Re: 24" wheels for trike

Cheers Marc and Hoarder, ideally I want disc hubs but I have spoken to ICE & KMX and neither sell hubs. So any suggestions of a supplier. Someone has suggested that a through bolted MTB front wheel hub can be used does anyone have experience of this?

Folding bicycle choice for London commute

Looking to obtain a folding bike to use for commute. Takin main line train into Paddington then using bike to cross London through royal parks.
Any advice on what to look out for and r what to avoid on folding bikes would be useful. Whilst I would love a Brompton the budget is limited.

Re: Cycle path closure (Pill)

The section of the A369 which you have to ride along does have a shared footpath/cycletrack down to the traffic light controlled crossing. However the suggestion of using Church Road and Marsh Lane to cross over the motorway is a much better alternative.

Re: Cycle path closure (Pill)

I believe that the closure is to allow bridge abutment repairs. I would guess that the diversion will take you up into Portbury village and over the motorway footbridge into Sheepway.

Lon Las Cymru on a trike?

Looking at a potential challenge and I like the long distance ride through Wales but does anyone know of any obstructions I might encounter on a trike. I know that the route has some severe climbs but am I likely to be meet with narrow sections which will prohibit progress on an Ice TNT or Adventure?
