Re: Carrera V brake screw in posts

I have a Vernier gauge, will the internal width give me a clue as to the thread? :?
(I am far more comfortable with feet and inches if I am honest. I know I am showing my Luddite tendencies here) :oops:

Re: Carerra Removeable V Brake Post: Size

Thanks for the update. Alloy frames are new territory for me, have sourced this frame with a view to using all of the bits off a Claud Butler Hybrid with a cracked head ( for no good reason ! ) for a friend. Problem is I don't have any screw in posts at all. The Claud Ines are riveted. They look lik...

Re: Trike v low step through battery cycle

With the greatest of respect, I don't know your experience , or current issues, Trikes aren't as easy to ride as some people think. If you are thinking along Trike lines it might pay you to try one first. They follow the camber if the road into the gutter and over the kerb / into the Ditch/ bushes i...

I was an impoverished schoolboy at the time so could only dream of owning a Poyner. Most of the blokes in my club (Stourbridge CC) had Poyners. Think the shop was on Dudley R...

Re: Cantilever brakes - excessive pad wear

What Brucey said. I periodically check my blocks and dig out the stray bits of metal/ stones that get embedded . Particularly if the pads have grooves, surprising how much detritus can gather there. And it might be worth checking your rim, particularly at the joint. I have on more than one occasion ...
