I need to replace a few as I have not ridden for some time (UK)

See attached images.

They look to be 8mm by the length

Thanks

Re: Thank you

By that I feel a bit hill I need to climb over to get anywhere but I can't reach the next handholds, I can't even see them! If that makes sense. Lack ...

Re: Thank you

Since the realisation of my issues (note I don't think of myself being disabled or suffering) I'm more able to understand and pander to my likes and dislikes - to the continual disparagement of Mrs Mick F! :lol: Now I'm more understanding of myself, I'll go to bed when I want, and get up when I wan...

Re: Thank you

Remember too that NOW in the UK ASD/Autism IS a DISABILITY and as such you can now apply for Mobility or PIP.

YES I do get Mobility for my Autism, it was a fight but I never give up and am not ashamed of getting it, still a single father :)

Re: Thank you

I'm just curious because I've never been diagnosed got ADHD and at mid forties doubt I ever will (not just because it takes an average of at least 2 years of persistence to get referred to someone to get a diagnosis on adhd. Plus I've not ...
