Re: 3 speed coaster brake for commuting on a road bike?

A nice, lightweight frame with a 3 speed hub and modern alloy rim is a joy to ride. Fast, reliable, and cheap.

Personally, I didn't get on with a coaster brake on my road bike. But there are some excellent, modern dual-pivot calipers about. It needn't be that expensive to build.

Re: You should know this about Tesco puncture repair kits...

I use old tubes as patches. One knackered tube as dumped by a roadie is enough to fix lots of p*nctures.

Re: inflatable Kayak/canoe

Yes, but inflatables have a lot going for them in terms of storage, and portability, which could be matched to some extent by a folding kayak like a featherlight or folbot, but those are far heavier and more expensive boats. I don't think anyone would claim that an inflatable can match a hardshell ...

Re: what should you look for in a mobile phone

Surely if you keep murdering them, it makes more sense to get a cheaper one?

Mine never last more than six months.

Re: inflatable Kayak/canoe

I am an avid canoeist, in the summer I paddle a couple of hours every day. Proper canoes are so much nicer and more useful. They're safer, they last longer, and they are easier to handle. Plus, once you buy them they never devalue; you'll end up throwing out the inflatable if you ever get interested...

Walking boots for me for touring. You can stop and explore in them.

Re: Heavy duty straddle wire

How do you mean "heavy duty"? Do you mean the Shimano ones? Or are you talking about hangers, the bit that attaches the brake and straddle cables together?

Re: Old wheels what do you do with them

Wheels with worn-out rims are good to no-one. You'll never use them again, and they could cause an accident. But they can become something else. Cut them out of the hubs (don't bother with keeping them, either). If they're freewheel hubs, make sure you take the freewheel off FIRST. A good hub can ha...
