Re: It's green so I'm going!

When some people will fight and even sometimes kill each other because they support different football teams you cant expect much from some members of the human race,

Re: Walking dogs in the dark

I see a lot of this too, people not picking up the poo in the dark because they can get away with it. No excuse, most now carry a phone that is also a torch. Just got back from my dog walking me, I always pick up the poo especially in the winter because then I can warm my hands on the bag.

Re: Body Clock

Reading this at 6.30am I am glad I am not the only one who gets up with the lark. With me it all started with being a carer, So tired at night I started going to bed at nine and up at four or five in the morning but I actually prefer it, I think?

My SA hub

With the help of Bruce I have been stripping my 3 speed hub, it had lost first gear (its from my new used dirt cheap bike) the reason it had lost first gear was the pawls where stuck, in the photo you can see the corrosion on the pin, hardly anything at all but enough to stop them working. The other...

Re: SA hub

After my ride in the cold this morning (lots of ice still about) I took the hub apart. the low drive pawls are stuck so nothing major. I bet if the hub was an older one that was oil lubed this may not have happened? One other point to mention who ever had the bike before had put one of the anti turn...

Re: SA hub

That's the one, exact model, When i first seen it I was thinking nineties but older is better, its hardly been used, just neglected by the look of the chain. I have put oil in the hub and by the state of the brown rusty looking muck coming out it needs a strip down, well a total strip of the bike is...

Re: SA hub

So the hub dating is not as simple as it seems. The bike I have is a re badge Raleigh, BSA metro. Its quite 'modern' to me with its square tapper BB which is why I bought it so I can change the front ring from one in my junk box, this will then suit the hills where I live better (my back door is ten...
