Re: Branch groing across cycle track hit in the dark

Re: Wheel builder recs Oxford/MK/Warwick?

Ross Spiers is the name. I'd thought of Oxford Bike Works and had a look at Ross Spiers website. Little off-put by his 'don't stock or use black spokes' line, though his wheels 36 hole x triple lace sound right. I quite like my black spokes aesthetically :D

Wheel builder recs Oxford/MK/Warwick?

Can anyone recommend a wheel builder in the area Oxford / Bucks / Warwicks? I'm in north Oxfordshire so anywhere around and about. Prefer direct contact to online supply.

Re: Here's a puzzle for you...

ddraver you joined BR ten years ago and have more than 14,000 posts there - yet you only joined this forum two days ago. It appears you only joined this forum to try to counter what I am posting. I find that even more fantastic than the Earth being flat. :shock: I'm just not answering anything else...
