Re: is there any such thing as tough DIY paint?

I wish I could find out how Dawes painted their frames back in the 80's. Mine is nearly 40 y.o. with only a bit of superficial rust. I vaguely remember Dawes making the paint durability one of their marketing points . . some slogan like "tough-as-nails". Obviously, making such long-lasting...

Re: A pain in the balls of my feet (both)

I feel sorry for you having it in both feet, if it's as bad as how it is in my one foot you must be walking with a lot of pain & difficulty! I'm just playing for sympathy. . . .. It is only at discomfort level such that I'm avoiding further aggravating it by : Stopped running : Reduced cycling ...

Hi Graham, how is it going with your feet pain condition? . . . etc. Thank you for your kind interest. And quite timely too . . . . . . . . Situation no better : possibly slightly worse : I've been taking a low dose of Ibuprofen for about a week now to see if it is somehow beneficial. My sister has...

Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

< New Series Moulton >. Awesome! I seriously would have bought one these, cost or not, after the rides I had, but for the ever-present risk of theft. I rather regret not buying an NS Moulton, back in the early days, when one could be have for a mere £3.5k. Solely, from a financial viewpoint it woul...

Re: Wobbly Bog Brush!

Apologies for that. A slightly mismatched word-replacement formula intended to take the mikey out of the auto-generated T.a.p.a.talk spam message.

Now corrected. . . . ( EDIT - I hope )

Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

I doubt that such an experiment could simulate a shock load => maximal deflection equivalent to a big pothole.

OTOH. Some possibility of damaging the paintwork or even the frame. Don't do it Mick - it ain't worth it.

Re: On-Wheel Electric Conversion Kits

Driving the wheel through the tyre will increase the tyre wear by some unknown - but non-trivial amount. If the pressure between the drive and the tyre is light - I would expect it to suffer from slippage especially when wet. But at least it shouldn't gobble-up the tyres too quickly. If the pressure...
