Re: Cycling shoes in a wide fitting

James are you sure the problem is caused by the narrowness of the shoe and not the softness of the sole? Try wearing the Shoe off the bike for an extended period. If you get the same pain its the width. Also if this pain is about 30 minutes into a ride try stopping and slackening the laces. The feet...

Other options are to post code the bike either with a punch kit or a UV marker. You then only have to proove who you are. National Identity...

Re: Penalty for 'dooring' a cyclist

Just to put things in perspective Firstly the fine is not the compensation.

Re: roadster: can't release front derailer cable

As per cycleUk but a squirt of WD40 or Plus Gas first. Try warming it as well, boiling water is usually enough to Split steel and Ally but won't damage the frame. If all else fails hacksaw the bit you don't mind losing

Re: Cone adjustement

IT could be the axle is rigid enough on its own. Your just going to have to do trial and error, there is less than an eigth of turn between spot on and loose. One other point check you've put the right number of balls back in .
