Re: Threads reappearing as unread

Sometime today, I merged a new topic, by Woodtourer, onto the the voluminous MAIN cycle.travel topic.

Maybe the unread new topic carries over into the result topic ? It looks like that might be your answer.

Re: Jihadi Brides and their Children.

The message from our government is important and on our behalf : . . . . . "If you do stuff like that our society doesn't want you back." "You have facilitated those who would act against us in the most extreme ways." "You have contributed nothing and, if returned, will like...

Re: Recommendations for lycra cycling shorts with THIN padding

Er, yes . . . that is exactly what I have ended up with - except that mine have Endura on the waistband.

Re: Recommendations for lycra cycling shorts with THIN padding

For anyone else suffering from Acute Surfboard Groin Intrusion*, I have to report that I have bought a couple of pairs of Endura Padded Liners and things are going well. I use them in combination with unpadded or thinly padded longs. When the weather gets a bit warmer I hope to buy some unpadded lyc...

Re: Hartside cafe

The (possible?) new owner sent this by email . . . . . . . I’m after a little bit of information regarding the C2C route via Hart side area. I’m struggling to find any sort of information on how many ( roughly ) push bikers and motor bikers do this route every year & also when the peak time is t...

Re: Jihadi Brides and their Children.

"No regrets" ??? Really. If genuinely held, I suspect that there would be a few ( or more ) persons in UK who would like to cause her some discomfort, if she appeared back here. It seems our system will try to protect her from such threats : identity change : safe houses : protection staff...

Re: It's green so I'm going!

I had a worrying moment today whilst using a pelican crossing...... Audible signal not working, so I looked at the traffic lights which were on red. Whilst I was crossing the car on the other side started moving (as I was directly in front of it) and then stopped <snip> You are a very polite person...

A similar situation, for me, discovering the bluebells in Joan's Acre Wood @ Hinton Ampner . . . .

Re: Urethral Trauma Anyone?

I don't recall anyone recounting tales of blood ouzing from unmentionable orifices, on this forum.

As such it is quite a memorable situation ( even for my failing memory ).

I wish you a speedy & complete recovery.

Re: New look Cycling UK clothing ... coming soon.

I try to keep up with the latest trendy kit.

I have a couple of pairs of these shorts - of cutting-edge design . . . and the last ones I purchased. ( circa 2000-ish )
PS. A nice thin pad within.

Labrat's design looks best to me.

Re: shimano cassettes - 7-speed good : 8-speed no so good

SamuelD : thanks for drawing my attention to your 7-speed topic . That is a very good analysis. It was only because I bought the 7-sp & 8-sp cassettes around the same time that I realised that something counter-intuitive was going on. I suspect that I have using 11t-32t cassettes on the 8-speed ...

Re: shimano cassettes - 7-speed good : 8-speed no so good

Thanks for your researches. I'm sorry that I didn't make the critical factor clearer i.e. biggest sprocket must be 32t.

I think I'll just have to live with the 11t ring on the new 8-speed cassette. Although there may be some limited cannibalisation possibilities despite my ruthless uncluttering.

shimano cassettes - 7-speed good : 8-speed not so good

I recently bought a 7-speed cassette with a useful spread 14 - 32 . Even more recently I bought a 8-speed 11 - 32 , gradually realising that the 7-speed had the better spread of gears. I can usefully use a 13 tooth sprocket, but anything starting with 11 or 12 are a wasted opportunity. Looking aroun...
