    I'm sure they had a uk demo fleet at one time.. Can't find any info on that now mind..

    Sounds like your peronial tendons are strained/injured. Try using standard pedals for a few weeks, lessen mileage for a while .Seek a bike fit or podiatrist to check your gait.

    I have been told I might need surgery on my peronial tendons caused by a fall I had. Next week I get news whether or not.

    i think they should build retractable spikes into stop lines at traffic lights. Stop the idiots jumping lights and an even worse peeve of creeping forwards whilst on red until the rear wheels are past the line.

  • Planet X Viner Mitus aka Chinese FM 06631 min 2 sec agoIf it's any consolation I

    If it's any consolation I built up a Planet X RT 58 frameset recently and I've put 2000 hard miles into it so far. It probably came from the same factory as your Viner. The RT58 is well finished, it looks superb and rides like a dream and I am sure your Viner will perform likewise. There was a similar situation regarding the race on my forks but I think that this is how it should be and providing that the race is seated level/square - I carefully used a wooden drift to seat mine - you will find that the forks and head tube will fit perfectly once everything is assembled. It is absolutely important that you use a torque wrench when building up a carbon fibre frameset, but no doubt you will be aware of this .

    Driver ignorance is astounding: Road Tax, two abreast, RLJ, 'overtaking' on the inside, yada, yada.

    It looks like the DVLA is doing nothing to tackle this ignorance, the police do precious little, at least this is something.

  • Nathan LightSpur56 min 1 sec agoI've long thought

    I've long thought illumination on the shoe is the best place to be seen - you've only got to see how effective the (proper) orange reflectors are when viewed from a car.

    Moving lights are obviously more visible than static but pedal lights go beyond that; there is something about the rhythm of the moving orange reflectors which is immediately identifiable as CYCLIST.

    This sounds like a nearly product. For me, they would have to make them rechargeable, and available in orange to comply with the UK pedal reflector paradigm.

  • Newcastle campaigner says parents experience abuse while cycling with children to school1 hour 12 min agoLuckily for me, I don't have

    Luckily for me, I don't have school age children any more, and my commute only passes one school, but I understand and sympathise with people about the abuse from drivers. It is completely heinous when there's a child (or more) cycling. Driving really does strip the humanity for some.

    Below is an edited (to remove the location) of a reply from my councillor who at the time was the mayor & chair of the LA wellbeing committtee.

    Quote:
    We have terrible problems on the ... with indiscrimate parking when parents bring their children to and from school. The schools have often tried to promote cycling or walking to school, to no avail. I really don't know what else we can do, parents just don't want to know.

    It is despairing that they have no ideas and some parents are as pigheaded and selfish as they are.

  • Evoc Bike Travel Bag Pro1 hour 18 min agoPOSTSCRIPT: The EVOC bag

    POSTSCRIPT:

    The EVOC bag paired with the recently-reviewed Seasucker roof mount just might be the perfect fly-drive combo. Wheel your bike to the hire car, pull the Seasucker out from the bag, bike on roof, bag folded into boot. If you scale the car to the number in your party, I reckon you could get two, three or four people plus bags on board. That would be an impossibility with a hard case.

    I've been admiring the evoc since version 1.0, but some reviews suggest that neither the design, nor the build is spot on. They cite single-stitching, flimsiness and the mass of the bike not sitting square on the wheels - something I guess is important when pulling your luggage.

    What's your experience?
    Thanks!

    Hi Disco

    I loaded the bag to spot on the 23KG limit. The handling of the bag across sloping surfaces, cobbles, doorways, ramps etc was fine. The base of the bag is rock-solid.

    In terms of the build quality, apart from the mentioned castor wheel, I couldn't fault it.

  • Newcastle campaigner says parents experience abuse while cycling with children to school1 hour 32 min agoThe video shows one

    The video shows one questionably close pass (hard to tell with the fish eye lens) and a bus in a bad position. I don't get it. Not to mention the video is sped up which is a bit dishonest. If people on the Internet wouldn't sit through the video at the actual pace, is it any surprise that other road users would be put off?
