Re: Hearing aids and wind noise mufflers

https://www.cat-ears.com/ I’ve used cat ears for years, I have no idea why everyone isnt using them , definite improvement in taming wind roar. Nowhere to fix them for a start. But less wind noise cause by air turbulence passing straps as there aren't any. :D I only wear my helmet when I have to (c...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I’ve tidied it up a bit and given it a basic clean. It’s wearing the wheels from my Viscount Grand Prix now. Looks well used but treated well, good drivetrain upgrade and it’s had the paint touched up in places.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Hi Gang, I be just picked this up. Aerospace Sport. Drivetrain and rear wheel changed but pretty original. Late 70’s? I think it should have Shimano 600 derailleurs...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I think it came up nicely! I’ve put a sealed BB and 50/34 chainset on it for practical reasons. It’s a great ride. Did 40 miles the other day and have done a few commutes in it and it’s excellent.

Re: Cyclists v Tummy fat( Power/weight ratio implications)

Why has no one come to the obvious conclusion? I asked my wife, who is a human biologist and teaches about muscles/fuel etc Her answer (slightly simplified)was that muscles use the fat stored around them when needing to use fuel. I’ve got no fat on my legs but a slight tummy. My legs use fuel all th...

Added ESGE mudguards.it looks all original, has a World Champions 1980 sticker. I rode it 20 miles home from pi...

Re: NCN6 weirdness

Indeed! I wonder if it’s now been changed on the map to avoid the hill out of Killamarsh? I’ll have to go and have a look at some point. I know the NCN6 signposts are still up on “my route” as I used it last week. IMO the map route is one of those compromises to use off road paths but is actually le...

Re: NCN6 weirdness

You turn right out of Rother Valley head down under the railway bridge and back up to the roundabout where you go left up quite a steep hill. At the top of the Hill is the left turn towards Harthill. At Harthill you go left at the roundabout and then right just after the church. (It’s all signposted...

Re: This must be a first

For me, to try SPD-SL as I ride SPD would be expensive. This puts it in the more affordable zone that I’ll actually try them. I don’t suppose they will last as long as “real” cleats but if I’m paying ten times less but only replace twice as often then it’s all good. Can’t see why they would be liabl...

Re: Which Carlton model is this?

Serial number is for a Nottingham made bike in January 1978. Are you in the USA? Looks like it would be an export model based on the Circuit or Stadium model.

Re: Joining the ranks of the Unemployed

Good luck! At the end of the month I too am leaving work. For me it’s to look after my four and two year old. My wife has had a big enough pay rise in her new job to make it financially viable as we can stop paying for childcare! In September I’d be trying to get the four of us there four different ...
