Re: Saddle Height - Which Indicator More Reliable

I had a similar thread, about October/Nov last year, my 'established ' seat height was too high. It is now some 18 mm ish Lower than it had been for prob 20 years. Having read this post, I re read my old one, and checked the Le Mond .88 figure, to the dimples, first time I have done so, and it's act...

Re: Hybrid - GT Transeo Comp Vs Claud Butler Exp 2.0

Agree that the Giant city escape looks a better bike, who knows , you might enjoy it so much that you want to use it at weekends for social riding as well, that's when the suspension fork will become a pain.

Re: Losing some weight?

I think really, that unless you are a performance cyclist, its all a bit of a red herring, especially when you have a trusted ol' friend that has been perfectly ok up to now. a bit like leaving the wife , just because she's put a few pounds on. None of use are getting any younger, and we tend to thi...

Re: EXTENDING THESE PAGES

other forums have more than 2 pages tho. Its frustrating to remember something in the section, that now could be of use, and one is sure it was only a few weeks ago, but now can't be traced . Parts section, and complete bike section, are both only 2 pages long.

EXTENDING THESE PAGES

Can the forum chiefs see fit to extend the FOR SALE pages from 2 pages to ..say 6, or even 10. Not everything sells quickly, and if there is a flurry of new postings, things drop off too quickly, and are never to be seen again, and its a hassle relisting stuff all the time. How about it chaps?
