Re: Crossing on Red. No One Complains About Pedestrians

Why should anyone complain about pedestrians? Surely they should always have priority. Only insane car centric societies have jaywalking laws! Priority should always be to design road layouts to make people to look out for each other. That's what some new designs are doing now, removing distracting...

Re: Radius Viper

Maybe the middrive was an option. It'll certainly give a huge range.

Re: Dynamos

Whilst the Sturmey hub Dynamo on my wife's Pashley has some resistance, it doesn't appear to change whether or not the light is on. The old bottle Dynamo on my Dutchbike is very draggy but of course only when it's on. As it doesn't get used for any great distances at night I much prefer that trade o...

Re: Folding recumbent-Whats available?

I speak from a long time in the rarefied world of FF motorcycles ... I live round the corner from the venerable Royce Creasey, although I haven't see his yellow creation for ages - he must be getting on a bit now-a-days. RCOHFFM.jpg I remember reading about Quasars in Bike magazine, too and thinkin...

Re: Tapatalk requests tiresome

Decided to search the forum to see if anyone had moaned about the constant screen tapping req'd to view each page on a phone. Wasn't disappointed either & the issue was raised in February?! No-one should agree that this is ok. It isn't ok. A bit poor in fact considering it's now December. Has an...

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

Here's my homebuilt lowracer. It's construction was much inspired by Atomic Zombie by using square tubing. It's front wheel drive with Sturmey Archer hubs. Although a lot of fun, I took most of the enjoyment from the process of building it and spend more time aboard either a Dutchbike or a Fixie. Am...

Re: Better hub brakes (floating trailing shoe?)

Cantis vs V Brakes - couldn't agree more. Love the former...not at all struck on the latter! Anyway, re modifying drum brakes...I've had a play with mine over the last few lunch breaks. You were spot on Brucey - they are Sturmey Archer. However unlike the alloy shelled ones Rob modified, these are a...

Re: dutch style roadster..

The Sovereign has 635 rims. TBH when I tried one it wasn't love at first ride. My wife got a Pashley Britannia (variation on the Princess model) though and that does seem to be a well sorted machine. Mr Fatty - if I were in your boots I'd try for a test ride on a Pashley & some of the equivalent...

dutch style roadster..

+1 on a Dutchbike. I bought mine almost 3 years ago 2nd hand. It weighs a ton but is a fantastic machine & über comfortable. The lack of weight on your wrists due to the riding position keeps your hands warmer in winter too, as the blood supply to your hands isn't restricted. The gearhub is a na...

Gelert Mongoose 2 - a £40 bargain as a solo tent but would be cramped with 2 adults. Location is a lock side on the Trent & Mersey Canal.ImageImage

Re: Better hub brakes (floating trailing shoe?)

I have always supposed that these brakes are SA brakes, just branded Gazelle. 'KB' used to be a SA hub designation BTW. If the shoes are SA shoes, they should be marked up appropriately internally. They could well be - makes more sense I suppose than reinventing the wheel. BTW with a linked brake s...
