Re: Rear wheel tight fit. Panda motor +9 speed. ICE recumbent

That reminds me of the Pashley Tri 1 upright trike that had a retrofitted motor fitted. Alongside the motor was a SA brake. Sorry can't say which, but very slim. I did manage to widen the front fork gap by about 1mm which made enough of a difference, but the operation was a tad dangerous because of ...

Re: Rear wheel tight fit. Panda motor +9 speed. ICE recumbent

Thanks very much. Changing the spacers has just been done to improve the freewheeling as there was a bit of drag. I am happy with the much freer movement, and will see if it remains so. The last spacers actually compressed over time slightly to create drag. The setting is really critical, so I think...

Rear wheel tight fit. Panda motor +9 speed. ICE recumbent

The 20inch rear wheel with a Panda electric motor and 9 speed on my wìfe's ICE ADVENTURE recumbent trike is a very tight fit and needs to be carefully fitted in the frame by entering the drive side first. It goes in, but my concern is being in the middle of nowhere with a puncture in the rear tyre! ...

Saddlebag rack 1956

If you were following my Peugeot bottle dynamo topic in Does Anybody Know, you may have seen it morphed into the above topic. For anyone interested in the photo of it, it's in that section.

Re: Credit card surcharge by Dutch company - illegal?

Thanks for all that information.
I have been trying to find a UK based holiday company instead!

Re: Car Parking Ardrossan

We went to Arran a couple of years ago and found to our delight a good supermarket right next to the ferry terminal at Ardrossan. It has a decent cafe upstairs and plenty scope for last minute purchases. Don't miss a wee visit to the converted school, now a museum in Brodick . Beautiful island. Cheers

Credit card surcharge by Dutch company - illegal?

Has anyone been charged a 3% surcharge by a Dutch company on a payment for a holiday (in our case by bike and boat) in Holland if using a credit card and paying for it while in the UK.? Was it not made EU law in January 2013 that this could not be done throughout the EU ( and beyond)? Apparently the...

Re: Peugeot 1982 bottle dynamo

I agree Brucey. Your photo example would be safe and secure and wouldn't put stress on the brazed on fitment. I really like these features unique to a particular brand and it would be barbaric to damage them, besides, repairing the damage would be totally impractical. My 1956 George Elrick frame has...

Re: Peugeot 1982 bottle dynamo

Thanks banknotes. Your photo is helpful. I too had difficulty trying to get a decent picture from the RHS of the bike with spokes and a carrier in the way. In the end I got one, but it wasn't helpful.

At last the mystery is solved.

Re: Peugeot 1982 bottle dynamo

Now it's all beginning to make sense. Your bracket pic and the idea of captive bolts changes everything. I was looking at lots of SOUBITEZ dynamo on eBay yesterday and couldn't see why none would fit. Your bracket is an example of the missing link. It also reminds me of frames with a short straight ...

Re: Peugeot 1982 bottle dynamo

Sorry about that, it's not the pic I wanted. Anyway, many thanks to all the most recent replies, you have cracked it, but as Brucey asks, what about the inside plate. That's what I was trying to show, but that hasn't worked. However, looking closely at this pic, you can see how long it is ( the top ...
