    Cycle helmet wearers are reckless

I would have had to have been god himself to have predicted the accident, irrespective of how much no claims I might have it was unavoidable on my behalf. I know we are...

    Schwalbe Snow Stud Tyre Problem

    Just curious, doesn't fitting studded snow tires when there is no snow not cause a problem on tarmac? I would have thought like car snow tires they are worse than standard tires when there is no snow?

    Bit late sorry but here are some photos of tyres fitted. Not sure about the white walling:cool: but huge difference in the way the bike rides. Took a while to come though:mad:

    I have also been impressed with the Aldi gloves, they do not really seem that thick so was not expecting much, but they are waterproof and do a good job of keeping the cold at bay. The Gel inserts seem to make the ride a little more comfortable as well. I cannot remember exactly now but i am...

    Continental Contact Security 08 - £14.99

    Hi Just had my 7th puncture in 700 miles and now had enough? The tyre is very difficult to get off the back rim for some reason and to make matters worse I was 5 miles from home and my pump didn't work. Gave up and called in the rescue brigade (girlfriends mum and dad) to come and collect me...

    Back wheel wobble

    My bike had a wobble in the back wheel but on closer examination it was only in the tyre. Changed the tyre and the problem went away. I think I may have previously put the wrong size tube in though:eek: and distorted the tyre in some way.

    where can i get bike insurance

    Swinton have just charged me £18.50 to ensure my paratrooper equiped with Heinzmann kit for £1200 (I never bother to ensure to the full value with the battery as I would never leave it on the bike. There are no conditions to this that I can see and I have the spec of the bike written into the...
