Re: Le Tour Viewing Question

We went a few years ago and followed the tour mainly around the alps. For the mountain stages, you won't get a spot on or near the summit unless you camp out days in advance. We stayed in St Jean de Maurienne and drove to the start of the climbs early in the morning to get a good spot. Or went to th...

No way, snow is already all but gone.
Forecast temp up there is well above 0°C.
Don't worry, winter has just started.

When I said to my wife that I was going to make a car out of spaghetti, she ridiculed me and laughed out load.

Re: Bicycle Network could lead this initiative

https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/newsroom/2019/02/28/fork-fail-leads-to-death/ But racing and training cyclist are not Bicycle Network favourite people, and never have been. That's a good point.

Re: How to reduce play in new jockey wheel

As far as I know, on Shimano derailleurs the bottom jockey wheel is supposed to have lateral movement.
The top one can have a bit, not sure how much. Mine does, last time I cleaned them.
Google it, there's loads of info on this online.

Re: How was your mechanical fiddling today?

Over Christmas my second eldest son got a new bike, so his old Giant Boulder goes to my youngest son. It has had a useful life, so it was worth spending some money on it. I had previously purchased a chain, rear derailluer, some cables and grips. So some fiddling in the garage over the break resurr...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

But then you don't have to organise the infrastructure, logistics, traffic management, police costs, etc. for 5,000 people. BN don't make any money on this, some years they lose money. It is still a great experience in my opinion. Disagree. The rides provide a lot of revenue for BN to use for their...

Re: Great Victorian Bike Ride 2019

Basic ride fee for an adult is $1,149. = $114.90 per day. However if you want to park your car in a secure car park at the finish in Torquay and be transported with your bike to the start that will be $1,499. A self supporting couple like my wife and I can tour staying in caravan park cabins and mo...
