Exustar Stelvio SP705 black leather shoes - 44 UK 9 1/2

I've had these a while and although I have worn them they were just a smidge too tight. By the time I decided that they weren't going to give, it was too late to return them. They are in excellent condition and boxed with cleats and blanking plates. A stylish pair of shoes that don't look overtly li...

Clobber for the larger cyclist - cycling tops

I'm still clearing stuff out and can't really recall how I came to own so many tops. All are to suit manly blokes with a chest of around 46-48 inches - they fit me anyway. Some are unworn, all have been washed and are in excellent condition from a pet and smoke free home - I think that's how you hav...

Re: Collectable and rare cycling books - More added

But that would mean more car-miles, Jim :? I think a motorbike makes far more sense really :D

On a more pertinent note, Kuklos is now reserved for Dave. Thanks

Re: 1951 Sheffield Langsett 25 inch frame and lovely with it

It needs somebody who'll gimme the brass for it, pwa :D I can always pre-scuff it for you if it would ease your anguish. It has to go and Im open to offers - Id even be prepared to sell all the components in one lot and keep the frame for later if necessary. That way it wouldnt feel like breaking it...

Re: 1909 Rover Popular - 26 inch frame

Thanks, chaps. Ill give your suggestion some thought, Jim. Ive let my local vintage bike club know about it before I contact the VCC. I really dont want to get involved with ebay with this bike, though I could probably get more for it :?

Re: 1909 Rover Popular - 26 inch frame

You could argue that many millions of copies are out there already - folk just don't know it :D
Riding the real thing is a bit special though.

Some of you may recall me rebuilding this bike several years ago https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=61304&hilit=langsett+sheffield#p521578 It doesn't get anything like the use it should nowadays, I'm sad to say, so I've decided that it can go to someone who wants to show it off...

Re: Camping lantern strobe problem

Daft question, but are the batteries running down? I only suggest it as I have two lanterns (different makes/sizes) which when turned off still have a tiny but immensley irritating green flashing light near the button - presumably so the hard of understanding can find it in the dark having forgotten...

Ah, my mistake. When I looked for some I couldnt find any 38s at that price here. Shame as I regularly use SJS :?
