Re: Help me with my creak

Quick smear of grease behind it and job done. Another turned out to be the pin that stops the chain wedging between the ring and crank arm...

Re: Straightening A Silwing Ridgeline?

I bought 1 years ago in a sale and never used it in anger for that very reason Ray. Loved the shape but really didn't like the dip in the middle so it ended up at the back of the 'might come in handy but probably won't cupboard'. :roll:

All the Ospreys will have buggered off back to Africa now i think. They usually leave by mid Sept. The Dyfi pair should be back mid to late april iirc. Watched Monty the male fishing behind the Cob a few years back a week after he'd arrived back.
