    I would be more interested if they had used Kickstarter, which at least has a track record (I've funded several "bikey" projects on KS, all of which came to fruition).

    Instead, you get to pay NOW, up front, and the disclaimers took so long to read I fell asleep.

    Not this one. But good luck.

    Just a show event for the ctc et all to say "look we are doing something" when in reality nothing has changed and things have got worse.

    the fascists that are tfl will simply ignore it all over again and do what they like - which will result in more riders and pedestrians being murdered.

    Welcome to reality.

    Perhaps I'm not looking hard enough but I see no footpath - and the lane could have been blocked with construction vehicles - I smell a wind up.

  • Womens World Cup-Tour of Chongming Island50 weeks 3 days agoIt's the lack of consistency

    It's the lack of consistency that annoys me (and that I would have scored quite well). When there were problems with deadlines in the spring classics people with complaints were told to lump it and the race was scored as normal. Those who took advantage of the mistakes were even congratulated by some on the forum. Also a rider was left off the start list of the Tour of California and the stage was scored as normal.

    Please score the stage.

    It was a lovely day, and it was great to see plenty of little'ens riding their bikes along the embankment in the sunshine.

    Like a lot of people, I was riding back with a party including children and we were all being very careful to keep them safe. Thankfully, most of the traffic we encountered also showed an untypical level of patience for London, and we even had a few well wishers from the drivers.

    I bought one of these on the strength of the review and it arrived today. It's a very nice design and the spring loaded bracket is very strong.

    But I cannot get it to fit either of my bikes. On the Canyon it fouls the back of the seatpost, even when I moved the seat back 10mm. On the Bianchi there isn't enough of the level seat rails showing. It will fit on the sloping splayed section going up to the rear of the seat, but on wriggling it sprung off.

    All of which is a pity and I will be sending it back with regret for a refund. Basically, unless you have a zero setback post with the seat pushed back, this won't fit.

    Sorry you weren't able to use it but great info. I'm looking to get one but don't want to be stuck like you. Do you have any idea what the minimum exposed rail length needs to be to fit without fouling the seatpost?

    Cheers Big Grin

    i did fit it to other bikes that had layback posts and i didn't have any issues. however, i do tend to run the saddle a good way back on the rails, so missed the point that it wouldn't necessarily always fit. apologies for that Wink

    Awful decision!!

    Since Dave passed over to the forum members, the game has been shambolic ever since.

    Because I did some research and knew the start times, I'm penalised because others are moaning they missed the deadline!!


    There have been 2 or 3 mistakes in deadlines every year since the game started. None of this is anything new or anything to do with the volunteer assistants.
    Gkam is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't here. I didn't get the chance to pick a team so I prefer the neutralisation option. You did, and want to keep the points. There is no way to keep everyone happy over this. Someone will consider whatever decision is made "awful".

    Agree. Give the guys a break.

    It just saves people complaining that this rider or that rider is not in the next race when I haven't loaded the next startlist.

    The deadline was changed through the night, because it was set to 11am for some reason...so it would have just closed 20 minutes ago.....


    Be nice if Premium members got notification of Deadline changes Smile

    Come on, he was just being awkward. . I'd have let the cars pass out of courtesy!! Treat others how I wish to be treated? I have driven tractors and when a queue builds and if I can i pull over and show respect if possible to the other road users, and I do the same on my bike. It is easier to do on a bike as well. . .

    But - as the article asks: would it have made the news if it was a tractor? From the sounds of it a tractor going through that section wouldn't have had anywhere to pull in. Even if it did, but the driver was an asshole and didn't bother pulling in, would that have made the news? I highly doubt it.

    Assuming said roadworks aren't a mile long, the fact that "a hundred" cars were involved in the tailback just confirms one thing as far as I'm concerned: there are too many cars on the road.

    Typical local rag anti-cyclist dogwhistle "reporting".

  • Cyclist doing something legal in Scunthorpe makes the local paper50 weeks 3 days agoRoad lanes are not the widest

    Road lanes are not the widest I've ever seen.
    Could a cyclist and a car be accommodated side-by-side in the lane without the cyclist being endangered? No.
    Has the cyclist adopted the correct position on the road? Yes.

    Is there a footpath? Yes but it's the usual rural, tokenistic, piddling, poor surfaced excuse of a footpath.
    Would it be legal for the cyclist to use the footpath? No.
    Could a cyclist and a pedestrian be accommodated side-by-side on the path?No it is only one person wide.

    Has the cyclist done anything wrong? No.
    Was he the cause of the slow traffic? No, the road works were.
    Would this be news if it was a horse-drawn vehicle, ambulance travelling slowly with a spinal casualty on board or an electric vehicle? Of course it wouldn't.

    What can be done? How about something radical like, I don't know, possible a properly designed, installed and maintained cycle track running parallel to the dual-carriageway. Thinking Or is that too much logic for a town that doesn't even exist? Devil

    Note: Scunthorpe is under the steelworks. The town is actually Crosby and Frodingham.

    it's 2.7 miles of gentle drag up. So cars would be up there in 10 mins instead of 3 (assuming they could drive at the speed limit, which they couldn't because it's rush hour busy anyway...).

    This one's going in the scrap book! Rolling On The Floor

    Quote:

    Why didn't the cyclist just go on the path where it's safer and more considerate. They don't obey road laws anyway. They don't stop at red lights. They don't go single file, within a metre of the curb - as they are supposed to. They usually ride outside of cycle lanes. They are mostly cycling nazis and need running over to make the belligerent bell-ends realise they are a nuisance.

    Needless to say "#bloodycyclists"

  • Cyclist doing something legal in Scunthorpe makes the local paper50 weeks 3 days agoIf you don't know the width

    If you don't know the width of the road.. or the traffic conditions.. how on earth can you even start to make a judgement?

    If there's not enough space to let a car past.. then they have to wait. And better to prevent them even trying (by riding primary).
