Re: Incontinence underwear

Why not try buying cycle shorts/tights with a very thick padded seat pad. The odd accident would I’m sure be absorbed into the pad. It may work for her, worth a try. Should be ok if you are doing fairly short rides. I can’t think that wearing a Tena pad on a padded cycle pad would be very comfortabl...

The Rory inside rear dropouts are 115cm with 1010cm wheelbase (me...

Frames identification?

Hi, Can anyone help me with 2 frames I have acquired recently. One is a Rory O’Brien track frame, it has 2 sets of 4 digit numbers, one ending in 75, which I assume may be the year of manufacture. It also has a small crown logo at the top of the rear stays, the tubing is either 501 or 531, it’s diff...

Definitely ‘silver’ mudguards, that MF bike will look fabulous and ride like a ‘silver bullet’! Don’t forget to show us all the ‘finished product’ Derek.

All you may have to do is add a rack, what’s not to like! If you plan to go to Kent, it ...
