Re: ? Garmin Edge 205 gps, any good for audax events?

Evening all, To find your current location on the 305, scroll through to the Main Menu using the Mode button. Go to the Navigation tab and select Mark Location. This displays your current location in degrees, minutes and seconds, and your altitude. There is no way of selecting any other units for de...

Re: ? Garmin Edge 205 gps, any good for audax events?

What do you want to use the 205 for? Navigating or recording? FWIW, I have a 305 that I use mostly for recording (particularly monitoring cadence), but reckon the battery life is questionable for a long ride. Downside of the 205/305 is that if you get lost, location data is in degrees, minutes and s...

Re: Cornwall coast to coast

Thanks chaps (chapesses? :lol: ) We did the Camel Trail two or three years ago, and we'll definitely be having a crack at the Coast to Coast with the trailer. Hoping that middle son might want to brave the tag-a-long, but doesn't seem as keen as his now self-propelled (and cycle speedwaying) older b...

Cornwall coast to coast

Good morning all, Have any of you cycled the Cornwall Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast route (Portreath to Devoran), please? If so, would you say it is accessible with a child trailer? We're staying down that way over the summer and it looks like an excellent family-friendly route, unless anyone know...

Re: This is a new hazard....

Overtaking on the zigzags not an offence in Cambridge, then?!

Afternoon all, For what it's worth, I brought my bike up from Newton Abbot to Sheffield on a Sunday evening Cross Country service this summer. The conductor hung it by its front wheel in the bike space. I left it without locking it and then found my (very cheap) reserved first class seat at the othe...

Shimano PD-A520 pedal

Anyone used these, and is the 'deck shoe' side actually usable?
Thank you,

Absolute maximum (according to computer) 49.8 mph dropping into Hathersage from Hook's Car.

Regular 40 mph around Sheffield Ring Road, dropping from University roundabout to Shalesmoor (a little slower coming back t'other way...)

Thanks gents, I'll go carefully - trying to 'modernise' on a shoestring and don't want to break things that don't need replacing (my wife won't be happy if I do...) On a similar note, is it feasible to fit new brake calipers that are secured with allen bolts onto the mountings where the current nut/...

Pedal threads

Afternoon all,
I want to replace the pedals on a 20 year old Peugeot - are threads on new clipless pedals likely to be compatible?
Thanks,
