Re: Pimp my Brompton- respray?

I am considering having my Brommy resparayed as I am sick of the ever returning rust ( it is simply one coat of paint onto bare metal,one chip and the rust starts ). I will take it to Ellis Briggs in Shipley.West Yorks where I bought it from ( they used to outsource paintwork to Bob Jacksons in Leed...

Re: Epididymitis question

Has anyone (men only obviously) ever had this? Mine has now become chronic (i.e. over 3 months) and now I am off the antibiotics it seems to be getting worse again. I've had a scan and all is clear in that respect but there seems to be little useful advice coming from doctors and urologists. I have...

Re: Brompton - good or gimic?

I have had a Brommie for about four years that was originally bought for my wife but unfortunately she rarely rode it. I have found the fold and ride to be excellent despite the small wheels,it just takes some getting used to.The front pannier bag is good too ( I have no rear rack ). Having said tha...

Re: Has CTC insurance ever had to pay out?

I asked CTC N.O for statistics on insurance claims. You might be interested in the following reply. Statistics are of course available and are the basis of negotiation of renewal of CTC's insurance policies every year. The statistics are communicated to Council but not to the general membership as ...

Re: Ahhhh booking bike on Train !

More trouble than it's worth these days unless you go on the same route a lot and get to know the system. Just as I don't go to as many football matches these days because it is usually impossible to turn up at the ground and get in, I won't take my bike on a train either. I liked it when I could d...

Re: Councils may run out of hyperbole before Christmas

I am surprised that anyone can get anywhere on the roads during this slight chill for the 4x4's of reporters driving to stand in a foot of snow to tell us it is snowing. In this region Look North is particularly good at it. My daughter works for the Environment Agency and she tells me that when it f...

Re: Rutland Cycling

I know that this kind of thing can be frustrating bu tin my opinion CRC, Wiggle and Rutland all have their issues. The reason I persoanlly purchase from Rutland is price, and 7.5 times out of ten they can deliver without issue. If you are looking for the best deal I reckon that you have to put up w...

JD Cycles Offer

If anyone lives in the Yorkshire area,JD Cycles of Ilkley are doing an offer of 10% off parts and 30% off labour "whilst the snow lasts".

http://www.jdcycles.co.uk/

I have nothing to do with JD's,just saved myself a pound or two on some work.

Re: Rutland Cycling

Back in August they were advertising a case for the Satmap GPS which I knew full well wasn't launched at the time ( It had been cancelled a couple of times ). Out of curiosity I rang them to ask to buy one and they said they didn't have them in stock nor did they know when they were going to get the...
