Re: Heavily Loaded Bicycles

Thank you all, folks, and here's another one for you - on a similar vein.

Someone also put up photographs of overloaded bikes - not tourers - does anyone know where this post is, please?

regards to all, Braz.

Heavily Loaded Bicycles

Well, I can't find it! - someone put a link on the forum some while ago regarding heavy loads on touring bikes - and ridiculous loads on other bikes.

Does someone know where it is, please?

Re: How old to do LEtJOG

Hello, we are recently back from France, where we met a family on a cycling holiday - Dad, Mum, daughter 8, son 10, daughter 12, and babies of 2 and less than one in a trailer and on a back seat! They were averaging 50 - 60 km per day with no trouble at all (we were roughtly on the same route and ke...

Re: Gites in Brittany

Hello, try Geoff Husband at http://www.bretonbikes.com. He has a gite to rent (a little bit higher than central Moriban) at Gouarec, right next to the Nantes-Brest Canal. He also knows of many other places as he runs cycling holidays in the area. Mention my name to get an instant discount! There are...

Re: Tony Oliver`s book; Touring Bikes.

For what it's worth, we sell copies of this book - in VG conditon - for £30.00, and yes, we do make a small margin on them as we are in business! Tony is now retired from bikes and has been working as a photographer in the Scottish islands for some while. The book may be quite old now, but the infor...

Re: Carry Freedom - losing wheels!

Oh well, another can of worms! It is, however, quite illogical that just because other posters have the same product and have not had problems that they are so defensive in support of their trailer - when one cannot know what their reaction might have been if the problems had been theirs. And guys, ...

Re: Carry Freedom - losing wheels!

What a wonderful opportunity for Carry Freedom to show just how good their after sales service is - regrettably it seems, a missed opportunity. Difficult to contact, defensive when contact is made, blaming everyone except himself and his product, and to compound it all he knew that there were proble...

Re: LEJOG on a mountain bike

Oh, experts are they! Get them to read a few of Mick F's posts, indent for a set of stickers and use your own bike - you can sanitise it when you finish! Of course the ride is possbile on anything - but the bike that suits you best is the one to use. Stickers won't show up as well as a brightly deco...

Re: Crediton to Tiverton (Rob's Passage)

Well! - from Thorverton you might as well carry on to Bradninch and Cullompton, and up the old A38 - save having to get from Tiverton to the same place! One hill over Bradninch, but nothing insurmountable. And a cafe in Cullompton as well! Mick, just back from France and found your laden/unladen pos...

Re: Leeds - Cannondale Tandem Stolen + 2 other bikes

A bit late I know, but I've just caught your post. Any pictures? - they always seem to help. It might also be worth another post a bit higher up on the site with a link to this one "see stolen" - just to cover all the bases. And do keep a lookout on Ebay, as 'stolens' do appear after a lit...
