Re: Last night I caught thieves breaking into bike sheds of a well known hostel

Well done ! Very brave of you. I had once a guy trying to steal my bike. I went to a supermarket and could see the bike through the window. A junkey looking dude started hovering around my bike. He had a backpack and I bet that he had bolt cutters inside. I have approached him and asked what is goin...

Iphone opencyclemap offline

Dear colleagues:)

I am wondering if anyone knows of a way or a app for iPhone that enables offline opencyclemap for gps navigation?

On android phone, I used to have Lucus app that allowed me to use opencyclemap offline but there is no Locus for iPhone... I really miss this app :(

Re: Trekking handlebars advice pls.

Have you considered raising your steerer? It would seem a lot simpler and get you more upright. I did, but then I am not really using the drops almost at all. On the very odd occasion I use them to cut through strong headwind. I thought that maybe I could rise the angle of the steer and fit a velo ...

Re: Scottish Borders Bus service X62

Looks as if you can only get two bikes on and I would imagine like our X74 Dumfries > Glasgow there are times when substitute buses are on the route.


It would be for me, wife and our 4 year old bike tourist who has a weehoo. Perhaps, the weehoo could go into the language area.

Re: Trekking handlebars advice pls.

If yopu're tempted by butterfly bars I suggest very strongly that you try before you buy - despite the various hand positions I found them to be the work of Satan. How can I try them if they are not fitted on my bike? I am wondering if there is a well established touring butterfly bar something tha...

Trekking handlebars advice pls.

Hello colleagues! I am looking to moving away from drop bards due to discomfort in the back... I want to have a more upright position. Is there any good model of trekking handlebars that one of you could recommend? I have done some research online, but now I feel overwhelmed by the choice available....

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

Glad you are happy with it. Personally I'll stick to my White Spirit - half the price, leaves no residue and has never clogged the jet :D. But maybe my 50-year-old stoves work differently. It is very likely that it is much different. What is the name of the stove you have ? 50 year old sound quite ...

Re: Caledonian cycleway

I did the Caledonian Way (Inverness to Oban part) last year on Schwalbe 26 x 1.75 without any issues. If my memory is correct, along the Loch Lochy, there is a part of cycle route 78 which goes through a forest road that has some rock - nothing to technical. See the link bellow. https://www.geograph...
