Re: Added memory eTrex 20

There is a vast amount of etrex 20/30 knowledge on the Audax UK forum. If you have been Audaxing and are a member you should be able to access this. If not join u and support them.

Re: Made to measure cycling shoes - anyone?

I have odd shaped feet and use an orthotic in my shoe. Willam Lennon were very helpful in adjusting their shoes for me. They look a little old fashioned in brown, but work well with toe clips. They suit the style of my Pilgrim Audax bike perfectly and are fine to walk in.

Re: Choosing a Hook of Holland tour

Just take the foot ferry south over the river after you arrive and once through the industrial area you are out in to open country in about 20 minutes. After that head south and do the islands - the scenery and the little towns are wonderful. We did a week round there two years ago and booked all th...

Re: Touring saddle

I have a redundant Brooks B17 I will happily sell to you for £45 posted. I have replaced it with a Selle smp, an odd shaped but supremely comfortable saddle. The pro version is Mark Beaumont's saddle of choice for his epic rides down the length of Africa and round the world.

Where are you? - There is a very good carbon frame repairer east of Norwich, in Norfolk. PM me for details if that is any use to you.

Re: Bike Workstands

I got a really good stand for a very reasonable price from Spa Cycles a year or so ago. Have a look on their web site to see what they have.

Great book - "Art" as in the practice of a skill. See The New Collins Compact English Dictionary - or any similar publication.

Re: Ergo /Shimano

!0 speed Campag shifters work very well with 9 speed Shimano Deore mech if you do the cable re route you will find on the Sheldon Brown web site. You just put the cable in the clamp a bit differently - nothing complicated and I can photograph mine if it will help. I found them a bit reluctant to ope...

Re: Your Favourite Saddle

Selle SMP - These may look an odd shape but they are unbelievably comfortable and much more "man friendly" than the Brooks B17 which I have discarded.

Re: Nylon fabric reproofing

Nylon usually relies on a polyurethane coating on the back to give it waterproofing, as it doesn't swell like cotton tent fabric when it gets wet and which seems to take well to spray on or paint on proofing. I have tried wash in without much lasting success on nylon or on anything else for that mat...

Re: What is the best seat shock absorbing strategy?

My wife has a suspension seat pot on her bike and it works very well. Not much bounce when you pedal, so no loss of effort, but takes the sting out of rough roads. seems to me to be just what you want.
