Not sure if this the right place: I have a friend who is currently cleared out his garage ( sold the land it sits on) of which were around 50 bicycles! He has offered me a chance to buy them. They are all stacked up onto a trailer, so I couldn't get to view them properly . Mostly 80's and 90's...
Was at the bike shop Thursday with the grand buddies as they got there new bikes. They are bigger than what they are used to and we have the seats low for now until they get comfortable starting and stopping. Today was the first day on the trails with them, as we rolled out toward the lake. The...
Just picked a Hope road bike up locally but a quick Google doesn't bring up much in the way of information apart from one picture on the cycling weekly site from the 2010 bike show anyone have any information ?
Hiya, whilst waiting to get in Sainsbury’s this affy there were two l Planet X London Road bikes locked up together, tbf they looked decent I think they are a town cx sort of combo , nicely finished frames , not hot deraileurs etc but with regular maintenance you’d get your bobs worth out of em,
This may be an absurd idea, but I'll ask for opinions.
I am in the north of England and have an old detached single skin brick garage.
No leaking water etc. and the doors are not a perfect fit, so there is some ventilation.
I am wondering if there is any advantage to building a wood...
About this time of year I start planning my summer trip. I have several possible ideas subject to persuading the family that I won't be needed for a short period. Does anyone have practical experience of travel on trains in France with bikes?
For local TER trains the journey planners state that...
Anyone know the story with the apparent demise of Bikes Etc?
Website says "no longer available to purchase as a subscription product", and it's been missing from the shelves for a while now.
Preliminary googling not revealing anything.
I had been planning on getting the cube when I could afford it, but have just seen this Scott, following another thread here. can anyone point out major differences please? I could probably go for the scott now........ and am a bit impatient
Does anyone know of a secure, off-the-shelf bike shed (Asgard etc.) that will accommodate a longer bike, such as a Kona Ute, or even a Bakfiets style?
I've looked at Asgard but their biggest is the 8x4 'Access' which, while long enough internally, has the door aperture centred, meaning it may...
Folks just a heads up local bike shop gone done over at the weekend, huge amount stolen. Be aware of stupidly cheap offers for bikes etc.
Well, new to me in one case. Mrs Gas has just taken delivery of a new Electric Brompton courtesy of an interest free loan from Nicola Sturgeon. She could have had it a month ago but she wanted the white model so had to wait a bit. It'll allow her, in her severely unfit state, to ride to work...
I've just bought a van to carry bikes. A Renault trafic crew-cab long wheelbase. Until now the bikes have been on the roof of my car and I hated them being outside, particularly on very long wet journeys.
The new problem is- How do I fasten them in the back of the van? It is ply lined. I've...
As some of you know I currently ride my trusty Tern Joe ludicrously large folding bike. I have been enjoying doing some longer distance rides (55 and 65 miles so far as well as lots of 20 and 30 mile rides as training) and am painfully aware that this isn't really the right sort of bike...
This is going to sound very much like a newbie question but so what, here goes
As a rider of some 50 odd years, I have always been fairly old school and have pottered/zoomed around on various forms of steel framed bikes.
Now, having just returned from the NEC bike show, I am all starry eyed...
I must have a more comfortable/relaxed road bike.
My LBS has made an offer for my Giant Defy carbon.......not what I hoped but I suppose realistic.
My son wants my Giant Talon 1 hardtail although IMO its too small for him.
I am trying to decide between
a) Cannondale Quick 1 (ally frame as they...
Was going to just take these to the tip, but thought might as well offer on here first. Seems a shame to just throw away. Two bikes bought approx. 18 years ago and probably not ridden for last 15 years. My girl would have been around 10 and boy 12. Will need a good overhaul. Some rust in places...
my LBS has made an offer. If I accept I am obliged to buy what he has to offer. So.. ..... re the Giant Defy. £525 will give you a real bargain. Anyone who wants it will have to move asap as I have a decision to make.
I have decided to sell both my bikes and get one...
Does anyone have any experience of/tips on taking bikes on trains in Germany.
I’m considering cycling from Rotterdam to Frankfurt, then returning to Rotterdam by train.
I know the train service in Holland is very bike friendly, but have no experience of same in Germany.
I've just been looking at a Specialized Diverge online and in the close-up shots I notice that there's quite a gap between the fork top and the head tube. Past experience tells me that water flung off the front wheel will go straight in there, penetrate and sit around the bearing, which will be...
Is there anything on this site or another website where I can view vintage bikes - don't mean penny farthings, etc but old style retro "racing" bikes for example, preferably Bianchi! I did have a look through the photo gallery but couldn't see anything.
Thanks in advance
Well my bikes on its way to Hungary for the start of the Transcontinental Race.
Unfortunately the start is in Bulgaria. But that does not appear to matter to the shipping company.
I thought I had made it clear enough.
