Re: Cyclist convicted of speeding

It isn't .... Bournemouth enforces a 10 mph speed limit along parts of the Promenade with Police using hand held cameras Would that apply to pedestrians, i.e. runners as well as cyclists? Not all joggers are Mo Farah's! I seldom see one doing 10mph. Having said that, it's rather mortifying to be pa...

Re: Tour of Britain Stage 2

You should also look at Hardknott pass which is nearby and doable as part of the same ride. Hardnott and Wrynose are about 30 miles from Honister by road. You could include either Newlands and/or Whinlatter which are in the same area. Newlands goes between Buttermere & Stair. Whinlatter is the ...

Re: Shimano 105 compact chainring sizes

cycleruk thanks for the reply. I'm thinking of replacing, the inner its a bit worn and I was wondering whether I could select a smaller size. The front derailler has a 16T difference, I'm not sure whether you could push this out a couple of teeth, but then I guess the changes would be more difficult...

Shimano 105 compact chainring sizes

Hello folks, please forgive ignorance on my part, but a bike mechanic I am not. The Shimano 105 double compact comes with 50-34 chain rings. Are these sizes compulsory, or if replacing worn parts is it possible to select different sizes? If so what restrictions apply? And will any other adjustments ...

Re: Apa Audax Ti

Beetroot, answerting your questions - i have posted replies below each point Magic Mouse, I assume from your response that you've purchased a SPA (or even an APA!) Ti audax. One thing I was unsure of was the Rigida Chrina rims. Sure they're bomb proof, but perhaps a little more than I require as I ...

Why? Could it not be the Cyclists Club? Many people own bicycles but never tour.

Re: Apa Audax Ti

Hi, i wanted a triple and the 105 suited me, i changed the inner ring to a 26, the brake blocks to koolstop and the saddle to spa leather, plus fitted dog dawg to prevent chain derailing off inner.
