Re: Rack ... How much !!

Personally I can't see the point of it.
You spend ££££'s on a "lightweight carbon bike", then WHY would you put a pannier rack on it so you could carry an extra 18kg(40lb) around.
Kinda defeats the original point of the carbon framed bike.

Your bike your rules, I suppose.

Re: Can the UK follow the Netherlands as a successful utility cycling country? - Student project.

One way of getting motorists more aware of cyclists is making everybody who wants to drive a car HAVE to ride a bike for at least 1 year with training, minimum of 3,000 miles, before being able to apply for a driving licence. This could be done before leaving school. This would also benefit the econ...

Re: Tinkling sound under drive from rear wheel

As Brucey say's,

+ check the freehub ratcheting pawls/springs if it hasn't been used for some time it could be dry/rusty :shock: best to check it out.

Also as you said the sound goes away if you keep a constant pressure on the pedals it points more to the freehub in my mind.
