Re: Shoe sizing

In my opinion shoe manufacturers fail to grasp the concept of foot shape*. I feel especially sorry for (fashionable) women who wear shoes that have no realtion to the shape of their feet and end up with squash-up toes. Not a pretty sight. * Not enough room in the toe-box area. ** I have found a bra...

Re: One Time Pass Code?

I think you can choose to get the secure code via E-mail. Surely almost everyone who uses the internet has E-mail - if not, it's pretty easy to set up a webmail account. Which poses the question: How secure is E-mail? I don't know - perhaps it depends on the strength of your password? Email is inde...

Re: Bit of a clear out!

Are the Hope skewers MTB i.e. 135mm & 110mm?

If so, any chance of a photo re- condition?

Thanks

Re: Ortlieb or not; and what size?

It's up to you how much you carry but I'd have thought you could manage with a pair of front rollers, or your existing front panniers if they are a similar size, on the back with the sleeping bag in a dry bag strapped to the rack. It can also help to carry a small packable rucksack that you can use ...

Re: Removing not quite straight Datatag sticker

On the previous system with the microchip for the tube I once received several frame stickers that wouldn't come off the backing paper. Datatag were able to replace those. Only they will be able to tell you what they can do with the current system. Why don't you email or ring Datatag and ask them.

Re: What size bike do I need?

5'10" with a 32" inside leg is quite a short inside leg measurement relative to height. I'd go for the size that means that the seat at the right height is no higher than the bars and then you can sort the reach with the right stem. That's assuming you are not doing any serious racing and ...

Re: Topeak DX Supertourist Rack. Do I really need the disc version?

I fitted the disc version to my MTB last week. The foot extensions allow it to clear seat stay mounted calipers (see below). The non-disc version should be fine on your bike with the caliper on the chainstay. 20190727_142101.jpg According to the Topeak website there is a version of the Super Tourist...

Re: Size 6 EEE width Ladies shoes with recessed cleats

My feet are too wide for most ladies shoes except for a very few specific brands and those do not include cycling brands. I suggest your wife looks at men's cycling shoe ranges to find anything wide enough. Specialized Tahoe's (at least previous year's models) are wide and Northwave have some wider ...

Re: Gangs of youths on national cycle route.....

Part of my commute takes me onto a national cycle route, I use it to avoid the main road which is basically two lanes up a long hill, with drivers so obsessed with racing each other that they'll pass cyclists stupidly close. I've had no problem for around 3 weeks, cycling 4 days, driving on Wednesd...

Re: Handlebar extension - straight up?

I use this for my Garmin Montana. It's relatively small but made out of metal, not plastic, so pretty solid. I guess could be fitted more upright if you wanted, and maybe loosely enough with a smaller Garmin to save your face in the event of an accidenr. https://www.edinburghbicycle.com/xlc-handleba...

Re: Dogs off lead on shared use path

I might play devil's advocate and suggest that, since the OP has admitted to seeing the 4 dogs offlead and knowing that dogs can be unpredictable, he should not have been in the least bit surprised when one ran across his path and should have anticipated it. The above in no way condones the stupidi...
