Non-working helmet action camera 1080P

Anyone got one of these cheap generic cameras that have stopped working ? I need just the cylindrical clamp that goes around the camera. Please email goamapuca AT btopenworld DOT com if you can help. Thanks.

<<sold>> Campag Mirage 9 spd bare shifter. £9 posted

Bought a used bare pair to use the left one for a 10 speed set up, so the right one is spare. Clicks well and the downshift gearwheel and thumbshift edge looks in good nick. There is clamp band but no nut or bolt (can include a greenhouse alloy bolt that fits and those horrible alloy torx nuts that ...

Re: Here is what I will miss the most this summer...

Not quite a summer thing as in India the cycling season is winter, but this is what I'll miss not being able to cycle there this year or for the foreseeable: https://www.flickr.com/photos/184929377 ... 525699103/

Re: Carpal tunnel op recovery time

I have just had surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome and am having the stitches out a week tomorrow. I wonder if anyone here has experience of this and how long it is likely to be before I can expect to get back on my bike (flat bars/ergon grips)? It’s certainly pretty sore at present, but 8 days or ...

Caveat on TER and Regional Express trains

Caveats based my experience on taking my bicycle on trains in Spain and France last summer. In Spain you can take bicycles on Regional Express trains except in some cases (train is full). In the case of the Regional Express train between Salamanca and Valladolid I was informed by the ticket office i...

Re: India - taking bikes on train?

Some tips based on my experiences touring South India as a NRI (non resident Indian citizen): Have a week to acclimatise to the new environment when you reach India. Do some short bicycle rides to get the logic of traffic organisation in India (there is one!) Take a Water To Go bottle (or two) and d...

Re: India - taking bikes on train?

Regarding the route - I hear what you say about the boringness of some of the coastal roads so I'll have another look at the south-eastern section. Accommodation (already booked!) can be altered without charge until a few days before departure. Sadly there is no Google street view in India so I hav...
