Re: turbo trainer

I don't think so Only thing I can think of is to take a cheap standard turbo trainer to a metalwork fabrications shop and ask them to cut out the necessary material from the 4 legs and weld back together probably with a sleeve / plate over the top to retain strength. Sure they can advise. Cheers Ja...

Re: British Eagle

I had my 1984 *Coventry* Eagle Touristique resprayed a few years ago. Lovely bike. Well worth restoring if the frame isn’t too far gone. Mine has Deore DX hubs with a Hyperglide & Uniglide compatible freehub and I’ve been able to squeeze on an 8-from-9 Hyperglide cassette without respacing the ...

Re: British Eagle

Assuming it is a good fit, you can't go far wrong with one of those. I seem to remember that CJ tested one for Cycle Touring magazine many years ago, he reckoned it was as good or better than its Raleigh,Dawes and Claud Butler rivals. Also, you have that rare beast, a Welsh built bicycle! Thanks fo...
