Re: Securing stuff to rack top?

I find that the wide Velcro cinch straps I use on the trailers, work as well on the rear rack

They have advantages as the tension is adjustable and that, with the wider spread of the strap stops the pressure on the load

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

So Trump endorses Boris! An endorsement from a man who was "gonna build a big wall" but is now resorting to talking about tariffs and sanctions! Windbag! Senator Bolton, the warmonger man, and extreme rightwinger, says Britain should leave the EU. (Daily Telegraph). And he should stay ove...

Re: Radius Peer Gynt - LWB Recumbent

One of the half dozen available when I started recumbents.

LOved, but could not afford, I also could not afford the cheaper (suspensionless) Dino

Ended up with a second hand Linear

Perr Gynts were the "Rolls Royce" of recumbents at the time.

Re: A phone with accurate GPS recording abilities

Phone GPS isn't always a genuine GPS

True GPS requires an additional chip which enables the use of GPS satellites to pinpoint where you are

Phones often do without that and merely triangulate using cell towers

Both are restricted in accuracy by the signal you receive
