Re: WIMPS Coast To Coast 2019

Hill climbing - in the Fylde - you've got to be joking. :roll:
We have one or two severe hump back bridges and :-

About 30ft above sea level. :)

Has anyone got thoughts on where we are spending the night before the start. ?

Re: Free horse product in a bag.

If it's on a path why aren't horse owners made to pick up the poo as per dog owners ?

Re: Campagnolo Veloce shifter issues

OK another question, how do you know which exit for the gear cable? Depends on whether you want the cable to go behind or in front of the bars. The slot shown guides the wire over to the front whereas the other slot guides the wire around the back and under . I have mine as shown above and the oute...

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

Is it travel lodge that charge £30 a room a night for early bookings. Two sharing a twin room £15 a night is not much more than camping Supposedly yes. I have never been lucky enough to come across any though. And then there is the issue of location or they are never where you want them. :roll: htt...

Re: Lejog for wimps please- or am I on my own? ( merged )

Or stay hotels B&B? I need somewhere to charge ebike batteries. Obviously cost would increase by quite a bit compared with camping and even more so if taking 3 weeks. The advantage is the weight of "luggage" would drop as only need to carry clothing. B&Bs should have the requisite...

Re: Flying bike on telly- Bang Goes The Theory

That's quite impressive but why four large rotors? Surely smaller, faster rotating rotors would reduce the size of the arms and thus the weight by quite a lot. Need some technical background. Size matters. Large wings are more efficient than small ones. Large propellers again are more efficient tha...

Re: where to order headset compression ring for bearing?

This is my headset bearing set. Does it show the part that you say is missing?

It may be you will have to buy a complete new kit but then at least you will have spare new bearings for future use.

Re: Cutting the grass

Outside our drive gate is a grassy bank. It's not ours but I and a neighbour keep it neat and tidy with a mow when needed. There are also some trees which again we keep neat as needed. The other day I cleared some overhanging branches to above head height and then proceeded to mow the grass. Lastly ...

Re: Campagnolo Veloce shifter issues

Are the Veloces similar to the "Escape" versions ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_2G5NgluQM Some of Campag's newer Ergos are classed as unservicable :x and Campag' spares are becoming hard to source these days but Velotech may be able to help. ? http://www.velotech-cycling.ltd.uk/campag...
