Re: Derby bike shops

Samways ok for me, they honoured the sale price for my daughters pashley even though i didnt get round to going in 'til the sale was over... high street shops just dont compete with internet prices. In Derby i usually use Holts. Not loads of stock but a proper workshop feel, friendly, helpful. Andys...

Re: Manchester to Liverpool by road

Hi, your post took me back, i grew up in the area and remember some of the roads well. I havent got a complete route for you, but you might find some of this useful. The A570 between the A580 (windle) and the M58 (4 lane ends) has a useful, seperate cycle lane. Parallel to this road, a little to the...

Re: iq fly without rear light

Thianks for the advice, i feel better about running it with just the front now I know that lots of other people do! I do normally run it with a rear, but this bike has clip on mudguards and a saddlebag, without a rack, so the 3 obvious places for a rear light wont work.(i dont have a dynamo light th...

iq fly without rear light

My iq fly led front light is great for winter commuting. I want to use it for an overnight audax, but on a different machine without a rear light. The web suggests that this is fine to do, but also that it isnt ideal... (thousands of hours of life as opposed to a hundred thousand...) So does anyone ...

best value battery light

For my commuter i have a wonderful dynamo hub/iq fly set up, but for ice and snow i have schwalbe snow stud tyres on a different bike, so i need another front light, and a battery one would seem more versatile. What is the best value front light on the market? my commute includes lengthy sections of...

Re: winter marathon tyres

i couldnt decide between snow studs and the marathon winters, ended up with the snow studs because theyre cheaper and were more available when i bought them. So far theyve been brilliant!- a few of my findings go against what i'd read about them... schwalbe say they should be ridden at a lower press...
