Re: Wanted:8/9/10 speed Shimano 700c wheels rim brakes

I have a pair of Shimano R500 with some life left in the rims. Yours for the taking. Fitted with Continental Ultra Sport tyres. 105 hubs. But you must take both.

We will meet somewhere between Kew and Burwood or wait a few more weeks to make an exchange.

Contact me via private message.

Re: Missing link in Anniversary Trail

Yes. I noticed the activity and was wondering if it was finally happening. It is right on my 5K boundary.

World Tour

The season effectively restarted on Saturday with the Strade Bianche. Didn't see or hear of much Australian representation but Mitchelton Scott were to the fore in the women's race with the winner in VanVleuten supported by Amanda Spratt and the rest. Wout VanAert won the mens race commandingly. I t...

Re: Cyclist killed in Shoreham collision

Very sad indeed. Reminds me of the case near Ballarat I think where the driver had been texting and the roads were almost deserted. I do hope that the police ask the questions and don't stuff it up like they messed the car dooring case in Glenferrie Road Hawthorn. I have not been keeping tabs but it...

Re: Spotted a forumer in your travels

Yes. I still have mine too, though I haven't worn it in the last 4 years. Something to do with accidents, incidents and surgery. My experience is that the better quality ones last very well if treated properly when washing. My standard rule for cycling kit is 30º wash temperature. And I often add an...

Re: How was your commute today

Sad that Bicycle network does not seem to acknowledge #worldbicycleday. Happily Amy Gillet foundation have chosen this day to launch a new campaign and shops in Europe have chosen today to try and sell me a whole new range of city bikes. Italy is subsidising new bike purchases and France is giving a...

Re: Strava

It all seems reasonable to me. Equally so with Cycling Tips which have hitherto provided a helpful and useful service at no tangible cost.

Re: How was your commute today

A little later than when you were ranting about. Very cold 2º but light enough. Met a pace line of commuters going toward town! And they all had lights. Of course Mr Lantern Rouge had the brightest one shining right into my eyes! I have written before about early morning runners and walkers who seem...

Re: How was your commute today

I have noticed this week an increase in the number of groups on KCT. And this morning was the greatest number yet with a few speedy serious groups.

Re: How was your mechanical fiddling today?

It's been cold and quite wet or should I say wet and quite cold. Anyway, time to break out a new set of KoolStop Salmons. My last stock I think. Are they still a thing? I am sure that I shall need replacements towards the end of the winter. Stopping power is still magic. My chain has had a charmed l...
