Re: Berridale braes

I went up the Brae in 1999. A car/caravan were close behind me on the harpin and it met an Asda artic going tother way. I have no idea what happened but the caravan never overtook me. Maybe they are still there.

Re: Lubricant for S.A. 3 speed hub?

Thanks for that. I was going to put EP Gear Oil in!! Engine oil it is then. My Honda uses 10-30 visc. That should be ok.

Inner tube size.

Slightly confused here. I have a very old 3 speed Emmelle bike which I use several times a week to nip to shops etc. Just fitted new 26 x 1 3/8" tyres and decided to fit new tubes. What size tube do I need please. I have a new 26 x 1.5-2.1 but I think this is mountain bike? Help much appreciated.

End to End merchandise.

Hello. I did E/E in 1999. 969.7 miles in 19 days. Does anyone know if end to end merchandise is still available and if so where from? What has happened to the CTC? Ken.
