Re: ...why it's so difficult to find the Cycling UK shop?

Icon, logo, meh. The name and slogan written out isn't what's usually thought of as a logo, is it? Well... the word logo (short for logotype) originally referred specifically to a number of letters cast together in a single piece (from the Greek logos , "word") while an icon is a stylised...

Re: ...why it's so difficult to find the Cycling UK shop?

So ten out of 30? A third guessing the purpose seems quite good to me for such an unpromoted brand! I'm guessing the other 20 said "Isn't that the Rotary Club or something?" Would you like to bet on a third of people guessing that the white-C-on-orange that CUK now uses as a logo (below, ...

Re: Fuji touring bikes and Oxford touting bikes

The Fuji touring bikes are sensible and well-specced for the money; I think the geometry leans towards the 'sports' end of sports-touring by comparison with the Dawes galaxies of this world. IIRC the 'oxford' bikes have frames at least (maybe the whole bike?) made in Taiwan; maybe someone can confi...

It's part of the newly-expanded "Heritage Range" so I think they're probably new. https://shop.cyclinguk.org/cycling-uk-k ... tage-range

Who designed this Lon Las Cymru t-shirt?

LonLasCymru.jpg I gather it's one that Sustrans used to sell, but they no longer stock it and were unable to tell me who the artist was. I'd like to contact him/her about commissioning something in a similar style. Any leads gratefully received. (And yes, I have already googled it to death.) Thanks.

Re: Jobsworth Hubble 600 Front light

Sounds like a tiny battery for a high powered lamp. It's the same battery and similar spec to my old Lezyne light, so it should be OK. I used to get up to 3 hours through judicious switching between low-beam and high-beam depending on conditions. And the advantage of using a 18650 battery is that y...

Re: Front mech not shifting to large ring

I saw something like this the other year. After spending some time comparing it with a near-identical setup on another bike, I realised that on the problem bike, a pin protruding from the inside face of the outer chainring was missing. (It wasn't entirely clear how it had disappeared - possibly wear...

Re: Mix the old concept with new equipment

Can we combine a bicycle with a café, for example, which would mean you could go anywhere you like on one without worrying about getting a cake? On the other hand, it would need to be a café of a certain standard, as I cannot drink instant coffee and must have a cappuccino from one o' them large re...

Re: Faulty pedestrian crossing lights - who to report to?

... I would expect the council to be responsible ... The highway authority is responsible and in unitary authorities the council is the highway authority, but elsewhere, there are variations eg counties and local councils.. London is different again, with TfL having what I'd call strategic responsi...

Re: Removing square taper Shimano BB

Assume you are aware that it has a lefthand thread? ... on the right-hand side of the bike, but a right-hand thread on the left-hand side of the bike. Always start by tackling the one on the left-hand side, as it is slightly more likely to come loose first. If all else fails, invest in this wonderf...

You can try it out for yourself if you like! Spreadsheet and documentation here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... iness-case
