Re: Cracked Vango Tent Poles - suggested repair

My Vango poles have been fine for a lot of years but one of my Outwell poles split first time on testing out in the garden. :( . The shop changed it no bother.
Since a couple more have started splitting but have held up using "gaffa" tape. The tent is about 15 years old as is the Vango.

Re: Shimano chainsets and chainrings

I have noticed that some "crank arms" are not hollow. Impression is given that some chainsets are equivalent to "group" chainsets. One in point is the RS-510 which is an 11 speed road version. https://www.bike-components.de/en/Shimano/FC-RS510-Crankset-p58812/#product-image-3 Loo...

A couple of Wood pigeons playing at "birds & bees" in the trees behind us yesterday.

Re: Team Sky is now Team INEOS

I believe TTs on busy dual carriageways are popular for fast times. officially that's because they have smooth surfaces without junctions the rules specifically prohibit drafting Is it true that sometimes a vehicle follows the competitor regulating overtaking to best advantage? That can happen and ...

Re: Alivio Vs tiagra?

What level is alivio? I'm thinking tiagra? Wanting to pair a long cage mech with tiagra 4600 shifters If you have the shifters then they are just a tiny bit below Deore XT, but quite a bit better than SLX. However the 4600 right shifter will only work with 7900/6700/5700/4600 rear mechs. It won't w...

Re: Tree identification.

Whatever it is, it's not good for the foundations being so close to the house. That has been on my mind for a few years now. Shame to cut it down but it probably has to go. I hate to destroy trees and shrubs. Why it has been over 30 years to blossom for the first time ?? Maybe it knows something I ...

Re: Lezyne GPS

The one common thing that hasn't changed with all the different tests is the USB socket in the Lezyne itself. :?:
If that is faulty then just maybe it can be repaired/replaced.
Even so that may not be the problem just a thought.

Then we can Google it to see it for ourselves. 8)
