Superb! That looks spot on.
Can I ask what mud-gaurds you have on? I am thinking of kitting one of my 'Sports out as a 'tourer' like that.

Re: 'Best' combination lock?

Vladimir, I am exactly the same when it comes to house & car cars (and a Leatherman Squirt and small LCD torch all on a key ring) I know at all times it's within my right hand pocket, always. But when on my bike, I don't often want to carry all of that around- but sometimes I have to if no one ...

Re: 'Best' combination lock?

Thanks all. Kwackers, I am doing my best on the un-fashionable. It's a beat up looking and scratched 1978 drop bars 'racer' (Viscount 'Sport to be precise), so unless the thief is a discerning vintage/retro connoisseur then they will chose others before mine. I suppose I was trying to get away from ...

'Best' combination lock?

I have been reading the reviews on Amazon etc but just wanted a few thoughts/opinions on the 'best' deal on a combination lock. Few things to consider- I don't expect it to withstand concerted attempts (ie angle grinder or long arm cutters) but it has to do the job to deter and prevent theft. Ideall...

Re: Cycling and Socialism

I'm not sure how pertinent it is to your OP, but HG Wells was socialist in his outlook, and a number of his social narratives give an interesting view about the class system of his day, technology, and where he thought events might lead. In particular, you might get some insight from his charming n...

Re: What's your favourite ride?

I like cycling locally around places that I knew as a kid, with a friend I've known since I was 4 or 5, doing about 20-30 miles- generally stopping off at a pub. Second choice is to cycle alone I can understand loners. Groups are fun but only for so long I find. Tend not to drink when riding. There...

Re: Aldi cycling clothing clearance

Here in Burton they did that 2 weeks ago. I bought about 10 pairs of decent short socks for less than £2.20!
Worth having a look.
They were also selling bike stands for 2 bikes
