    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...

    Strida - problems?

    Hi all. I'm looking for a London train-friendly bike to get me around town. Nothing fancy. Gears would be nice but I'm not sure it's absolutely necessary.

    First and foremost requirement is the...

    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)...

    It turned out to be nothing serious. Just overdoing it, and have been told not to... Obviously what happened was a pretty clear indicator that I'd been overoptimistic. But they definitely advised...

    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...

    A tyre is something that you get when you're in your thirties. A roundabout is an ingenious trapping mechanism for American drivers and also a gladiatorial ring where heavy goods vehicles joust with...

    Thanks for the (lack of ;) ) opinions everyone.


    I got two of the Pike Team and Z1 FR1's in the end, delivered along with my 'bike food' for this year. The truckload (literally) arrived on...

    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.

    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...

    What's the 'real world' front weight diference (in terms of getting the front end up and just 'feel') would you say there is between the Pike and the Z1?
