Re: New to London and Cycling, in need of a new frame.

Hi guys, I recently came to London from Aus and my bike frame got damaged in the transport, looking at reusing as much as I can in regards to gear sets etc. No longer necessarily after a carbon frame either. So looking for a new frame and recommendation of where to buy it, I've been into a few stor...

Re: Converting from flats to butterfly bars

Just idly speculating at the moment because I've always wondered what butterfly/trekking bars are like. I've not immediately found a guide on how to convert, but from the various pictures it looks as though you should end up with the side of the bars which are closest to you, and have the brakes an...

Re: BBC Bias again

Pretty sure that the majority of us on here will find this character distasteful [...] I don't see the relevance of trying to hoodwink people into watching Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (who calls himself Tommy Robinson after a football hooligan) to this discussion. HOODWINK how dare you accuse me of doing...

Re: Anyone else putting off touring decisions due to Br***t?

Lots of mentions of losing EHIC and a few about getting health insurance. A warning. Given the age of many on this forum and some of the reported ailments, I would advise getting a quote before booking a trip. 65 is a threshold for many policies and pre existing conditions can bump up the cost cons...

Re: Anyone else putting off touring decisions due to Br***t?

If there is indeed one thing in which the UK is fundamentally different from the rest of Europe it is social inequality. In Britain the rich are filthy rich, and the poor are desperately poor. If you look at the statistics the contrast is enormous. And now it is upper class twits like Jacob Rees-Mo...
