    [Jul 12, 2014] Dunwich Dynamo - any others riding? (London)

    I don't do many organised events but a friend has talked me into this one. It's cheap at £22 which helps and not as roadie as others. I'm going to be riding single speed with the lfgss forum mob attending.

    building a 3/16 freewheel from a screw on 7 speed

    Not exactly an ebike thing is for one of the other bikes. It started off a mountain bike and is slowly turning into an oversized bmx. Has anyone taken apart a shimano screw on thing? I have 2 that came off old bikes and plan to do the same as the guide but double up on sprockets so I can use a...

    got to see another ebike retailer at spin london

    This has to be one of the weirdest places to see an ebike retailer with a stand. The whole place was ram packed with vintage hipster junk. I got a free ticket from someone so it was ok. I didn't stop at the stall for long as I was feeling sick from all the quirky original...

    parmesan cheese in bags? wtf?

    I dunno if anyone has noticed this but I went to the shops earlier looking for the usual carboard cylinder of "grated italian hard cheese" formerly known as parmesan and found on a shelf but now in the fridge. I would usually buy the massive tub and put it in the cupboard and it lasts for ages...

    Was talking with a friend about my cycling and they asked "how comes you always seem to have bike stuff going wrong? you had that seatpost break a few weeks ago and then spokes last week and always something to do with brake pads or tyres". So I replied that I cycle lots and it's just what...

    Weird Bus Lane Rules

    So having had a near miss recently while I was in a bus lane I decided to double check the bus lane rules, for myself the rules are simple and I'm allowed to cycle in the bus lanes whenever. For cars it's mostly timed and they can pull in if a police car wants to pass or something, the full...

    I know some of you buy stuff from crazy china drop shipping places and stuff. Any idea about some cheap forks? Have some suntour suspension ones but they have rusted to bits as they are the old type that don't come apart to service them.

    Winter Bike Care?

    Usually a little before the clocks go back I would be lots more picky about my riding days and so avoid wet/rain/cold/ect as it was just easy/normal to get the bus/train. This year I got into cycling just about everywhere and have been learning lots about cycling gear for the winter, last weeks...

    I found this amazing cycle path a few days ago, it goes around the big horrible elephant and castle mess and really is one of the best cycle paths I have noticed. Also each of the roads going across it has a cycle route going to/from a different part of the city. Found more by chance than...

    branding by shop, should I get a refund?

    Ok so I got one of these delivered today. Had been faffing about with puncture repair kits in parts for ages and the other day when I needed my old kit to work the glue was bad or something. So I ordered one of these kits from lezyne and it arrived today. I flipped it over and expected as...
