Re: UK Tricycle Riding

Hi tatty :D , Thank you for posting those images, especially the contemporary ad shot. I still contend that such a machine was far superior to both of the current offerings to non-dedicated trikies. That KGR should be in production today, indeed some folk who ordered one in 1979 may still be awaitin...

Re: UK Tricycle Riding

Do I smell the whiff of sexist, classification of posters mechanical ability as being too low? :shock: :roll: :wink: . If a reasonable KGR machine was sourced any reasonably capable fettler could match your efforts, the parts are out there. But I do believe that firms such as Pashley & Mission c...

The Porsche 918 Hybrid. little petrol engine, with front and rear electric motors, so four wheel drive, very environmentally friendly??? Not quite, lapped the Nurburgring in 6 minutes 54 seconds, some milk ...

Re: UK Tricycle Riding

Hi trikegirl, I had a conversation a while back with a lady on the management of Pashley. She asked why I had stated that a minor re-design of the Piccolo would help them to make a better product. It was a simple mod, which would address a very weak spot in their design. If you look at the seat-stay...

Re: Towing a car

Hi Peetee, I think that lock-down has taken a serious toll on you :shock: I can say quite emphatically is Taboo, even if pedal-cycles weren't banned you would have trouble getting up to the minimum permitted speed. As existing motor vehicles have towing weight limits in place, including maximum towi...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

Hi there, I find it fascinating that so many supposedly adult people make countless childish point? If common sense is the answer we have serious problems at beating this virus, as "Common" sense is a very "Un-Common" commodity! MM

Re: UK Tricycle Riding

Hello the , If I read it right Trikegirl you are about 5ft 8in tall? If so the Pashley will be very limiting, also not the best regarding design or build quality! Only the large wheel Pashley has decent support for the seat tube, with the 20in wheelers the seat tube has been known to snap low down, ...

Re: New Year Honours

Hi there, Would awarding Tom Moore the "Order Of Lenin" suit the moaners on this thread? Maybe the Order of St Stanislaus meet approval??
In reality it is not the real issue, it is the gratuitous scattering of awards to Jobsworths and cronies that must be the real problem. MM

Re: Non-cycling books

Hi Reohn2, Should seek out Mike Clarke's book about restoring Juno, his elderly narrow boat? Have known Mike for over 55 years, lived not too far away and he was into the vintage car scene. Cycled as well, but he won't want reminding of the time he hit the gravel up close and personal! Very serious ...

Re: Too easy!

Hi all, I'm currently working through the "Politically Incorrect" output of W E Johns! A bit more worthy of rebuke than Herge, another of my favourites.
Biggles always prevails, much in the same way as Perry Mason :lol: . (the Burgers are on him always).

Takes one back to the 1950's. MM

Re: Too easy!

Hi nearly all, Why can't certain folk limit themselves to a Bi-Polar nature? They always have to got a lot further!
Hopefully one day they may actually get sorted in a civilized, amiable nature? MM, no variants available.
