Bagage on trains

This is mainly an idea of getting my BobYak on the train as a boxed bag. Now the East Coast Website state Please ensure you are familiar with our luggage allowances before travelling: You can bring up to three pieces of luggage – two larger items (90x70x30 cm) and one piece of hand luggage. You will...

Re: caledonian canal

What about the b862 and b852 on the east side? I have done all 3. A82, great glen way and the b852 All have their plus and negative points. The a82 as previous posts have said - fast traffic and a major trunk road from Inverness. To the untrained and non battle hardened cyclist I would say stay away...

Re: Thorn or Koga signature with Rohloff 700c

Re: Roberts v Thorn v Dawes v Surly

I was about to comment until I noticed tithe initial date, but it looks like you are still looking so let me throw my 2 penny worth into the mould. Last year (November 2012) I took delivery of my Koga Signature with rohloff. Now this kit does cost but this is the bike for life situation so I took th...

Re: My cheap new Action Cam

I was looking at the Garmin verb elite. Very beautiful piece of kit, even if a tad expensive. Though I don't think I will buy it as the only use I would have it for is to record any incidents while on the road. However saying that I have made my own. Using my old Nokia n95, a light bulb cardboard bo...

Re: Top Gear on bikes

Just watched the episode what a load of tripe. I am sick and tired of Clarkson making fun of cyclists in this stupid way which no one benefits from. There's no wounded he was boasting about all the space on the road he was getting / that was purely down to the fact a people carrier was trailing them...

Re: Letter from FirstBus

its quite interesting when you read the letter, it states "The cyclist would be invited to sit in the drivers seat (as to understand the world from the drivers point of view) IN A STATIONARY BUS whilst the bus driver cycles passed. now forgive me if I am wrong, your youtube shows you and the bu...

Re: Best way to shed weight (in terms of kit)

Don't take the lock Look after your bike in the day when popping into the shops by one staying with them. You should need them at night. Just tie the tent line around your bike so that the tent falls down if someone where to help themselves. If you are on a budget and need a stove then extra weight ...

Re: BBC Five live

Interesting you raise the ASL BOX as this morning (not the only time though :x ) a car had stopping just over the white lines and into the box. I simply pulled alongside and safely into the front of the car. I looked back with a long stare with that 'tut tut look' that only a parent can give and jus...

Re: Forward facing lights at the rear?

Andrewwoods I think you are right. Problem is where to mount the light. With my question about the bob yak, this can be done (indeed with any trailer) but with no trailer there isn't any room except if you have a pannier rack. However the frame for this will be thin and finding something to clamp on...
