Re: Short reach/Short drop handlebars

I have these on my Amira, Specialized Women's Expert, shallow drop, alloy, 123mm drop, 75mm reach. I really like them. They are around £35 list price. Also available in carbon for £160. Widths available are narrower than men's ones.

Re: Injured now with pics!

I had 3 operations on my broken leg and each time when they consented me, they got out the big black permanent marker and drew a big arrow to the injury. It is meant to reduce errors.

Boys, next time I have to stop to peace keep between 2 cyclists, I will be giving out lines.
You made me late and ruined my calm, enjoyable start to the day.

Re: Best favourite snacks on the bike

I use dried mangos, nuts, bananas and cereal bars. with gels for emergency or end of ride use.

Seems to work for me, I personally prefer "real" food to gels for as long as I can manage.

Re: Women's bike - design fault?

I have this issue on my road bike, as it has a sloping top tube and I am a dwarf, I can't fit a full 750ml bottle into one of the cages. I use a specialized side loading bottle cage and it helps. I can easily fit in a 500ml bottle and some 600ml ones. On one of my bikes, they didn't even have pre dr...

Re: Difference in leg length after Bicycle fall/crash

I would agree go to a good physio/osteopath. One that has good biomechanics background initially.. I broke my leg and was really struggling with walking afterward the break had healed fully. I had a few visits over a 3-6 month period, which ironed out all my issues. I also found a good sports massag...

Re: Silly commuting racing

I can't argue with you about that care definitely required.

I think it looked so odd as I had ridden through the estate and came out opposite the site.... and there was no cars other than a police car and ambulance around, so you really had no idea what had happened.

Re: Silly commuting racing

The accident site was actually appeared to be up Priory lane, around the Arabella Drive and Woking Close junction or at least that is where they had actually cordoned off the area and the ambulance and cars were. It is also where the helmet, rucksack, clothes and blood were on the uphill side of the...

Re: Silly commuting racing

Yes, a hit and run would explain why only ambulance, police and one cyclist were around the incident area. No evidence of another vehicle at all.

Hope the rider heals up quick and the police find whoever was involved.

Re: Silly commuting racing

Priory Lane closed off at the URR junction. Bike, scooter, car? Anyone know what happened? I came through just after 7 this morning and the road was closed off. They weren't letting bikes through, so rode through estate on the left and came out opposite the site of the accident. It looked like a bi...

We had a similar thing with our neighbour, he was born in his house and died a few years ago in his 90's. An ideal neighbour and lovely old guy, had some great stories about the war. As soon as he died his nephews( who never visited him) sold it straight away. It was bought by a developer who was ho...

Re: I'm a cycling novice, any advice welcome!

My no1 piece of advice to begin with is always to enjoy yourself. If you come back from a ride happy, you will want to go again. I think the technicla stuff has been covered, make sure your bike fits you, get the basics of shorts etc. Make sure you know how to change/repair a puncture and have the b...

Re: Your rants here.

Downhill overtakes don't count in SCR. No way Jose. Where does it say that in the rules? If you feel you have to take a breather on the downhill to recover that's your problem..... It is not the downhill overtake I object to... it is the the fact that some riders feel the need to run red lights to ...
