Sqr bolts

I've had to drill out the bolts from my sqr block and I can't seem to find any available to replace them.
Has anyone got any ideas as to where I could buy these?
Many thanks

Re: Garmin 705 upload to Strava problems

That's the frustration they do show, it would be great if you could just copy or share the link to strava. Unless there is and I can't see it. If you go into Strava and your account, there is "connect to a Garmin device". Have you checked that it is still working? Yes I've disconnected an...

Do the rides show up still on Connect? That's the frustration they do show, it would be great if you could just copy or share the link to strava. Unless there is and I can't see it. If you go into Strava and your account, there is "connect to a Garmin device". Have you checked that it is ...

I had a 705 and the output was a TCX.


As the upload failed using strava there's a link to resolve the issue it then recommends converting it to a fit file. It's so frustrating as it's only recently started happening.

Garmin 705 upload to Strava problems

I've been using a 705 Edge si ce 2012, I've downloaded maps onto it and used it in Greece, Spain, France plus many other countries. It's given me great service until recently I'm experiencing problems uploading my rides to Strava, I'm doing everything the same as I always have but now it's frequentl...

Itching to do it

I'm itching to do my first short bike tour 3/4 nights over the Easter weekend from Rotterdam, heading towards Ghent, Roubaix and back to Rotterdam.
Is April to early to try my hand ie cold wet etc or should I just go for it.? A good friend of mine has suggested it probably is.

Compact quality bike lock

Does such a thing exist!?
Looking for recommendations, I do have a good quality bike lock which fits in a pannier bag when I'm using them but I'm looking for something that could potentially fit in a jacket/ jersey pocket for rides when I'm not fully laden with panniers on.

Thanks in advance

Re: dont ask a copper

Well done to the Lady for being one up on the scum bag. ‘We don’t have the manpower to look at these sorts of things.’ Disgraceful response from the Police. If it was a million pound theft would the response be the same? ( I think not ) A theft is a theft and the very fact she gave them so much info...

Re: Fixed wheel bike no brake?

Why any cyclist would want to ride a fixed wheel bike without a brake or brakes on the public highway is beyond belief and any sensible reason.

Re: Comfortable touring shoes

Depending on the budget, but I bought a pair of these after a recommendation from this very forum. To say I've been impressed with the comfort from day one would be an understatement. Superb quality, from the very first day I used them they've been so comfortable to ride and walk in, I don't think y...
