Re: Bike roof racks

I must surely have the worst of all worlds in my current company car which is the car of my choice, Hyundai Ioniq plug in hybrid: With plug in hybrids, it is strongly not recommended to add a tow bar and towing electrics to the car due to the car traction system, petrol engine and electric motor.

Re: Old mesh seat

OH you want the whole seat, not just the mesh.
I only have the mesh sorry!

You'd probably be better off contacting a wheel chair company and asking their opinion no the sagging seat.

Re: Old mesh seat

Not sure if I understand you correctly.
Do you want to fit it to a wheelchair OR just use the straps?
The reason I ask is I've got an old ICE mesh but it's in too good a condition to cut up for straps that you can buy the bits(webbing & buckles) and make them up yourself.

Re: Cycling for Disabled People.

You are very unlikely to fall out, unless you did something totally daft like riding up a steep bank, side on, whilst leaning downwards! I've done that on my ICE Qnt. :oops: TWICE! :roll: Both times I was completely unhurt and no damage to the trike either. I have nerve damage caused by a neck/spin...

The (not so) Humble Bicycle

Saw this on telly years ago.

A right blast from the past.

Got some interesting bits about frame sizing/fit and Moulton's.

Re: Rear mech compatible ? Impossible to adjust right

10/11/12 by 1 might be less complicated and "maybe" even lighter than traditional double or triple's BUT the chain-line leaves a lot to be desired in either 1st or 10/11/12th. If you put it in either and pedal backwards it... A, Sounds LOUD and horrible and B, The chain jumps to another sp...

Re: Can I lace wheel rim ignoring the spoke hole offset?

Sounds like Rohloff need to sort out their flanges.
Not good publicity for a premium product commanding premium prices.
It's one of the main reasons I still use "cassette & derailleur" on my trike.

Re: Front jersey pockets

The worst thing I've found about rear pockets on cycling gear is now they all seem to have zips instead of a flap & elasticated top, even shorts/trousers!
+ve better security
-ve access whilst riding/ digs in your back (recumbent user) and can damage the seat!

Re: Moulton front suspension arms

Nice bit of work there Mick.
Also nice to see you protecting the table from the tool box. :wink:

P.S.
If you're worried about the grease effecting the plastic you could use "Silicone grease".

Re: Normandy hubs; maillard in many guises....

The slotted ones look like the "Campagnolo record Mk1's" I used to have, sans the oil port in the middle.

Brought back some fond memories.
Thanks Brucey. :D
