What has happened to Phoenix Hub Gear Repairs?

They have had a wheel of mine for well over a year and are not responding to phone calls or emails.

I fear that something must have happened, but any information would be useful - if only to recover my wheel!

Re: New cycling/cycle touring eMagazine

The initial intention is to publish three or four 'Readers' a year, plus some other related titles that hopefully will be of interest to the same readership.

If you are interested in contributing, do get in touch via the website - www.bicyclereader.com.

Re: Déjà vu? Encouraging cycling...

I phoned up the University of Lancaster's press office and asked them where I could find it. I don't know why search engines are not picking it up.

The actual report is here:

I think that the report from Leeds university about what cycling might be like in 2030 has not yet published.

Re: Pedal repairs by post

I am not unsympathetic to the harsh economic realities of running a bike shop. Having now repaired the pedal, I think that someone who knew what they were doing could have finished the job in 15 minutes – assuming that they had the bearing. The bearings, I discovered, are not in the least bit rare o...

Re: Pedal repairs by post

Brilliant, thank you all. I have now taken both pedals apart. The bearing on the right pedal has disintegrated. Hopefully a new one won't be too hard to find and I will be up and running again soon. Really touched that so many of you have given this thought and proffered help. My local bike shop adv...

Re: Pedal repairs by post

Sorry, no threads are stripped, that I can see, but the pedal has fallen off the axel. I can't tell if anything is missing. I am pretty sure that the bearings are fixed, but whether they are there, or not, I can't tell.

Pedal repairs by post

I have a nice pair of Ritchey spd pedals, with titanium axels that are now around 15 years old. Yesterday one of them stripped out and the pedal detached itself from the axel. I would prefer to get them fixed, than replace them. Does anyone offer this kind of service? All help much appreciated.

Cycle storeage

I am working on an article for an international cycling magazine about cycle storeage. I am mainly interested in innovatative solutions in new housing, but will also include something on retro-fit solutions (such as Bike Vault and the Trimtals bike store). Any pointers would be really helpful. I wil...
