Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Just in case you think we might be a 'weird bunch' here is a photo from last year.....(I'm not saying if this photo dispels that myth or if it confirms it! :lol: ) A very nice family day out and the nicest people you could meet. If you want to come along, feel free, even if you don't have a Lambert/...

What is the best quality , light ,budget, 1 man tent ?

I know it has been asked before, but with each new year, it could do with a refresh? So, no apologies for asking something that has been done before. What is the best quality , light ,budget, 1 man tent for UK in spring/summer? and not heavy use.(ie an occasional user in half decent weather in situa...

The same bike was posted on the Lambert and Viscount forum and I offered to help load the photos for the seller but didn't hear anything back when I pm'd.

Re: Viscount bicycles!!

Just another plea for anyone with an old Lambert or Viscount in the shed gathering dust, (and that they may be thinking of scraping or selling for parts) There is quite a community of Lambert and Viscount lovers here who could either bring it back to life or definitely use the hard to find parts if ...

Re: Hybrid Bike Advice

+1 on Decathlon. A lot of bike for the money and decent quality too.

Re: Is a decent cheap folding bike available?

This is similar to one of those problems that is discussed frequently on the cycle camping forum...?

You can have cheap, quality and light but just not all at the same time? ie one or the other has to be compromised?

Finally got around to seeing the Dr today and he said 'post viral cough' and will eventually go away, and 4 weeks isn't u...

Re: Tracking mileage

Re: Multi Function Watches

Very nice Seiko MickF. That is a quality watch though, even if it was cheap. That is still a Seiko bracelet though, even though it has been changed? Nice history to it which brings it alive to me. ps if it ever stops working and you need it, I can put you on to good , reasonable , trustworthy watch ...
