That's knicker as in three-quarter length cycling trousers. They're a godsend for the commuter, tourer or recreational cyclist, combining a relaxed look with long-term riding comfort - when they're well designed. Bontrager's Commuting WSD Knicker looks to be just that.
So why should a cyclist own a travel towel like this Sea to Summit Pocket one? Tourists who prefer campsites and hostels to B&Bs and hotels will want a towel, as will those commuters with access to a shower at work. Travel towels are much more portable.
Hi guys, I'm riding a 3 speed sturmey on a frame with braze-ons, the hub is laced with 24 spokes. I can't remember which rim, but a reasonably priced middle of the road option - all hand built.
I've recently stolen my flatmates rack and panniers for a commuting experiment and loved it, but its just dawned on me that my low-spoke sturmey might not be strong enough!
It's only for commuting rather than touring, so no major loads, no more than a backpack. Do you think the wheel will hold up, or am I about to trash it?
Amazing! ...until you realise it's just another vehicle for the so called 'taxpayers alliance' to spread their 'message'. If you haven't, then I encourage you to google this often quoted group and see who they actually consist of.
I was commuting home through Bristol earlier today, and had just pulled off from some lights. I slowed down a bit to let a cyclist ahead of me pull around a parked car when some twat lent out of a car and hit me. My response was to shout something I won't report on the forum. Now, I'm not going to pretend it hurt, and nothing really came of it, though when I passed them at the next lights I got some grief.
Well, I suppose it had to happen eventually - 3 years commuting in London before an actual accident. Constitution Hill this morning (8 March 2011). 4WD towing an enormous JAGUAR trailer, no doubt containing one such car or maybe big cat, of course - decides to do a U-TURN - yes, a u-turn ON Constitution Hill. Having assumed it was pulling out to overtake another vehicle, I moved out, only for it to u-turn in the road.
