Re: what's going on with framebuilder steve goff?

He's still alive & building!

I know he's got quite a bit on at the moment and is working through a waiting list - Steve is a great builder - keep onto him and you won't be disappointed when it's finished.

I'm prob going to order another one from him later on in the year.

Re: Does tyre pressure make so much difference

30 years ago I when I was a time trialling racing snake I would have said the narrowest tyre pumped up as hard as possible was best, but now a days old age and rubbish roads its wide tyres and low pressures!

My hands and wrists can certainly tell now if my front tyre is pumped up too much!

Re: Carradice

Hi Colin,

The bagman support will fit on a B17 so long as you have at least 10mm of the parallel part of the saddle rails spare behind your seat post.

For iPhone users go on the compass app and swipe right, this turns your iPhone into a very useful spirit level and inclinometer.

On closer inspection it's actually 8mm! Which is the largest size in my Teng set.

Re: What car would suit?

i have a Citroen C4 Grand Picasso and it's a great bike carrier with really good headroom and a longer load area than the Berlingo, mines a 1.6hdi diesel manual and averages about 50 mpg.

Re: Any recommendations for V-brake blocks (MTB) ?

Disco Brakes http://www.discobrakes.com/ Triple compound 72mm pads £12 for four pairs. Just fitted these to a neighbour's bike with Tektro V brakes and he can now stop on a sixpence (and was scarily easy to lock up both front and rear wheels). Same as what I use, great stopping in the dry or wet.

Re: C&G Finishes - Liverpool

They are still as good as ever.

Just as an aside it can be cheaper to go to them via Steve Goff as he gets all his frames painted there and will probably receive a discount.
