1930's (?)Trike Frame, frame number on head lug

Trying to help someone identify an old Trike. Starley Fixed Axle, (which I think dates it from 30's or before) relatively conventional frame, the only unique feature seems to be the Frame Number is stamped on the top head lug. I have a Joe Cooke frame (bike) that has the frame number on the head lug...

Re: Roof mounted racks ??? - Best choice

Fair Point, Hadn't considered that . My machines (usually trikes) actually sit on a rack on top of a stripped down trailer. Haven't tried the Proride yet, (and I DO REALISE IT ISN'T OPTIMUM FOR THE TRIKES, I carry bikes too !!!) it was intended to go on the trailer initially but I do have an estate ...

Re: Roof mounted racks ??? - Best choice

I favour San Remo Fittings , front wheel out, on standard roof bars. Nil damage to paint. Have recently acquired Thule pro ride wheel out (off fleabay) to try. One or two folk have mentioned racks not being tight enough. Quite a lot of Fittings you see have plastic handwheel fittings. I always subst...

Re: Westwood Rims I Think. Need Help Identifying

Just to qualify the comment about it being a Westrick rim rather than a Westwood. It shouldn't affect tyre size, the difference is a Westrick will take braking on the inside of the rim (think Rod brakes) And also on the side if the rim ("Convetional" side/centrepulls) Westwood will only ta...

Re: Marginal Gains, the next?

Marcus, Your Drillum comment is old news. Try and find some period shots of Alf Engers, something of a time trial legend in his day. I have never seen one of his bikes but a mate of mind who has reckons that the brakes were only there to satisfy legal requirements, they were so comprehensively drill...

Re: Pedersen (sigh)

I encountered a guy a few years ago who had a Copenhagen Pedersen which he'd turned into a time trial machine, he'd attached the bars just above where the front rim passed through the forks. He rode with his chest right on the top of the Headset , said it was the most comfortable thing he had ridden...

Picking up the cycle route comment, have you seen the publication called 'Crap Cycle Lanes'?

Re: Double brake lever , cable pull

Yakdiver is quite correct about Brakes and Saddle Height. It USED to be wheel size, but Moulton et al put paid to that one, a Moulton with No Brakes was legal under the old legislation. :shock: Looks like the Cyclon in the picture has been set up for someone who has limited or no movement in the lef...
