Re: Dented frame repair

Such embellishments are part of the customisation process. Repair the paintwork and admire the new 'feature'.

Re: Best first bike under £1000

Buy a cheap cheap second hand bike. When you've been cycling for a few months you will know better what you are looking for.

Re: B&M Ixon IQ Premium 80lux

If you're having a problem with them, freeflow, then I suggest either it hasn't been fitted correctly or yours is faulty. The way in which the light wobbles even when correctly mounted is unsettling. After the escape which broke the closing latch I bought a second mount from B&M. The latching k...

Re: B&M Ixon IQ Premium 80lux

The mount is an atrocious piece of design. The lamp wobbles mightily on all but the smoothest surfaces. On occasion the lamp takes off if it's own accord. Mine is now held together with zip ties.

Re: Small Pump AND CO2 Inflator Recommendations Please

That's 16.85 inches long Which means it fits in a rack pack quite easily although mine is now permanantly strapped to the bike. Before the above I used to have one of these https://www.wiggle.co.uk/lezyne-pressure-drive-cfh-c02-pump-with-free-cartridge/ but it did have a nasty habit of unscrewing t...

Re: Replacement Disk Brakes

True. But if you need new pads whilst deciding which calipers to use I' d recommend the Kevlar pads.

I got turned off dedicated GPS due to the internal contacts between the battery and electronics in my then Garmin 305 started fatiguing which led to disconnections everytime I went over a bumpy bit of the road, and by being tied into a specific website to upload routes to a Bryton 650(?).
