The crate would be fixed permanently to the rack, presumably. This is what people normally do with them. As far as I am concerned carrying a rucksack while cycling is very dangerous. it throws you all off balance and covers up your reflective clothing. Get a good saddle bag. It should do the trick....

Name Change

As a member of the Cyclists Touring Club for a good number of years I resent the council's decision to abolish the original name.

Re: identify ctc badge

Don't hold your breath Hercule on getting any acknowledgement from the CTC for your years of membership. I have been a member since 1963, 50 years this month and never had as much as a postcard from them. As for the winged wheel the original CTC logo, as I said before you would not get mercedes benz...

Re: Which piece of cycling equipment had the greatest impact for

After twenty five or thirty miles stop, get the stove lit up, starters a can of soup heated up in the mess tin followed by a kettle of fresh tea then relax for an hour or so. None of these stainless flasks for me my cafe is on the top ...
