Hasn't grasped the fact that bicycles are ridden by people either. People!! You just can't control them! ;-)

Re: Are my new Rockshox Reba forks real or fake?

They look like the right decals on the right fork to me. Some forks had serial numbers/bar codes on a sticker rather than stamped in. It's possible the sticker has come off or been removed.

Car parking to access Kennet & Avon near Reading

Hi,all. Can anyone recommend a good parking spot to leave the car somewhere south/west of Reading? Without driving into Reading, I'd like to leave the car, head west on the canal path for 20 or 30 before heading back to the motor.

Re: Philips Bicycle manufacturing - mid 1950's

Nice factory film - thanks. Amazing how things have changed; the workers seem to be wearing their civvy clothes and have no protective clothing. Especially the women in the spray booths with no masks even ~ wonder if they had any extraction in there? Health and Safety would have a field day nowadays...

Re: ... if this RALEIGH any good?

It looks like a mid range bike to me. 1980s at a guess. It has a Reynolds sticker on it (good!), looks like Alesa alloy rims, single pivot Shimano brakes, cotterless alloy chainset, decent looking pedals. Maybe the kind of bike that would have been around £300 in the 80s? Of the kind of quality whic...

Re: Specialized Epic

2013 will be pegged at rrp ~ if you walk into a dealer you may be able to haggle a bit, but there are unlikely to be any discounts on line. Once a bike is "last years", dealers have much more freedom to discount............if they have any left!

Probably a 501, 502 or 503; something along those lines. Try a search on Google images and Flikr :)

Re: Discount at Bike UK

I worked at Bike for four years. Back then the policy was 10% off parts and accessories, but not off bikes ~ I don't imagine that will have changed. They do pride themselves on customer service though, so if you go in with a friendly and reasonable attitude, they may do a "little something &quo...
