Brought in Eisel and Pate today, as they were the only THR riders I could afford, and I reckon CAVs going to win - so they'll get 5 pts each.
Some may think I am being a little contradictory when I seem to slag off CAV all the time, but to be honest, I have a soft spot for all the British riders including CAV.
So, Go THR today, and may SKY come second !

Of course, if the non-biking passengers would observe the priority due to bikes in the storage area, and not use the fold-down seats there when there are plenty of other seats around them, there might be less need for Bromptons, or indeed non-folding bikes, to block up other parts of the train!

Or serious about getting about by bike - not all regular cyclists are 'green'. Lots of cyclists have panniers.
I've not seen a trailer like this, only Y-frame and BoB type, and would be conscious of its size in traffic. I wouldn't mind giving one a try.

You simply didn't screw the extractor in enough - probably.
If it's a sealed bottom bracket you're in trouble, and the only way you'll get them off if you really want to save them is to borrow a small automotive type crank puller.
If however it's an old style bottom bracket with cups and lockring it's not a big problem. Assuming you've not threaded both cranks?
With these loosen the lock ring, then loosen one of the bearing cups. now the axle will be moveable even if it's just a few milimetres. Pack something like cone spanners betwen the cranks and the cups. Then using something as a drift tap the axle once and the crank will just fall off.
Hope that makes sense. I have to do that with a nice 1940s race chainset I have.

I love these tyres, pretty quick and virtually indestructable.
I don't think you have been lucky with punctures Dave, I have put thousands of miles on these tyres and not had a single puncture (mind you - maybe I have been lucky!!?)
Last time I bought them for less than £20 each from a certain Preston based internet seller and for that price they are brilliant.
