Re: Spa Cycles (Harrogate)

My wife had excellent service when sorting out a dynohub wheel as a present for me for Christmas despite not being an expert on what she was ordering.

Fab service and an excellently built wheel.

Re: Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells

....and there was was me being attacked by multiple people on Facebook when I disagreed with the CTC's post on supporting children cycling on pavements. Its the lack of parental control I object to having been cycled into. But it's okay, they've got magic hats. Perhaps I need one as a pedestrain (an...

Re: Feed and drink stations

You should try audaxes. A more challenging ride for the discerning cyclist.

Not to mention cheaper and usually better cake! :D

Re: New wheel...Rapid loss of spoke tension

Just had this happen to a twenty year old wheel. Been fine for years but hadn't been ridden for a year. Went to take it out when I noticed all the spokes in the rear wheel had slackened off.

Short of a poltegeist, I'm lost to how this could have happened.......

Re: ICE seat clips...

There should be a pop rivet on the rail which the notch on the neck rest bracket fits into. Its this which stops the assembly rotating. The clips merely need to be tight enough to stop the bracket travelling over the pop rivet.

Re: Where can I try a 'bent?

I understand Kevin is out there somewhere but his ability to reply to people/deal with business has left me a bit embarrassed after sending a couple of people his way.

Ditto. What do I know with my years of working in Intensive Care units and looking after head injuries. Probably nothing.

Re: Police Taking No Action - Advice Please

I remember a letter like this following an accident I had some years ago. Its basically giving you the information to pursue a civil case for damages if you wish to do so (the burden of proof in a civil court is lower than that required in a criminal case). Good luck in whatever you choose. However,...

Re: Hearing back from the police

Time to start dealing with tardy police exactly the same way as Mrs.Wildduck and I did following her being assaulted on Saturday evening.

When they don't turn up to take statements and don't return calls, start muttering complaints and local press.

Funny how they started jumping.......

Re: Filming while cycling - what strategy?

Time to perhaps report offenders to the police, insist on crime reference numbers and make formal complaints when matters are not dealt with. I'm quite happy to do half a dozen a week (should be enough to get that number). If enough of us do this perhaps it could force a change in attitude to dealin...
