Re: My Touring / Expedition Bike Conversion - Dawes Sardar - VIDEO

Very interesting build and video and I have the same bike which I have owned for around ten years but is currently completely dismantled whilst I consider what to do with it. Really fancy fitting discs but have not found any suitable and would be interested if anyone else has converted to discs what...

Re: Four War Tour

Just read your trip report on another forum and it is probably the best, most in-depth and informative trip report I have read. I recognise many of the places as my wife and I went on a four day coach trip over armistice weekend to the various war cemeteries, museums and Menin Gate which we visited ...

Re: My Le Jog Video 17 July 2018 14 Days - Cicerone

Great achievement and brilliant video of your trip which has saved me from having to watch/suffer Strictly Come Dancing. Would really like to to do the route before I get much older and just wondered if you pre booked your accommodation or found it on the day?

Cheers

Re: Decide a Winner for the Prudential 100

It wasn't a race as there were too many other cyclists and hold ups to ride too fast and my time was faster than both of you. :D

Re: 2x10 chain ring wear

I've got exactly the same chainset and mines the same as well and probably only covered around 1000 miles.

Re: Lon Las Cymru

Look forward to the photos as well as it's a ride I would like to do but would probably start from near Caernarfon as at the moment we have a static caravan near Llanberis. Finish for me would be Chepstow as my sister lives in Lydney, 10 miles north.

Re: Titanium Bikes

Very nice bike, I'm also a Van Nicholas owner after purchasing a secondhand one last August and I am very pleased with it as most of my fellow club members ride these plastic bikes!

Re: What Type of Tyres for LLC

Might be a few of us riding the route this year. I will be riding my Specialised Tricross shod with 32mm Gatorhardshell tyres and I'm hoping to cycle from Stoke around the North Wales coast to my static caravan (unless I've sold it before) near Caernarfon which is around 115 miles from home. Then cy...

Re: My New KOGA WorldTraveller Signature has arrived (Picture) :)

Pleased its all getting sorted and I know something you could have done without but at least it gives you an excuse to see your daughters and loved ones at this time of year and you must be looking forward to continuing your journey next year. Its just a pity you had to bring the bike back to the UK...
