    First time trial on a trike

    I did the Lincoln Wheelers CC (Tricycle only ) 10 Saturday my first time riding a time trial and had a thoroughly good time ^_^ Only managed 32:41 but considering the total amount of preparation was taking the Carradice off and swapping the Brooks for a Charge spoon (big mistake,way to grippy)...

    That time of the year is coming fast!

    And by that , I mean winter is on its way and the weather is deteriorating so are your cycling outings slowing down? Mine are, I don't go out cycling as much now and pick my days more carefully due to bad weather and less daylight hours as I won't cycle in the dark. In a few weeks time, I guess...

    Brompton waiting time

    A tentative Brompton inquiry gathered the news that waiting time for a custom Brommie is currently 13 weeks. Longer than usual, a bike ordered today might not arrive before Christmas. My Brommie dealer, who professes no inside knowledge, wonders if the delay is caused by Brexit. I hate to...

    Its nearly getting time to get the Mountain bike out again

    Hi, After a great summer of road bike riding its now getting ever closer to getting the MTB out again for the winter months. My road bike is always kept in perfect condition and spotlessly clean and the thought of getting it caked in filthy country lane winter muck is not for me. The Mtb on the...

    Back after a loooong time away!

    I'm not exactly new, as I was once a long time member and moderator - but circumstances meant that I got so little time to visit the site a few years ago that I handed in my sheriff's badge and moseyed on off into the wilderness. And there I remained - until today. For today is the day that I...

    Flourescent tube taking long time to 'come on'. Whats the reason?

    Its a 4 foot tube in the garage so gets plenty of use. Must be 10 years old (so owes me nothing). Lately it is taking a long time to warm up (if thats the phrase). Do all flouresent bulbs have starters ? If so is it likely to be bulb, starter or both ? Its that long since I touched I cant...

    Time Atac Cleats

    Does anyone have a set of Time Atac cleats they don't use anymore. My daughter has started using cleats & I now need another set. I'm loathe to buy a new set in case she doesn't get on with them.... :okay:

    N+1 strikes a 2nd time in 10 days.

    So, following my purchase last week of the Lombardia spotted by Biggsy on e-bay (picking up next week), I was talking to a good friend of mine and my wife about it (she sells a lot (non-bike stuff) on e-bay) and she piped up "my mum has got a lot of old bikes in her various sheds at home"...

    Time to dust off the Laser engraver.

    Well the owner went and bought out an engraving company about a year and a half ago. He had no plans just got a good deal and bought it. So I'm getting sick of walking by it and figured it was time to knock off the dust. So I started playing around with some ideas the last couple of weeks to...

    Borrowed time.

    Look at my rear Conti 5000 TL after maybe 1500 miles. Would that have been a pinch flat with a tube? I’ve probably had too much pressure in rather than too little. The only real bangs I can recall are from the Fred Whitton cattle grids back mid May. I will be buying IRC from Japan next.

    June/July - bad time to buy?

    Sadly, my beloved road bike was stolen yesterday. I did the London to Brighton ride and left it locked outside a pizza place that I had a quick lunch in. It was literally 5 metres away from me and despite glancing sideways every couple of mouthfuls, some charmer was able to cut the lock and be...

    Random musings of a first time tourer.

    Random thoughts that came into my mind as I pedalled, and camped, the length of the country. ~~ You really don't have to take everything with you. Other places have shops, too. Not all villages have shops. Get stuff when you can. Tins of food with no ringpull are extremely annoying if you...

    Spotted that one just in time .

    Checking the seatpost height on the carbon today i decided to check it for play so undid and the alloy seatpost was stuck . Cue a liberal dousing in wd 40 to get it loose and a bit of yanking and found the paint had been ground off and scratches on the post . If i had left it much longer i...

    New Bike (Not Me, This Time, Though!!)

    Picked up 'Senior Managements' new bike today I'd offered to buy her one, as she'd started using daughters (10+ year) old Apollo to ride about on, as part of a fitness/weight-loss regime She even rode to her Office on it 3 times!(1) Rather cunningly, as I've bought it, & she's not paid...

    Time to log some road miles.

    With the temps in the 40's and 50's lately and the trails not in the best riding conditions, the road bikes are starting to get some miles in. Just having fun playing on some hills lately and working out a calf issue. Even though I've been switching to more trail riding I still very much enjoy...

    Anyone know of Phone network which will keep talk time for ever ?

    Hello All, I'm sure I could have worded the question better but do any of the phone networks still do pay as you go in the old style ie: I put £10 on the phone and it lasts till I use that talk time rather than I automatically lose it at the end of the month ? I 'm looking to put an emergency...

    Hello @Moderators or anyone else that may know.....I just went back to an older page of my street art thread to add in some artist information, that I didn't know at the time of my original post. I noticed I was unable to edit older posts. I am able to edit the more recent pages, but not the...

    Looks like the time has come to hang up my driving gloves

    I am 60 in February next year and I've held my HGV1 licence since the age of 21, and in this morning post was my renewal for that licence. After initially being a full time HGV driver for a few years and being away from home four or five nights a week, it was later used more in conjunction with...

    Over distance - over time

    I could probably find the answer to this with a bit of a search, but I'm lazy. I'm looking at this, which is 426km. If I were to enter this I'd be dicing with the time limit. The stated minimum speed is 15km/h. That would require 26:40 for 400k. But the time limit stated is 27:00 that's a...
