Re: Effort or Speed?

Why are eBikes speed limited in assistance and not effort limited in assistance? If they were effort limited, I could see their appeal. As they are, they take away the joy of climbing hills for me at least. It seems to me that eBikes are speed limited for legislative reasons, and because it's an ea...

Re: Moulton TSR 30/A11

I'd be interested in the front and rear racks and touring bag if nobody else wants them. Depending on the configuration you sell the bike in I'd also be interested in the original front and rear wheels, shifters, rear mech, suitcase and soft carry bags. I'm just up the road in Glasgow so could coll...

Re: Roof mounted racks ??? - Best choice

Until very recently, I've always made every effort to carry the bike inside the car, both for the health of the bike, and for fuel economy. However, it does tend to result in done minor damage to the car trim over time. I've recently bought a Rockbros suction cup roof rack, a cheaper version of the ...

Re: Moulton TSR 30/A11

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. If nobody bites, I might consider just selling off those parts and fitting a narrow/wide chainset to finish off the conversion. The combination of Alfine gearing and Moulton suspension makes for a wonderfully smooth, silent ride.

Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

I replaced my bushings a couple of years ago with the factory ones, and didn't think to examine the housing in any detail. But, I'm now wondering, what's to stop one from fitting longer bushings, so as to increase the bearing surface and hence reduce wear? Are longer bushings available, and if so, a...

Moulton TSR 30

I have a Moulton TSR for sale, with lots of extras. I'd prefer to sell it as a job lot, but if there's no interest I'm happy to sell the bike and extras separately. The bike is in north Cumbria, but I'm happy to discuss shipping or delivering. The bike is a 2011 TSR-30 with Campagnolo Centaur 3x10 g...

Re: Kilometres or miles

Most human beings can just about cope with differences of speed of up to 20mph. Closing speeds much higher than that do not allow enough reaction time for the average not-so-very-attentive driver to slow sufficiently, or take avoiding action. Where does this come from? The number of times I've been...

Re: Kilometres or miles

I've recently switched from miles to kilometers for cycling. The main reason was that I enjoy watching televised competitive cycling, where all the speeds and distances are reported in kilometers. I find that it spoils the enjoyment if I'm constantly doing mental arithmetic rather than simply being ...

Re: Sorry, another fitting tubeless question

To expand on Marcus's comprehensive post, I'd also suggest that once the sealant is in you should make sure you also spin the wheels in an almost horizontal plane in order to get sealant on the sidewalls and beads. Good luck, I've been happy with the switch to tubeless. Not been hugely impressed wit...
