Re: ALDI's biggest ever bike stuff sale

Hi, Fact all taxes come from the private sector profits. I think there might need to be inverted commas around 'profits'? Every rail company in the UK is subsidised by tax payers money. Fact. Therefore are their 'profits' something people would recognise as clear 'profit'? Also, a large number of b...

When it's good it's great, when it's bad it's still better than lots of other things.

Re: ALDI's biggest ever bike stuff sale

I used to live close to an Aldi store and I discovered by accident that they were placing the 'Specialbuys' out the night before, ready for the following morning. It was great as I had my pick of everything without having to endure the crowd that was waiting in the morning for the store to open. Ob...

Re: Sore bum!

I had something similar. I hadn't ridden much at all during Jan-Feb-March this year , except one off rides once or twice a week. Then I rode 3 consecutive days and had almost the same feeling as you (day 3 not awful, just pretty uncomfortable) - this was after never having had a problem before. I tr...

Re: Earth Overshoot Day (13 Aug this year)

I think this is a very useful way of visualising the impact that consumption has on our planet.

Thanks for drawing it to our attention.

Re: Hurry to the M&S web site!

For info, I have a couple of pairs of these. Very comfy (slightly stretchy), well worth that price. I bought when they were slightly higher price (about £18 I think), and thought that was very reasonable. The original price was something like £45. If you order and have them delivered to a local stor...

Re: How do you size Koga Miyata trekking bike?

Thank you very much for that extensive reply - just digesting all of that.
I'm 31" inside leg , almost 50, 5'8". So in some ways a more laid back geometry might work for me.
Thanks

How do you size Koga Miyata trekking bike?

Admittedly I'm on my phone, in the middle of a field ( with screen glare) & might just be missing it, but I can't find anything on their web site in order to help size a trekking bike. I know that ideally I'd ride it to get the size but I'd like to at least know roughly where I might be first I ...

Re: So......this helmets thing

I've no real interest in the helmet debate but thought I'd bring to peoples attention that I know a number of schools that have , or are introducing, a rule that youngsters can't ride their bike to school unless they wear a helmet.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

bwallis42 - what a great story to go with the bike. That is serious dust on there, but I bet when cleaned up and tweaked, and you are picking up pace on a down hill, then you'll feel 30 years younger!
