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

You say overlap, Bob. Does it not fit with the end faces against each other?

Re: Front jersey pockets

Not yet. She is still admiring it hanging up in the hall. I should be packing for our holiday tomorrow, I must ask her if she intends to take it. We are going to Fort William after all!,, Average rainfall ----- well above average I believe, but hopefully the midges won't have wakened up yet!

Re: Front jersey pockets

At last, today a parcel has arrived from Hawkshead containing a bright yellow rain jacket with two front pockets and an inside pocket. MBH is delighted with it.
I didn't think this topic would generate so much interest.

Thanks

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.

Thanks for all that information.

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...
