Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

It is close to Moel Siabod, you would see it if you looked in the opposite direction. It is over the Afon Cwm Edno, SH 678 523, looking west towards Lliwedd and Yr Aran.

Here is an easier bridge to identify. For an extra point name the cafe with the Virginia creeper.

[quote="Brucey"][ But £600 or £700....? Crayzee money...

I thought that was for the Schlumpf drive, possibly with the Alfine hub. At least that is the way I read it.

Lliwedd is correct, Cnicht is wrong, so it should be easy now.....

Re: Lockdown non-touring quiz

You would need a MTB or your hiking boots to get to this bridge. Clues are on the horizon.

Re: Touring or gravel frame?

If the tracks are really rough and you want to go at a reasonable pace, I would suggest looking at flat barred bikes e.g. Genesis Longitude and MTBs with front suspension and using tyres 2" or more wide.

Re: Best and cheapest way to transport bike from NL to UK

How about going to a bike shop in Amsterdam, there should be plenty :lol: , and asking for a cardboard box that a bike was delivered in? I guess they will either give you one or ask for a nominal fee. Take some wide sticky tape with you. Sorted!

Re: Which front mech?

FWIW I have a similar triple Spa TD2 46-34-24 working very nicely with Campag Centaur 10 sp FD.
Edit: Planet X are selling these for £49.99 at the moment.

Re: Front derailleur reluctant to change up recently

Can you move the FD easily by hand? If yes, tighten the cable. If not, check the top limit screw. If it still doesn't shift there is probably something wrong or stiff in the FD.
