Yes, probably more to the point. People that have no business running the CTC either way.

Re: CTC - The Cycle Transport Campaign - How about being bol

I've got no problem with that. To my mind travel and transport are but two sides of the same cycling coin. We want the same facilities, broadly the same kind of bike and CTC has always been about both. So why not have both? The initials of are the same after all. I first suggested at least 20 years...

Re: DEMAND FOR A POLL OF THE WHOLE CLUB

Not wanting to get involved in the rights & wrongs of the re-branding, I do think it's quite shocking that the majority of our club members, knew nothing about the change of name at our clubroom slideshow last Thursday.. This cant be right & some of our elder members felt let down by the CT...

Re: Holdsworth frame builders

If you are collecting Holdsworth frame numbers, my Mistral's frame number is 045643, it's a 25.5" frame in spruce green. I kept the label, it says Holdsworthy and Assembly no.101794. I believe it to uses 531 butted Reynolds tubing which from a website catalogue I found, suggests it was made ar...

Re: Holdsworth frame builders

OK, this frame came to me 'in a bit of a state', built up with some rubbish components and the wrong, paint, wrong fork etc (amongst other things). The frame number is in the 427xx series. Because there were no original parts remaining, I have no clue as to its date except that by frame number (and...

Re: Holdsworth frame builders

Cheers! Have also been collecting Holdsworth frame numbers. Would be interested to know your Holdsworth model + exact frame number and year of purchase if known. The earliest Holdsworth '40000' frame number I have (so far) from the 1970s is a Holdsworth (prob Mistral) no.40611, which is dated 1972 o...

Re: Fractured collarbone

I was back on the bike about 4 weeks after breaking mine in a crash in a road race. :x The bad news was that I was starting a new job the following day on the Monday morning. Eyebrows were certainly raised when I presented myself to work with my arm in a sling! But........seven weeks later I then b...

Re: Universal centre pull model 61

should add I have asked on another board about fork length from a chap who has a 1967 Super Mistral, so am hoping with that info I'll have pretty accurate info I need. However anyone reading this who has a late 60s Super Mistral that knows their fork length please do let me know!

Re: Universal centre pull model 61

Cheers, and no need to apologise, I really struggle with the measurements(!), not helped by the fact I don't have the frame with me at the moment and can't get to it for at least a week! Thanks very much!

Universal centre pull model 61

I would be very grateful for some help in understanding whether a pair of Universal brake calipers model 61 would be compatible with 700cc rims? I admit to getting confused about how the reach is worked out, as it also involves knowing the measurements of the forks as well? I am thinking of buying S...
