Re: Short drop deralier for 20" wheel trike

I had a long cage on my 20" rear wheel trike, there was about an inch ground clearance at it's closest to the ground. The problem I had was that when it was at its closest to the spokes/wheel in the 34 sprocket, there was about 2 or 3mm clearance between the cage and the tyre. I'd built up the ...

Re: How to combat rust on your forks where the mudguard mounts?

I have a genesis Croix de Fer, which is a great bike, but I don't think that their painting/frame preparation is up to much. I have filiform rust under the paintwork in a few places, and rust bubbling the paint mostly around cable guides, with no scratches or scuffs to allow the rust in, so I assume...

Re: Anyone Wearing Neck Warmers /Buff?

Wore my thin buff on Sunday, It was cold, I got snowed on. Folding them into 3, so I have a 3 layer tube around my neck works best for me, especially the winter one with the fleece. Fleece on the inside sandwiched between the thin material, as I find fleece quite itchy next to the skin. It has to be...

Re: Shifters/Rear Mech Compatibility

integrity necessarily. BTW there is a concern that a long cage mech will get too close to the ground if fitted to a moulton. I had to un dish the wheel to stop a long cage XT mech hitting the 20" wheel and tyre on my trike https://s6.postimg.org/6vxb23awh/IMAG0499.jpg https://s6.postimg.org/8p...

Re: "PAUL'S" thumbies / "KELLY" take-offs for skinflints

Update I tried this setup on my mountain bike, Midge bars , but didn't like it. https://s6.postimg.org/b02v2yzsh/DSC_0029_1.jpg https://s6.postimg.org/q4xaillox/DSC_0073.jpg Tried it on my commuter, but the angles of the Midge bars, shifters and levers hurt my hands. https://s6.postimg.org/samzz0ry9...

Re: Pro-Viz 360 jacket failure

Never had a problem with mine. I've had mine for a few years now, It's a bit boil in the bag, as it isn't breathable. Normally in my area it seems to be drivers mission in life to get as close as possible to cyclists. But when I wear the Provis in the dark It looks like I get given a lot more room b...
