Re: Beaujo For PM

My prediction is that May won't go until the route to Brexit is settled, but is unlikely to be in place for the next General Election. Who replaces her depends on what and where we are with the EU. The bookies have Gove as favourite (5/1), Johnson second (11/2) and Rees-Mogg well down the list in 7t...

Re: Dynamos - Hub or Bottle?

It's all been said so I'll just +1 it. I have three and don't notice the weight and drag, I know several people who bought hub dynamo wheels with the intention of swapping Summer/Winter, but none who have bothered once they realise the difference is so small. IMO the only reason to choose a bottle d...

Me to and there may well be a simple solution that no one has come up with yet. It wouldn't surprise me, it's not that I've failed to find one, I've just never felt the need to look.

Re: Merging GPX files

I often download gps files and sometimes they are comprised of small sections which by themselves aren't much use eg French gps routes from the Eurovelo sites I'm just planning a trip to Budapest via Berlin and Prague on cycle.travel in smaller sections, say 3 days at a time. I'd like to see larger...

Re: Secure bicycle storage in Amsterdam

I had a few nights there last year, booked the cheapest hotel I could find which was a couple of miles out, they had a few hire bikes parked inside, just off the lobby, I locked mine there and used one of there's for getting around. I can dig out the details if you're interested.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Since the referendum, Leave supporting MPs have been more dishonest and less consistent than those supporting Remain. Who are you counting as remain MP's? Article 50 was supported 494 to 122 and in the General Election all those from the two main parties were elected on Brexit manifestos. Too littl...

Re: Base Layers ... Much Difference Between Them

Some people are obviously lucky and find stuff with good fit, function and longevity from Aldi or Sports Direct, I'm not one of them. Every time I've bought cheap it hasn't offered good long term value. To counter this, I buy stuff that I think will be good whatever the price and economise by buying...

Re: Angle of drop handlebars - how to set?

:D Still doesn't get round the hub dynamo wiring, though. :D B0C55C47-2346-4B76-8A39-9EF4E9B09199.jpeg Couldn’t be simpler and once or twice I’ve forgotten to unplug before removing the wheel and no harm done. There are IMO neater options, as mentioned upthread https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/dynamos/s...

Re: Angle of drop handlebars - how to set?

For transport - just get a bit of foam pipe lagging or similar and add it either to the top tube or the end of the bar before loading. Or work out a way to easily remove the front wheel, it shouldn't need to be wrestled out of the disc, and if you're reconnecting the lights frequently Schmidt do som...

Re: Angle of drop handlebars - how to set?

For transport - just get a bit of foam pipe lagging or similar and add it either to the top tube or the end of the bar before loading. For position - it'll be a bit of trial and error, or you might be one of those lucky people that find anything comfortable, either way I wouldn't base the position o...

I use gotoes https://gotoes.org/strava/Combine_GPX_TCX_FIT_Files.php For Audax, I always record and save in sections and join afterwards to upload to Strava, it's worked with Garmin Etrex, Touring and 200, plus with a simple logger. Although it's promoted as a utility for Strava,you get a GPX file w...

Which of the options will that be in your poll of doom?
You were very late to it, twice those odds six months ago for no Brexit in 2019.

Re: Jess Varnish ..

The unfair treatment hinges on whether her removal from the elite programme was justified or whether it was retribution for going public on management shortcoming at British Cycling. Sadly that's not been tested. There are quite a few on here who are good with stats .. How do JV's stats look agains...
