Re: A view from the outside

Perhaps the presence of the long-running (and mostly on-topic) Brex*it thread offends your senses? Especially when coupled with the fact that the majority of contributors are anti-Brex*it?

A view from the outside

I have frequented this forum intermittently for some time, occasionally interjecting by leaving a comment or otherwise. However I have found myself becoming somewhat disturbed by the often degeneracy into subject drift and political comment, quite frequently with total disregard to the OP’s original...

Re: Squeaky cycling shoes!

Hi roubaixtuesday, and thanks for the reply. I normally give the pedals a brief squirt of unction of various kinds before most rides. I do use the multiple release cleats so there may be a bit of movement at the interface, however I have tried them with the direct pull type and they still squeak. I ...

Squeaky cycling shoes!

Moved away from road shoes and “Look” type cleats several years ago, could no longer cope with the slip and slide off the bike, to remind me of my youth bought a pair of Giro republics (SPD) nice shoes; but the squeaking has started to drive me bananas! Originally considered it was new footwear sque...

Re: Med to Atlantic

Dependent on local conditions you might have the edge of the "mistral" in your face for the whole for the first half of the trip; and just past the oceanic/semi oceanic convergent you would probably get the westerlies (Ponente) in your face. But on the up side your legs would definitely be...

Re: Fave quotes...

Can't remember where this one comes from and I may be paraphrasing, however.

Re: Saddles (Probably Again)

Many thanks for the replies, Mrs KTHS uses a Selle Italia on her road bike and thinks its "wonderful", the heavy tourer has a quite old Terry "liberator" which she is also quite fond of, but that is coming to the end of its useful life. Having said that it doesn't owe her any mon...

I am trying to source a high quality female orientated saddle for other half's Audax bike that needs to have saddle loops. She is unable to get on with Brooks and to be quite honest would not appreciated the "break in" period associated with other leather saddles (Spa, Rivett). The main ai...
