Re: drop foot

Might be worth trying a cleat on the "weak" foot to keep it where you want it, and push off with the "strong" foot. Shimano do a pedal that is cleated one side and plain the other. Others may as well? But I'd agree , physio first and perhaps a static bike to rebuild your techniqu...

Re: tub rims for a track bike

How many holes in the hubs. Plus one for what last poster said. Real dedicated Track Sprints are quite fragile and you wouldn't want to put a brake on one. (In fact a pukka Track Sprint probably wouldn't take a brake block, be too slim) And a decent pot hole would probably finish them for good. Road...

Re: Trike conversion kit

Not sure if Roman Road are still trading. I know the principal Derek Shackels sadly died (Last Year I think) and he was talking of selling up his stock before then. Other than that ,Trykit do a Rolls Royce Job but the price is commensurate. (But fair for the Product in my opinion) Quite a lot of the...
