Re: Dangerous front lights

If they had just one light, would it not have appeared like a motor bike some distance away.

Just read this thread, as I am considering buying a Cannondale with BB30 bottom bracket. Thank you to Brucey for his comment on chain rings, fantastic advice.

Re: High Performance Cars

The technology is available to fit speed limiters which would stop a vehicle exceeding the speed limit. The government could introduce legislation to enforce this.

Swap btwin brakes for Ultegra 6600

I have a BTwin Triban 540, which is all 105 except for the brakes. They are marked Btwin, I think they are actually made by FSA. They work well and I don’t have an issue with them. I have some Shimano Ultegra BR- 6600 brakes which are in good condition. Opinions on whether it would be a worthwhile s...

Re: Price of Chains

I got a kmc 9 speed chain for £8.99 from Merlin cycles. I did add a tyre to the order to get it over the £20.00 mark for free postage. 8 speeds were the same price.

Re: Riding for 24 hours

I would try to add some flexibility to your date for doing this. March can have widely different types of weather. Think this year nearly ideal, think 2018 beast from the East. If the weather is going to be really bad change the date.

Re: Cyclist sues after falling off bike due to dog

I have zero sympathy for the cyclist concerned and some for the dog owner. As a cyclist it is my responsibility to be aware of pedestrians and dogs in parkland and to be aware that dogs do do random things at times. If he was only doing 5mph then the accident would have been trivial, my best guess ...

Re: 10 speed 11-30 cassette

I never look at the number of teeth at the bottom of the cassette just the number at the top. Perhaps that’s because I cycle in the Peak District.

Wet, damp, cold, dark mornings and evenings, frost, snow, sleet, horrible.

Summer is dry, warm, gentle, balmy, long days, wonderful.



Mick, you live in Cornwall, you get a fair bit of rain but frost, sleet and snow must be quite rare.
