Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Steve, This is great news! Something to really look forward to. I will see if I can get my son to attend too on his 'Pro.(and my wife on her Sebring?) But I am sure to be there anyway. Kind of an English L'Eroica? Instead of wine and cheese, maybe some black pudding, crisps and warm beer? Thanks for...

Re: Multitools . . . Are they any good?

Sooper8 & LollyKat...sorry guys they are so hard to come by these days, it was only because I was trying to think of something to cheer my poorly friend up that I snaffled one that'd popped up on ebay the other day, NOS too :D The Gerber 'cool tool' is as difficult to find too £18 for a 2nd han...

Re: Multitools . . . Are they any good?

That's the one, mine's purple, just managed to source one for a friend seeing as she loved the colour and was impressed by how light yet was able to do the job much bulkier tools could do. No doubt it'd get badly scratched/gouged up if used as an everyday tool but as a carry around for very occasio...

Kickstarter project- 'Interlock' bike lock

This guy is close to his target, but it finishes in a couple of days. I am not affiliated in any way but thought people here might be interested . In short, it's a bike lock that is hidden away in the seat post- if you like things neat and tidy this will appeal. However, it doesn't have a solution f...

Re: Cycling Shorts

You'd need to buy inners with these as they have no built in padding and they are not cheap but I have found the Surface Liquistretch to be a great pair of shorts! They are cut well for cycling, with an offset back pocket.They stretch a bit and water just seems to roll off them. Look good off the bi...

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

I've got to say a MASSIVE thankyou to Busaste / Steve for building me the Aerosport. Like me, Steve had a Viscount at School, and like me it was cruelly stolen. I've always wondered what became of my old ruby red Viscount International but now thanks to Busaste I have an even better replacement. Th...

Re: Current weather

Today (15th Jan) I was driving southwards on the A38, busy dual carriageway, between Burton On Trent and Lichfield. (Bare with with me, I'll get to the bit about the weather conditions in a minute) If the rider of the modern road bike I passed just before Alrewas is on here, please listen up! (blac...

Re: YHA dead?

That was lucky for you it isnt officially part of the deal. Ilam must throw in the breakfast as part of the accommodation. I took advantage of the deal but it is a little bit skewed against children. So it costs myself and the two kids £6 more than it would cost for 4 adults! The meal was big enoug...

Re: YHA dead?

Just had a night at Ilam Derbyshire YHA. £38 for 2 people in room with en suite. Superb. Evening meal of beef stew & veg then apple pie. Morning was a full English fry up AND continental style to stock up on for the day (bread rolls, yoghurt, cheese, fruit, toast etc) Great food! £38 for both of...
