Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

So this election is supposedly all about Brexit. Just remember 4 years ago nobody was bothered about it or had even heard of it .

Diane Abbott has also been keeping a low profile in this campaign. Maybe because her son was charged with spitting at and biting a police officer.

Re: gear ratios for Dawes SG

I think swapping the granny from 26T to 24T is the way to go. Simpler, don't need to touch the cassette or rear derailleur and won't alter any other ratios apart from the ones on the granny ring :)

Re: gear ratios for Dawes SG

I wasn't sure if the RD could cope with 34T and wondering if it was worth changing or not.

gear ratios for Dawes SG

I have a 2011 Dawes SG and the gear ratios are 48-36-26 on the front and 11-32 on the back.
The newer ones are 11-34 on the back. Would mine take a 11-34 cassette without any modifications? Is it worth changing?

Front light with bar bag?

Anyone have a solution to fitting a front light when you use a bar bag? I could use forks but my forks don't really lend themselves to mounting a light, plus I'd be worried about it going in to the spokes if it got a knock etc.

Re: La Velodyssee

I got the bike bus to Bayonne and cycled home fro there. Picked up the velodyssey at Biarritz. Used it as far as almost up to La Rochelle then cut inland up to Dieppe to catch the ferry. The velodyssey is easy cycling, some parts are busy with the locals if in the holiday season. Surfaces generally ...
