Wheel help

Hi I have a 2012 Trek 7.3fx that I would like to do some touring on but feel the wheel set is not that great. I would like to beef the wheels up to compansate for extra weight plus terrain etc. The current wheels are ok on the road but feel they are bit light for trails any ideas or suggestion with ...

Re: Selfish & Aggressive Fishermen

I do both fish and cycle and have met both types of people that are inconsiderate to others. I know many Anglers pay fortunes for poles well in excess of a £1000 they also have to pay to fish and quite alot in some case. I do however think everyone should be considerate to others what ever sport the...

Re: membership

I have left the CTC after around 12 years and to be honest did not even receive a question as why i was leaving. I was thinking of re-joining but at £41 a year I do not see any great value to me personally and while that might seem a little selfish. I can support other Cycling campaign groups as i s...

Re: membership

I guess with any membership of any organisation you have to look at what you get out of it. I honestly have say very little for my £39 in my view the magazine is not great. I guess the forum is good however thats open to non members so no issue.
If it was members only that might be better ?

Re: membership

I have to say I do not need the insurance I am fortunate to have plenty of cover through work. I do feel its a bit expensive now and for all the years I have been a member the only correspondence from CTC is to send raffle tickets. There is not a local group to me either well around 12 miles away, I...

Re: loss of sight in one eye

Well managed to commute into work today for few hours. 3.5 mile bike ride and short train journey so quite happy about that. As I am not driving at the moment its good to not be in the car.

Re: bike on train

I think to be honest I am going to use a car, i know its not very green but to be honest as I cant guarantee a decent seat and somewhere to store my cycle, I cant be bothered with the hassle on such a long journey. I will still take my bike in the car and to be honest it works out cheaper although I...
