Re: Help choosing tour bike size - Ridgeback Voyage

rehu, i see Ridgeback have given the standover measurement on their web site for the RB voyage 57cm frame as 805mm. Im not going to say its the be all and end all indicator but its pretty significant. Also as you know you have some lateral and vertical movement on the saddle and spacers on the heads...

Re: Help choosing tour bike size - Ridgeback Voyage

This will probably confuse you more but I'm 5ft 9.5 / 5ft 10". I cant remember my inside leg measurement but I'm of normal build. I have a RB Voyage size 56cm year 2011 or 2012. Iv done thousands of miles and everything has been fine. It has always felt as though it could be a tiny bit large bu...

Re: Deliveroo

I think the whole thing about Deiverydoo is that you order a meal from a restaurant, they pick it up and pack it into those big square boxes, put it on their backs and deliver it to you. Maybe the restaurants sign up to the business.They deliver more than pizzas although a dare say they might delive...

Re: Deliveroo

Monday night about 6pm I watched a Deliveroo cyclist go through red lights at the top of Park Street, dodging the traffic coming from his right along Park Row. He then pootled along the right-hand side of Queens Rd, opposite the Wills Building/Museum etc. No lights, dark clothing... What a surprise...

Re: Deliveroo

That place in St Nicholas market only sells components and accessory's but (not sure about this) they may do repairs on another site and Its been there a long time. "Iv bought a couple of things there." There's a big Raleigh shop over at Gardener Haskins, it may seem a bit uncool to some, ...

Re: Deliveroo

Im sure when I glanced in through the door that the Hafords on Union Street it had more makes than their own. I saw Dropouts had left Stokes Croft, my immediate thought was that they'd gone bust due to the immense number of cycling shops in Bristol, over 60 I thought I read somewhere. I cant think w...

Re: Deliveroo

I see Halfords (its no good being snooty ) have opened a super duper bike shop in Union Street and there's a quite flashy cycling shop right in the centre of Broadmead. I cant think of any more but it wouldn't surprise me if there's a "fixie" shop somewhere there. O I think the Halfords al...

Re: Heavy bikes

[quote="Bigdummysteve"]I've just had a bit of a shock, I managed to get hold of a set of scales which Go up to 60lbs and thought I would weigh my surly bigdummy. Now it has a rohloff, front dyno hub and light,rear cargo bags, mudguards etc. Imagine my surprise when the the needle went past...

Re: Heavy bikes

So Bigdummysteve have you gone and re weighed your bike with all its regular parts, not extras like filled up water bottles or stuff in the panniers to see if the 60lbs was accurate.

Re: Heavy bikes

Bigdummysteve, iv just had a look at the photo you've taken of your Bigdummy. You have two water bottles on the forks, one at the front of your panniers and one at the back of the panniers. How far will four bottles of water take you ?....... What do four bottles of water weigh ?

Re: Heavy bikes

I think there is a place for all sorts of bikes, including heavy ones, but it is not true that bike weight does not slow you down. Mick is right (as usual) to say that is not as important as some might say, but it is a factor. If the weight is there for a good reason, it may be unavoidable, but I s...
