    Thanks for the advice. I shall look at the crank carefully then.



    Thanks and noted.

    My planned gearing is 26 to 85 gear inches. This is alright for the commuting purpose.

    Darn those things are expensive. It seems cheaper to simply buy different crank arm lengths and switch them around.

    I'm not confused but perhaps my original post was not clear.

    Basically the same crankset comes in a variety of BCDs. I just need to pick the BCD that matches my crank arms. But I don't have crank...

    I'm afraid that in my haste to post I've not been very clear. It is is my intention to purchase a crankset (not chainring). Original post corrected now.

    At present the bike has a single chainring...

    On crank arms and BCD

    I'm considering purchasing a crankset (edit) . The model I have in mind is available in BCDs of 110mm, 130mm and the 4 arm Shimano Ultegra size.

    It is my intention to perhaps experiment with a...

    All of the comments about better vehicle clearance on the road are true.

    In fact, the reason I switched to a recumbent was just for that reason - improved safety on the road. I get a lot less...

    My 3 speed Oyama. Not so compact as some other bikes, but very easy to push along on its two main wheels for considerable distances. Rolls over imperfect surfaces with no problems at all.

    Both are used for commuting purposes. The Nexus 3 began skipping a bit after the 1000km mark but...

    I second Techmoan's recommendations. His reviews are also fun to watch. I use the Mobius and SJ1000 cameras.

    Here you go:

    But even so they do expand. Even a slight expansion with the tube stuck on to something (in this case the tire cut) could've caused it to rip.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Unfortunately I had not marked the valve location on my tire. It's a good idea. I shall do it in future.

    I did not use levers during installation.

    After inserting the...

    This is a 20" 406 tyre - 1.35" I believe. Fairly good condition generally.

    The gash is about 7mm long. But since it's right through the kevlar bit, I think perhaps the region is tough. A boot may...

    I'll try the duct tape method.

    I was careful to make sure that there was no pinching. But I suppose there can be no shortage of being careful.

    Basic tire flat question

    This is a basic tire repair question. Apologies if it's been answered before.

    So I got a glass piece through my Schwalbe Kojak tire.

    I removed the glass, checked for anything left behind,...

    Ha! Yes. And there's plenty of variety out there.

    I am partial to Cruzbikes. I believe they are more power efficient on account of the FWD design. I would look into their Quest or Silvio models....

    I ride in the city without a flag.

    I can't prove it, but maybe the "too low to the ground" debate is inspired by what regular upright cyclists feel about their own visibility. I don't think that...

    A 60T chainring will give me a 26.8 to 87.7 range. Not bad. But my wheel is already built in which a IGH, so I'm trying to make use of that and avoid going rear derailleur.
