Re: Camera recommendations

Good wee camera that -- you can see the reg of the car well -- does it come as a kit ie rear and forward cameras? And is there any image stablization. The cameras are sold separately (both produced by the same manufacturer- Cycliq) there is a link to their website in one of my earlier posts above. ...

Re: Camera recommendations

I use a Fly 12 CE - unfortunately they are not cheap. As an added bonus onboard light is very effective (at least for daytime use). Typically I am only out for circa 4 hours, but battery has barely dropped below 50%. https://cycliq.com/bike-cameras/fly12ce/?v=79cba1185463 At the time of posting they...

Re: Oakley Hydrophobic lens cleaner - alternatives ?

Ah yes - this looks promising (ensuring that you get the plastic version NOT glass)
https://www.halfords.com/motoring/screenwash-and-de-icer/rain-x-plastic-water-repellent-200ml-803228.html
and quite a bit cheaper.

Will source, test and report back in due course.

Oakley Hydrophobic lens cleaner - alternatives ?

Bit of a long shot ... I have some Oakley Jawbreaker Sun glasses which I have found to be entirely satisfactory. Periodically I clean the lenses and re-coat them with a Oakley hydrophobic lens cleaner (maintains their water repellancy). https://www.wiggle.co.uk/oakley-nanoclear-lens-cleaner-hydropho...

Re: Chain rivet extractor recommendations (light and portable)

Thanks to all for the helpful suggestions/observations.

It was a "toss up" between the Top Peak and Park - I eventually plumped for the Park CT-5

Chain rivet extractor recommendations (light and portable)

Could anyone recommend a portable chain rivet extractor suitable for a 10/11 speed chain ? Basically, on the off chance that my chain snaps whilst out, I am looking for an emergency extractor to allow me to use a split link. So I guess I am looking for a compact/light device. Its unlikely to see muc...

As it happens I was reading it the old fashioned way (newsprint!). The paper is now at my mother's - I'll retrieve it and scan the relevant portion of the article when I am next there.

Presumed liability

In the Sunday Times yesterday it was reported in one of the articles that the Government was intending to legislate to bring in a presumed liability rule as regards cyclists v motor vehicles. No mention was made of the same as regards cyclists v pedestrians (which I would also support). Wonder if an...

Re: Junction improvements - Council's obligation to consult ?

Thanks for all the responses - just a follow up to my original post. In posting I was not expecting to change anything, I was more interested to see if the Council followed the documented procedures. In fairness this junction (now that a large housing development has been started with consequential ...

Junction improvements - Council's obligation to consult ?

Bit of a long shot My local Council are shortly to commence major junction improvements (and introduction of traffic lights). Obviously as a cyclist I am keen to explore how I might be affected by such work. In planning such work, can anyone assist me as to the Council's obligations (if any) to cons...

Re: Recommended cycle camera

Those look nice. My bars are a bit full, but I've got 50mm of spacers on the steerer, so loads of room there. It doesn't look like Cycliq do a spacer type mount themselves, but do they use some sort of "universal" mount, that there might be a steerer mount for? If you are short on bar spa...

Re: Punctures on the inner quadrants of the inner tube

Thought I would post a follow up (probably tempting fate by doing so mind!) to say that since adding electrical tape to the mix, my puncture problem has ceased.
Fingers crossed, long may it continue.

Re: Rear camera

Having been successfully using a fly6 CE for the last 18 months (approximately 10 hours a week) I have found it reliable and am disappointed to hear of your experience with two - you refer to the fly 6 so it is not clear whether its an earlier incarnation or the later CE version. I presume its out o...
