    303698

    It's a the frame, forks and seat-post from a Thorn Audax MK3 with the Ultegra SL groupset from my previous bike. As a result I tend to call it the "Frankenthorn!"; :)

    My first 'bent was a SWB and had space for 4 rear panniers (2 actually at the rear, 2 under the seat) plus the top of the rear rack available. I'm struggling to see (a) where a LWB gets more space...

    IIRC, there was some video footage around of a Catrike (Catbike?) Musashi being ridden with no hands?

    3 bikes? I'm guessing you must have caught one of the diesel services then? (Complete with the bikes spaces inconveniently located at the far end of the platform!) The electric services up the...

    As for "must see"? Well it depends upon what you're interested in! Suggestions off the top of my head would be Hadrian's Wall, the Falkirk Wheel and the former Royal Yacht Britannia ...

    I'd vote for the Topeak range myself too ... Though I'd say the choice is easier to make if you've already a got a Topeak rack to fit it on, and can thus use the slide-in/out versions.

    15-20 minutes ... After that the time savings through cycling more than offset the loss of time required to unlock/lock the bike at the ends of the journey.

    Yeah ... IMHO even if you are going to base your opinions on someone else's gear, then surely the thought train is "that person has Ortlieb panniers => that person buys quality gear"?

    You might find the postage from the UK is a bit steep though. When I was living in Austria I was quoted ~€285 for getting a new Thorn Audax Mk3 delivered from the UK .
