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

It occurs to me that we are using a double chainring in conjunction with the the single drive sprocket on a 3 speed hub, which is a different chain tensioner to the Brompton rear derailler. 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. One practical solution would be to carry a spare chainring, to switch between say 48 T and 54 T for...

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...

the least hassle solution


Like wot Brucey implied earlier, the least hassle solution would be friction shifters. You can use 6,7 or 8 speed, whatever you can find at the time, by simply changing hub spacers. And it's cheap.

Re: Any feedback about Hilltrek Kintail Shirt?

I used a lot of ventile in the 80's . I had a contact in the factory and was getting samples, test pieces and rejects for free. This wasn't Hilltreck's stuff. It didn't work well in the UK climate. When damp it goes board stiff and scratchy. Trousers and shirts were particularly uncomfortable. Think...

Re: Alex Salmond Charged with Attempted Rape

This is an active criminal case. Reporting restrictions are stronger in Scots Law than they are in England. Take a bit of care until after the final verdict.

mjr » 24 Jan 2019, 12:24pm Can you check if there is only one <trk> tag in the file, please? Searching with a text editor should suffice. There you go. I have skipped the bit in the middle, which is just a stream of <trkpnt>. Only one <trk> that I can see. Screenshot 1.jpg Screenshot 2.jpg
