Re: The running thread.

Just back from another run, this time with all 3 kids on their bikes. I discovered a pump track in the woods a few days ago when running, so we went to have a go. Pace set by A. Her first proper ride...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Is yours still up behind the rad? Mine used to stop working when it got too hot. So it's now located just off the side of the rad, about as far as I could get the cable to go.

Re: The All new Reeder Megathread

I think me SV is getting closer to being someone's track bike. Not mine as I'm not that good. I do however think I'll have to keep it a bit longer just to warrant the new shoes. Which I really like....

Re: The running thread.

I actually joined Relive last night before my run, only to get a message from them today that Strava no longer support them, ah well Relive account deleted.

Re: New tyre ordered.

Gave them more of a blast this morning, so far I am liking them. I need a little more time until I trust them, but that's just me. I always have a little voice in the back of my head warning me of...

Re: New tyre ordered.

Having ridden into work this morning, round tyre's are better than square ones. It'll be good to see how they compare tonight on my way home, without a 10/15 kilo tank bag fitted.
With it this...

Re: New tyre ordered.

I think you are bang on about the wheel being clamped. That was half the problem. If only ABBA had thought of that. Their bead breaker, which I have is fairly rubbish.

Mine is as it came ratio as wise. And I've basically ridden it like I stole it (helpful advice from the mechanic that last serviced it) , for the last 3 years. I find it more fun that way. As already...

Out of desperation I removed the straps and stood on the tyre at 9 and 3 o'clock whilst levering at 12.

Re: New tyre ordered.

So far I'm not liking Angel St. I just can't get the bugger on. Rear tyre on easy. Fronts a real git.

PR4s are definitely easier to fit.
