What is this bike worth ?

Hi All ! I've just acquired this lovely 1930's Elswick Vintage Bike that is in good working order. I've always wanted one so I will probably keep hold of it. Some friends have suggested it may be worth a fair bit. A quick search on Ebay comes up with prices all over the place with some as high as £4...

Re: Portable Grease gun with Grease ?

"I don't know why you need a portable grease-gun in the first place, I know a guy who's cycling from London to New Zealand and he's not carrying one... But if you really want to carry one, bear in mind that plastic ones that screw onto a tub of grease are lightweight and convenient, but not all...

Re: Portable Grease gun with Grease ?

Thanks for the replies.

I think the Henwick grease is still looking like the option as its small, cheap and has the small nozzle.

Cheers all !

Portable Grease gun with Grease ?

I'm after some advice as to what portable grease gun to buy . I've seen Fenwicks Assembly Grease that comes in tube with a very good applicator for hard to reach spots. Here's a link to that : http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/fenwicks-assembly-grease/rp-prod149717 I wondered if anyone uses that or...

Manchester Going Dutch

Not sure if this has been posted. (I find the search facility on here to be very poor).

Re: Close-pass prevention - Well I never!!!

I'm not sure why my fellow cyclists are squabbling about this and say it can't enforced. This is a step in the right direction and creates awareness. I've posted and shared this on my FB page. I would suggest others do the same. Remember the public information ads ? Although they were a bit corny th...

Re: CHEAP Arno Straps ?

Thanks for the reminder about the Cam type.

Strange that they come out at around half price compared to Arno straps when they're virtually the same thing.

Cheers !

Re: CHEAP Arno Straps ?

Thanks ibbo68

I've seen them. But they want £3.50 postage on top so £7.25 just for some straps.

The cheapest I can find them is £5.49 all in .

I just think for what they are they're crazy expensive and surprised I can't find a cheap version from China.

The search continues !

Re: Pannier Advice

+1 for Carradice Super C's I've had mine for a few years and a few 1000 mile tours and they have proved to be excellent. I did proof them with Barbour waterproof dressing but i think that was probably not that necassary. I like the way they are breathable so , as someone else pointed out, your cloth...

Re: rear derailleur issue

ensure you have put the chain in correctly. there is a little metal tab between the 2 jockey wheels. If you've put the chain in the wrong side of that tab it will rub. this link may help ( i don't agree with some of his technique when it comes to putting the chain on but the part you need is at 1.03...
