Had that before back when I had mechanical discs - rear used to quite regularly seize up when it got below zero degrees - usually once I'd been through Richmond Park and was in need of stopping at the exit gates.... Always suspected a bit of moisture in the rear cable loopSo cold that my rear derailleur didn't want to spring back fully and the rear brake cable was also stiff. Suspect some water may have got into them (cleaned bike yesterday) as they're both fine now.
Had it happen a couple of times, riding through Leeds (mainly on Kirkstall Road)Had a numpty try to left hook me at a junction. According to him, and I quote, "You saw me indicating, you should have stopped".
I was ahead of him and he had tried to overtake to get around the junction.
I. was. ahead. of. him.
A WVM type stopped at the incident and gave it "You were in the wrong mate, shouldn't come up the inside of cars". He also caught my ire and expletives.
They are just idiots playing with everyone else`s lives. The annoying thing is, is that most have garages (that is what they were built for) but are so full of old toot that they can`t get a car in. Having said that I know a lot of garages are not that wide for cars nowadays but there is always the option of windscreen covers. No excuse for peep holes.Despite the freezing conditions of the past few days, most drivers have been sensible and cleared their screens before setting off - until this morning that is.
Coming up to a mini roundabout I could hear a strange scraping noise and, looking up the road to my left, I could see an Audi Q7 approaching with a couple of small holes at the base of the windscreen where the heater was just starting to work and the driver hoping that the windscreen wipers would do the job that a proper scraper, de-icing liquid or warm water should have done before setting off. Judging by the blaring horn behind me having cleared the roundabout, it would appear that the Audi didn't stop due to lack of visibility...
A stoat is weaselly recognised but a weasel is stoatally different. Not cold enough to be in ermine ? Or is that something else !?Saw a stoat on our school run cycle this morning. No hi viz. No lights in the fog. Hadn’t cleared the frost from his snout. Didn't look before crossing the cycle path. All self righteous in typical mustelid fashion. Pointing his black tipped tail about like he owned the place. But cyclists.
