    Abbotsford Cycles is worthwhile but they don't sell bikes. As with all Aussie shops, prices are higher than mail order.

    I think it might be easier to reach 10,000+km of brevets if you target the longer events. This year, 2 x 1200, a 1000, 3 x 600s, 3 x 400s and the Fleche Velocio took me over 2/3s of the way and...

    Guiness are basically a pain in the (let's say neck) with cycling records. They still show Andy Wilkinson as UK E2E recordholder, despite Gethin Butler taking a chunk of time out ages ago. All such...

    No doubt Kurt will take an early lead. Steve has already posted a couple of mileage schedules on his website, taking account of expected conditions.

    Thanks for that.

    It is interesting that Steve will be starting his attempt on Jan 1st while Kurt starts a couple of day afterwards. Like having somebody sitting on your wheel for a year then...

    Thanks for that. I'm impressed that several people are tackling the record on multiple continents next year. It harks back to the 1930s when people were simultaneously competing for the record around...

    I don't do Faceache. Any other places that he is letting people know what he is doing?

    As you are comfortable, you'll be fine. The minimum speed isn't super fast

    A while back, Paris-Brest-Paris had a category for MTBs. A friend rode PBP11 on his MTB, loaded with panniers. Mind you,...

    The problem with Ken Webb's claim was that he wasn't a fast enough rider to do the daily distances he was claiming, according to a couple of his contemporaries. Steve is planning on SPOT trackers, so...

    Ken Bonner has run at least one marathon in the middle of a long brevet. Can't recall any details off the top of my head.

    I am hoping that means he doesn't want to stir the cooking pot or to do the washing up. I'm not planning on scrubbing behind his ears if he stays with us a few nights.

    My apologies, I think that one of my little foibles has been taken the wrong way. Italian, Australian, USAian. Perhaps the term American should refer to those living in a couple of continents, not...

    I have heard that a USA-ian bloke is tackling the record next year but don't know anything else. If so, it'll mirror the time between the wars when challengers competed for the record on opposite...

    A friend of mine is giving it a go and has a decent chance of doing it. Hopefully he'll have a better winter than Tommy Godwin.

    The start and (almost certainly) the bike check moves to the newly-opened National Velodrome in St Quentin-en-Yvelines, near both the railway station and the camping ground.

    Negotiations are...

    Trackstanding means I don't put a foot down at most stop signs and many traffic lights. I know I've done 100 mile races without stopping but can't be sure about anything longer. The 12hr and 24hr...

    It might be worth noting that rubber saddles are not strictly innovative, given that they were produced decades ago.

    Rolling resistance is greater with small wheels but wind resistance is somewhat reduced. For several years, my partner and I have ridden lots of brevets of between 200km and 1200 on both 406 and 622...

    The Octopus has nailed it. Both my 84hr starts (+ 2 x 90hr starts) were sub-80 finishes and you'll need to ride further and faster each day than you think, mostly because of non-riding time.

    Bike Friday should be your first choice, particularly since they are made on the same continent as you live. Airnimal would be worth a look too.

    Yes, riding with a friend from halfway round the world. Time for a change. A recumbent or something else might be the time after that - variety keeps the PBP experience fresh.

    The 84 hour start had quite tight time limits most of the way round last time. I only got significantly ahead of control closing times in the last couple of stages. I've completed 2 x 84hr starts and...

    I use multiple bikes with multiple systems - fixed, Ergopower, bar end levers and downtube levers. I can't vote for more than 1 option.
