Unfortunately England bowed out today. Overall a good game though I must say. Looking forward to the final two games of the world cup.

Re: Total newbee to MTB.....

I just had those Schwalbe tires recommended to me as well, so it seems like a good way to go.

Re: Men's euphemism & saddle issues

http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/fitness/is-your-saddle-harming-you-271533 Along with this, I have heard that rough terrain can worsen all of these effects. I cannot remember what I was listening to that was discussing the sturdy, but they found that mountain bikers had the most severe of these issues.

Re: BL******* extendable dog leads

I don't know, but I'd sign one to ban them in any public place. I bet they have caused many falls of elderly people, as well as cyclists. We know some cyclists have been killed by them. How did someone die? And you say "cyclists" emphasis on the "s". How common is this? Several ...

Re: Chinese Bike sharing scheme

The only issue I see for anything without a docking procedure in other countries is a lack of courtesy. Just spilling the bikes on a curb. Not making sure that they are out of the way when they are left. Maybe I am just a pessimist. I would hope that these things work, just because it would mean tha...

Re: Morale buster

Should be good for morale. Keep up all the hard work, and when you are 60, pass a guy your current age... But this time, without an electric bike! Really you should be proud that the work you are putting in now might make you more physically able in your later years. (Unlike those aforementioned sex...

Re: France proposed bicycle helmet law for kids under 12

No - I can solve even more problems. Ban children. In less than a century I'll completely eliminate human mortality... Very interesting proposal. It would suck for anyone that has to die in a world where everything has fallen apart due to a lack of providers. And where no one could retire. And ther...

Re: France proposed bicycle helmet law for kids under 12

Does the child have to pay the fine from it's :? pocket money? And buy a helmet? In the US, the fines for anything a child does are the responsibility of the parents/guardians. I would assume it would be the same in France. The whole thing is just to make sure that parents are raising their kids ri...
