Thanks. I must admit the Bromptons bore me. And as old and (these days) round as I am, there is an image issue. Trundling along on a Brompton isn't quite the funky designer/tech-guy thing. The Birdys...

I had my bike attached to a bicycle rack just beside the frontage of a bicycle shop with a low-end cable lock. I'd forgotten the u-lock and had popped in to the shop to pick out a more-than-temporary...

I don't know how the pads are arranged, but the squeal is usually caused by the movement of the pads. You could try putting motorbike anti-squeal compound behind the pads (not on the rotor-facing...

Male or female, the squeal of the Hope and the clunk of the downshift to overtake constitutes my bell :p

What I take:

Lock (Abus, not Kryptonite)
Multi-tool + park chain tool + spare links (and these days I always check I got the chain parts as I seem to always drop a chain when I don't have these)...

Holy Crap, I had a scare today.

I didn't realise just how totally out of shape I was. I haven't ridden at all since perhaps October last year, but even before then my 'riding' was not exactly frequent. I've been pretty fit since my...

I worked up to DH from XC, so I used to ride DH with a PD-M636 when they first came out... A much better way to compete IMO. I didn't really see the attraction of BMX-style pedals for hardcore riding...

Throughout the day I will have nowhere to change, and don't want to lug around extra clothing. The underpants are already sorted out... I have lots of liner shorts.


Oh yes this may be relevant...

Bike wear suitable for all day wear

I'm not biking around at the moment, and I'm planning to do so soon. My journey is fairly low-mileage and it's mainly about getting from site A to site B at various times during the day... nothing...
