A friend of mine just posted this on fb, is the same true of Cycling UK "In 2013 the rules regarding the recovery of legal costs in the event of a successful personal injury claim were changed such that they are now typically taken as a deduction of up to 25% of any settlement made. This includ...

Re: What do you think of this multi-tool?

https://www.evanscycles.com/topeak-survival-gear-box-EV162387 to me it's over priced for what you're getting. That was my initial reaction, but I'm not sure if i could put it together cheaper for the same quality. I really like the allen keys with different sizes at different ends - that seems to b...

Re: Garmin 800 not showing track up

Excellent! :D Now you've done a reset, you should check the software for updates. https://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp Done that thanks. I was getting a bit worried as I didn't want to have to buy another one. This one has served me well, and does what I need it to do. The n...

Re: Bikes on Trains UK - what do I need to know

I'm wondering what happens if you have a reservation, but the bike spaces are taken by bikes that are not reserved? I made a journey with a folder recently and spoke to another cyclist on board who'd just hung his bike up without a reservation, so no vacant bike spaces remained. I think you would h...

Re: Garmin 800 not showing track up

Yes, it was working for many years and at some point started doing what I have described. This was annoying, but didn't really cause too many issues over winter, but now it's summer and I'm touring again on unfamiliar roads, and it's led my astray a few times. I will erase the data - I don't need an...

(Tools) > Activity Profiles > (choose profile) > Navigation > Map > Orientation Should let you check / change the setting. Actually just plugged it in to Garmin Express and it s...

My garmin 810 has developed a problem where it's not showing "track up" when navigating In fact it often shows me cycling "track down" It does show trackup when it zooms into a junction, but doesn't recognise all junctions, and sometimes thinks that bends are junctions when they ...
