Reply to: To me… RIP Barry Chuckle
Sad news. Seen them twice in Derby at the Assembly Rooms with my kids years ago. Star Wars and Indiana Jones spoofs. Great laughs. Watching Fathers nudge their kids out of the way shouting ‘…to me!!!’ as Barry Chuckle came up the isle with a bucket of foam. It was a bucket list ticked! 🙂Posted 1 year ago | Go to post

Don’t know what these are like but worth a punt? Only 4 quid. Apparently the original site where the files were uploaded to is now defunct, but you can use google earth…..Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
Reply to: Tissington and High Peak trail
I’ve done a nice route similar to yours Robbo……..Northbound A6 from Derby to Ambergate, then turn right after the Hurt Arms pub under the bridge to follow the canal path to Cromford. Turn left at Cromford to go under the bridge (a6) and follow the high peak trail to the fork that meets with the Tissington Trail. carry on northbound to Parsley Hay Bike hire for a refuel. Turn back and then fork right at the junction for Tissington Trail back to Ashbourne then follow the roads back through Ashbourne…Hulland Ward/Mercaston/Weston Underwood etc to Derby…
Very simple route.Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
Reply to: KS Lev Integra won’t drop
is this gonna help though if the cable is still working i.e. activating the thing at the bottom of the post?
Not sure as I don’t have your model, but the KS lever was as stiff as a board and was no longer holding the post. The old cable was still moving at the business end of the post.
Not got it clamped too tight in the frame?Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
Reply to: KS Lev Integra won’t drop
I’ve got the non integra Lev. Try a new outer and inner gear cable (assuming it uses one?) I just bought one of the clarks gear cable set for around 7 quid from Halfords and fitted. Cleaned and greased back plate and lever and lubed new inner cable with GT85. Works a treat now. It was so stiff with the original race cable, now like new. 3 years old, never serviced other than lubing the stanchion after rides. Bought used!

Bespoke. Another bullsh1t phrase to elevate something into stratospheric meta.

If its any use I have swapped 2 Tacx T2240 at Halfords after the bearing noise creaked at startup and I just got used to it. I couldn’t be arsed to return it for the 3rd time. Seems to be the norm with some of the Tacx range. I’ve just continued to use it without problem. You’re lucky its done 8k before the noise. Mine have been after 30 miles or so!Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
I got one from Start Fitness last year. They were excellent to deal with and the bike feels great to ride (moved from a Warbird) The stock tyres have zero puncture protection (prob manufactured from a throbbing Gnats foreskin).Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
What about the VN Revelstoke? I know its not suspension but still using the Lefty design.

Reply to: Calling all Cannondale Slate owners..
I’ve got the Green 105 one and so far its great. As others have testified the stock tyres aren’t great. I’ve only had it for a few months. My rear punctured on the 3rd ride so going to go tubeless soon. Only done half a dozen rides so far, but so far so good. Compared to my old Salsa Warbird it replaced it feels quite light considering the carbon lefty attached.
I don’t see the point of the rigid lefty, as you are tied into Cannondales hub choice then for no real benefit from a standard carbon fork. I’m happy to be corrected on that though.
Large frame 5’10” 32″ inside leg.
Rolls suprisingly well. The lockout on the oliver works well and just the right amount of suspension.
Yeah I like it.
Cheers.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
