Re: Corima and Shamal wheelsets

Hi, it is a freehub type - not a screw on cassette. No dents at all, the wheels have only been used for road time trials, so normal braking surfaces and relatively low miles.

UK Cycling discount at Halfords?

The UK website appears to be pretty clear that the discount at Halfords can be applied to any cycling related items. So I thought I'd try it out, just a couple of bits and bobs. Walked up to the checkout brandishing said goods and my membership card. And got turned down! The discount (they said) was...

Re: Spare Tyre?

Tyre failures are pretty rare, I've never felt the need to carry a spare although I do know people that have the issue (tandem rear, LeJog day 2....).
If you want to carry a spare, I'd just choose a very light foldable that would get you to the nearest town for a proper replacement.

Re: Android tablet and gpx file - navigating

I note that the routes are plotted on a PC using Memory Map - can I ask, is this your PC? Memory Map comes with 5 licences, I use it to plot my routes and use it on an Android tablet and an old Iphone 4 (both by the relevant app) in exactly the way you describe. I've no experience of the other apps,...

Re: Argos Racing Cycles (Bristol)

I had an Argos TT frameset that I bought secondhand. It was an absolute work of art - every aspect of the finish was just lovely.
I sold it on when I stopped TTing but I'd have another frameset from them without question.

Re: Argos bikes

Not a tourer, but I did have a TT frame built by them. It was absolutely gorgeous, really well finished in every respect.
I'd have another frame from there in a heartbeat.

Re: Warmshowers "membership" charges.

To be honest I would feel better paying as I can't really offer to host due to house size, we don't have a spare room. This has been my point of view so far, I'd really like to use this as a visitor but I wouldn't be able to reciprocate. I've never thought it fair to use the offer of places but not...

Re: France - channel to the Med (or vice-versa)

I did exactly this a couple of years ago - flew to Montpellier, dumped the free bike box and cycled up to Ouistreham (Caen). It was my 1st tour outside the UK and was absolutely brilliant. I started off heading east towards Arles, up to Ventoux before turning north west across the Massif Central bit...
