    I know this is taking the thread down another side road, but hey, this is the 50+, and we're allowed to get a bit confused.

    I don't believe I have come across any Luddites on this forum. There are many people who are happy with, or prefer, using older technology on their bikes rather than upgrade, and that is their...

    I volunteer at a community bike workshop and neglected bikes, sometimes terminally so, are a large part of our intake. We get them from the local recycling depot, individual donations, the local...

    Not a problem as far as your safety is concerned, that's your decision as a mature adult. If you're out in the wilds then it's probably fine, but if other cyclists or walkers use the same trails or...

    Having spent years using MS and Prince PM methodology in work I was glad never again to have to be so organised when I retired. I quite like a bit of chaos in my life - except when it comes to flats....

    The only way to get age-related perspective is to get old. Your 50+ club riders will soon find out for themselves where life is going to take them.

    Over-thinking choices

    Do others spend an inordinate time over-thinking about which bike stuff to buy? I've spent ages reading comparisons of puncture-resistant road tyres, read threads on forums where people give their...

    I bought this bike as a project to rebuild as my wife said she was interested in easy rides around local parks. This hasn't worked out so I've just sold it.

    What I said about Chester also applies to Cheltenham. I believe Leisure Lakes Bikes & Cheltenham Cycles sell Genesis bikes. Have a look - you may be impressed, or not, but at least you can make an...

    I use Linux because it's cheap.
