Re: closing national parks, and imposing fines?

I'm doubtful there is a legal means to do so, I can't imagine it would be enforceable and sceptical that it's necessary or worthwhile. I think a lot of car park closing is knee jerk reaction and possibly / probably unnecessary. I wouldn't know about bigger cities but locally (Leeds outskirts) I pond...

Re: WTD Hope XC front hub 15mm adapters

I think I have a BNIB Hope hub if that might be of interest?2

Edit - looking through ancient posts the details are - Red Hope Pro2 front hub, standard QR caps / spacing. Brand new and boxed. £40 posted.

Happy to discuss price and fitting to meet your needs.

Re: If we close up for a bit...

Yep, the silence is almost palpable at times. It's a nice by-product (like the lower air pollution etc) of the shutdown. Though of course the whole situation is rather grim.

Re: Broken road riders, assistance please

I'm sure there's probably a good reason but, if it was new etc etc, have you considered contacting Alpkit about replacement or possible remedy? I had a vaguely similar issue with a Titus Fireline. Even clamped up to hold the post at height you could "waggle" it and feel a knocking. Took it back and ...

Re: Feckin Lezyne Pumps

I bought an Airace Mini Veloce after my Lezyne did the same thing to me and forced me to walk half my commute to get home a few years ago. The Airace has a little hose with a thumb lock to attach to the valve so you get the best of both worlds. My Google.fu is failing me, where did you get that fro...

Re: What mini pump?

I splurged for the one Jameso recommended on the other Lezyne thread. I like my Lezynes as they seem well made and compact (handy when using a wing nut that is "squarer" than a camelbak). Will see how it goes. I was amazed how expensive some pumps were (£50++) and really cant rationalise.carrying so...

It's ironic as I was reading a post by Stu poking fun at Lezyne's tendency to do this and thought "never happens to me, what's the big deal?". Got home and used an aged but still excellent Blackburn Mountain Morph, trouble is that it's a bit too big for my Wingnut. So what clamp-ons (edit - shorter ...

Feckin Lezyne Pumps

My once a day exercise today was to be a ride. I missed doing anything yesterday due to various family stuff so was needing the leg stretch. Barely 15 minutes in and my shittin' lezyne pump, that's been perfectly fine for donkeys, decides to repeatedly remove the valve core on my front wheel. Much p...

Some lovely shots. Keep them coming folks. please :-bd Went out for a run last night. It was sub standard, I was puffing like some knackered thing and there was no way I was in a state to enjoy the countryside / view. Well, not until I gave up and walked / stretched but it was dark by then :roll:
