Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

The first posting in this thread was a query about using a multi fuel stove in the Western Isles. If you type the name of the island accompanied by the word “shop” into google maps it will give you an idea of the local services; the bigger islands have hardware shops and petrol stations.

Re: Best Folding Tourer?

Our household has been touring with folding bikes since the 80’s. We have used moultons, cresswells, bromptons, dahons, terns and random short lived cheap folding bikes with wheel formats in 16, 20, 24 and 26 inches. I would concur completely with what has been said up thread about Bromptons. Most o...

Re: Adult Stabilisers for ice?

I am writing this from Hallingdal, Norway. (Hello Vorpal). There is a meter of snow lying and hard packed ice on the roads. People are still nipping about on bikes. The secret is studded tyres and practise.

Re: Brompton clip to fit front deraillurer

I don't know what the effect might be of a big change in the angle of the rear derailler caused by the use of ...

Re: Brompton clip to fit front deraillurer

S2L » 27 Feb 2019, 11:12am Back to gearing, with a LeJoG in mind currently I have 74 inch and 52 inch, but the first day in Cornwall/Devon (and possibly further north) will require something smaller.

Re: Is there any way I can get hold of one of these in the UK?

Your video is describing an electric motorbike. If you were to build something like that you would need to have it type approved (in the same way as a DIY kitcar; there is a procedure), registered, pay the relevant vehicle tax, insure it, fit a number plate and wear a legal motorbike helmet. There a...
