    Thanks, and: Front Carrier ?

    I'm not sure how well it would work for you but I have a front rack that bolts to the head tube, I really like it. It doesn't turn with the bars, unlike something attached to the forks, so the steering is unaffected. Mine came from ebay, this is the same thing...

    Ebike for sale on Facebook lol

    We've had 2 new bikes from Halfords over the years. My son's had the forks the wrong way round. My wife's were the right way round but the headset wasn't tightened. She fell off outside the shop, we wheeled it straight back in. How we laughed. The biks themselves were pretty good though.

    Help needed...TSDZ2 on Carrera Vengeance. M5 bolts too short.

    Longer bolts and spacers to fill the gap - I used stainless steel washers on my bbso2, 70mm BB so 3mm to fill for me.

    e scooters - a menace?

    There's a little of chicken and egg going on at the moment. I'm 54, have a clean licence, insure a car and a motorcycle. I'd be interested in an e-scooter - and would be as sensible on one as on my bikes / in my car. But I'm not going to ride one knowing I'm an easy stop for the police for a...

    Don't forget your helmet

    The question wasn't originally addressed to you, but you chimed in. It was, as you well know, this: 'Do you wear a helmet when walking? If not, why not?' The point is that head injuries don't just happen on bicycles. If 'You never know' applies to riding a bike, why not to walking along the...

    Don't forget your helmet

    I don't believe you can't understand the point. I do believe you can't answer the question.

    Don't forget your helmet

    Do you wear a helmet when walking? If not, why not?

    Don't forget your helmet Obviously those figures include all cyclists, not just the slowcoaches. You're welcome.

    Don't forget your helmet

    Same rule for car track days. And just as relevant.

    Don't forget your helmet

    It's fairly obvious by this point that you're up for a rant rather than a discussion.

    Don't forget your helmet

    An argument for sitting on your cycle helmet?
