Re: Touring in Croatia

It is 10 + years since I did similar. We flew to Dubrovnik and headed North through the islands of Sipan, Korcula and finally onto Split. We then headed down the coast and back to Dubrovnik. Very different group, all lads from my Cycling Club. Observations that would help. It is really hot, this cut...

Mudguard Sizing

I have snapped my rear mudguard on my Genesis TDF 20 commuter / touring bike Looking at them online I can't work out the size I need. They tyres are 35mm.....but I measure the rear guard as being 600 mm, obviously this accounts for the curve. So would I need a 28"/700c X 35mm or x 600? I can't ...

Re: Difficulty whilst tightening pedal into crank

Sorted it this morning.

Baby wiped the thread. Screwed in the pedal on the reverse side. Grease and presto.

Thanks for the tips

Difficulty whilst tightening pedal into crank

Swaped pedals tonight and the drive side crank pedal hasn't gone in smooth. It is OK till about the last two turns. Can you reface the thread or is it a sign from the crankset god?

Next question will be how?

Cheers

Re: Touring in Holland

I have a pet hate on forums when a question is asked but someone replies about something slightly different but that is what I am going to do, sorry. I have had 2 family holidays on Zeeland ( a large Island in the Southern Netherlands) I would restrict myself to here. It has everything we think of a...

Rear Dynamo

My Genesis TDF has a B&M Secula Plus tail light...which doesn't work. The headlight does, so I assume the dynamo is fine. I have taken out the connections and reconnected them but still nothing. Any ideas???

Pannier Advice

My Panniers are on the edge of life support so I am buying some new ones. I am hoping you will share your opinions with me as to which are best - 24 mile daily commute - one weekend tour each year. My old ones are Altura Arran and have served 10+ years so I have no complaints. I like that they have ...

Carradice multi-tool lost screw

Disappointed with my multitool. It fell apart in my jersey pocket, only a year old. Upon rescue one small screw was lost. I wrote (email) to them, no offer to replace and no ability (will) to provide the missing screw that would let me fix it. Really like the idea of using local, UK based companies ...
