Re: Moving Up The Left On The Inside

Hi, If there was no cycle lane she shouldn't have gone down the inside. I never do it, simply to avoid that sort of situation. If there was a cycle lane the discussion is a different one. So how do you get to advance start boxes, then? All the ones I have seen are fed with cycle lanes or cycle paths...

Moving Up The Left On The Inside

Hi, Simply bananas, I would rather walk than attempt to move up the inside, I use extreme caution when using cycle lanes next to kerb, preferring to wait in line, while not illegal, if it ends badly and your bad judgement you should face the costs, as she has. No mention "DO NOT DO IT!" th...

Re: Transgender woman wins cycling championship

Hi, If adults struggle to grasp the subject, then encouraging very young mentally undeveloped children to recognise / come out is fraught with dangers. As has been pointed out by Landsurfer "U" turns (I am mentioning what you have said not criticising anyone for events), education OK but e...

Re: 1.5m rucksack covers

Hi,
A good idea it might work.
We need something anyway.
I think the way forward would be a code of practice we are not going to get a new law any time soon.
I even thought of a T-shirt with something like 360° angry car Cam on Board.

Hi, Are use cheap imports 50 for teakwood. Just remember which side goes on to the tube. Most reliable method I found is to clean the tube with Abrasive paper.

Re: Puncture proof bike tyres. Recommendations please.

Hi,
Puncture proof tyres are a waste of space!

Thorns and glass even nails will go straight through.

Tyr to keep out of gutter near to kerb, this is where all the rubbish lurks.

Good luck.

Re: Hi new member (fork problem)

Hi,
Why do you think you’re losing wattage?
I am inclined to say that you are Blaming the Forks for Less than perfect cycling style.

I agree that most suspension forks are a bit cheap and nasty, if your folks are bottoming out try the mods listed above, Just watch for any change in handling.

Re: Chris Hoy speaks out

Hi,
BBC said something to that on the morning news text .....sometime back.....later edited.

As soon as I spotted it and posted on here.

Cyclist died...............I think it was a veteran 80 year old world TT rider IIRC.
Scrap the bbc......If I was PM :)
