Wow, so when my wife and I go walking on quiet country lanes we have to go in single file all the time? The runner might have actually said "coming past" or something similar - it was friendly, not at all aggressive. I was there, you weren't and there was definitely no bell or call from th...
A tale of two passes: My wife and I were taking a Sunday morning walk to South Petherton along a quiet single track road. The road was the typical country lane with tarmac where vehicle tyres had cleared the surface and a muddy/gravelly ridge in the middle. We were therefore walking side by side wit...

I have just called Spa (which I should have done earlier of course) - they claim the steel Tourer will take 40c with guards... I have 38mm tyres with mudguards on my Spa Tourer and I think that is really a smidge too big - I expect clogging up when the roads get really mucky. When I wear these tyre...
Fitting a bottom bracket kit shouldn't be a huge problem if you have crossover drive with square taper cranks the same as the kit you are fitting.

I had a very good experience ordering a Spa Tourer frameset. I ordered on Friday and took delivery lunchtime on the following Tuesday. Shortly after I ordered they checked that I was ordering the correct size for my height (which I was happy with). There was one problem, they sent the wrong colour, ...

I have fitted bottom bracket conversion kits to several cycles. They are not perfect but they do the job and have been largely reliable. They do require "standard" bottom bracket dimensions i.e. 68-73 mm width.
The splitter is for connecting lights which are then controllable from some of the display/controllers. If the connector on the "spare" cable matches the splitter connection, it is for connecting to the lights.

Does anyone have any experience of the steering on Greenspeed tadpole layout trikes? Having obtained a Greenspeed GTV tandem recumbent I found the steering required much more force than my solo ICE recumbent. The ICE uses normal bike style headsets on both swivels while the Greenspeed uses kingpins....
