Re: Advice on Jack Taylor Bikes Please

I would suggest whatever you do, don't get it repainted. It looks good in it's 'lived in ' state. Chainset is almost certainly a later replacement as the wheels possibly are too. A frame like that would have been made to grandfathers requirements most likely, assuming it was his from new. Jack Taylo...

Re: Double ended inner tubes

Might be stating the blindingly obvious, you actually need 2, one on the bike and the spare. Few years ago one if my CTC group punctured and was quite chuffed because he had one if these tubes as a spare until someone pointed out (we thought it unlikely he had bought 2!) if he had a standard tube on...

Re: pink dave yates stolen -please look out

It's the " no questions asked" element with the reward.
It's a Criminal Offence. Mad I know but there you go. Please don't shoot the messenger ,I l summary execution is a suitable reward for stealing bikes .

(And the CTC are technically too) advertising for return 'no questions asked' I know it's bizarre but there you go. Retired Police officer here ( I will not be making any formal repor...

Re: Rain damaged Brooks saddle.

I tend to use Nickwax on my leather saddles, a waterproof treatment for hiking boots, seems to work better than Proofide in my experience.

Re: Rain damaged Brooks saddle.

If Brooks don't 'come good' you can also get leather renovating creams aimed at furniture/ classic car trade. But you shouldn't have to be doing this on a relatively new saddle.

Re: Alesa aero rims

I have a couple of pairs of Alesa rims , some narrower in profile and could be loosely described as Aero section. than others . All take brakes comfortably.

Re: Alesa aero rims

If the rims are pure track rims you probably can't use a rim brake on them (so fixed and hub should be ok)? Don't know this as a fact, merely an observation.Same principle as disc brake specific rims methinks. Might not be strong enough to cope with potholes either though.
