Re: Start a new road racing team or not?

My son has ridden for a number of UK Pro teams - Merlin, Plowman-Craven, Sigma, Cycle Premier, 23c and Metaltek-Kuota. Some of these were well financed, others run on a shoestring. Teams are always looking for additional sponsors, so I would start off by co-sponsoring an existing team. That way, you...

Re: what bike to buy?

330lbs is 23.5 stone according to my maths. I've never been that heavy , but I have been 21.5 stone, currently 18.5. I've always ridden a road bike, either steel or aluminium. For the last 10 years I've ridden 20 spoke wheels. According to some on here, I wouldn't make it to the end of my road befor...

Re: what bike to buy?

Not just the frame I'm afraid - my wheels have a weight limit of 100kg, this is something else you may need to consider - wheels intended for a touring tandem would be more suitable I should think. Best of luck - Richard My wheels (Fulcrum Racing 7s) have a rider weight limit of 80kg and I weigh 11...

Re: Ten Miles a day - 2018

I'm just about on target so far, 497 miles so far in 49 days. I'm off to the Canary Islands on Wednesday, so hoping to get some warm weather miles in.

Re: The sad loss of Charlie Craig.

Not stop kids doing sport .... Stop kids training like pros .... Let their bodies grow without self (and pushy parent ) instigated stress .... Let their physiology match the stress they exert on their bodies ..... In my experience, kids don't train like Pro's. They just ride their bikes. They don't...

Re: The sad loss of Charlie Craig.

Sounds like it could have been a congenital heart defect inherited from his dad Nick. So you stop all kids doing sport at a young age to protect a few who might have heart defects? The effect of kids not doing sport would be far greater. We already have a childhood obesity crisis. Most of the curren...

Re: Retro Clothing

Another +1 for Tudorsport. I recently bought some York tights. These are pretty much the same as the Gibbsport ones I bought for cycling to work when I started work in 1977. They are not as tight fitting as Lycra or Roubaix tights, so more suitable when walking through an office upon arrival at work...

In the same way that an ordinary saloon is boring when compared to a Sports car. But which would you want for day to day use?

Re: What kind of bike do I need? :)

If you want a new bike, you won't go far wrong with a Decathlon BTwin. This one is £500 - has 27 gears and is reasonably light. I have the same bike but last year's model. https://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-520-road-bike-sora-id_8377757.html They have cheaper models if you don't want to spend that m...

Re: Cycling after bones fracture advice

My wife recently broke her foot (early December). Her experience is similar to Whoof. She was doing a bit on the turbo after about 4 weeks, cycling proper after 6 weeks. Now 10 weeks after the break, she is up to 50 miles. The problem with her has been what footwear to use. She still can't ride in h...

Re: Cycle ways ( in London ) are a waste of Space?

I once caught a London bus from Waterloo to Oxford Street. I could have walked it faster, the bus didn't move at all at one point for 10 minutes, along the Strand. This was around 3.30pm, so not really proper rush hour, but London traffic is so bad, even outside rush hour, that it hardly moves. Bike...

Re: Family cycle carrying vehicles - any ideas?

Ive managed before with a Nissan Micra (the really old square shape), with 2 adults, 2 small kids, 3 bikes and a trailer bike. 3 bikes on the roof, trailer bike in between the 2 kids, wheel forwards. This was for a week's holiday in a cottage, not just a day out. It really depends on how much extra ...
