I've got an old steel road but the rear wheel is pretty much gone. No one here happens to have any six speed wheels in good condition lying about they'd be willing to donate or sell to me?Continue

"So, to the two David's... I'm going to try an afternoon version of the ride we did today. Leaving town at four... probably getting home about 6:30. If it goes OK, that might be an alternative for next week? "

"Another off road commute for me. This time with even less on road! This route is about 35-40k, and probably nearly 30 of it is either off road entirely or on a bike path. "

"In my opinion, the ideal fix would be to close Radnor Street to through traffic, by placing bollards where it changes to Witton Road. It would then be a "quietway" that allows people who live on that road to still use it, but bikes would…"

"Another close pass on Elliott Rd at Banyo this morning. No reason, nothing coming the other way, just another obese baby boomer in his massive 4WD who then proceeds to drive along within inches of me to berate me for not riding in the gutter."

"World's biggest bollard? should be a landmark on every cycle-tourist's itinerary. Cameron  I'm not sure where you would put a Radnor Street bikeway,  maybe 3 meters above the road or cantilevered over the river?"

"Sounds good.. let me know.  I think it's more of a MTB ride but if you want to try it on your CX bike I'd be keen to watch. I'll get my fly12 mounted. :o Mind you not that there is anything really that bad or technical. "

Hey Daz, here is the link to the pannier collection - that top one looks like nice colours but not as big as my big red ones - which are also available in royal blue.
