Re: Brian Rourke 53cm

I’m not exactly in a hurry to sell to be honest, though I may put it up on eBay at some point.
I was hoping for some interest here but appreciate most will probably be interested in touring bikes.
It's a lovely bike and will make someone who appreciates bikes such as this, a very happy owner one day.

Re: Can't read pm.

Thanks Graham.
The odd thing is after I manually deleted all of my pm's the message I wanted to read was still on hold.
I made the change you mentioned in your post and it's fine now...odd that.

Cheers

Re: Brian Rourke 53cm

It would be a terrible shame for that to be relegated to winter duties, not least because it's not equipped for it in any way. I'm sure if you'd posted querying the value in 'does anybody know' you would have gotten good advice. Since it's already for sale Iwon't but the frame and forks new must've...

That seems pretty poorly phrased. Maybe you meant could you please tell me what the frame material is?

It has got a reynolds sticker on it btw...

I have edited my post above for clarity.

Re: Brian Rourke 53cm

I’m not sure if Brian Rourke ever built aluminium frames but anyway, this is a tig welded Reynolds 653 frame.
I take your point about listing the components, I just assumed most cyclists would be able to see what they were.

Brian Rourke 53cm

Just putting out some feelers here to see if there would be any interest in my 53cm Brian Rourk if I offered it for sale. There are one or two very minor usage marks that have been touched up but nothing horrible, the chrome is immaculate. I realise many would LIKE to own it but don’t really know ho...

Re: Tamar Bridge

But this is the internet and you don't trust anything you read on the internet. Trust me please. I tell no lies. The bridge is open to cyclists and pedestrians and has been since prior to 1st April as I used it. Pedestrians were on there too. Not sure when specifically it opened, but it is now. It ...

Re: Tamar Bridge

I can assure you the the bridge is open to cyclists. Always has been, always will be. As for the bridge strengthening these past few months, they were using a few mini-busses to transport pedestrians, mobility scooters and cyclists as the southern side of the bridge where the shared use path was wa...

Re: BLACKBURN bar-end multi-mirror

I have a barend Cateye and really like it. It can be knocked by my knee but easy to adjust and gives a good enough rear view but still worth a quick over shoulder look before altering road position. I would buy another one. I guess yours is fitted to drop bar which I purchased mine for, but ended u...
