Re: Midweek and Weekend alternative rides

Camille
The DHBC Valley Wheelers (vintage steel bike arm of the club) are doing a 60km ride through parts of the Blue Mts on Sunday 26th. Pace will probably be C25s or slower. Am told a bit of climbing. You are more than welcome to join us.

Re: 'club sanctioned ride' and 'ride leader' presence

The vintage DHBC people are having a touring ride (approx 60km) this Sunday in the Blue Mts. Can the DHBC committee determine if this can be a sanctioned ride. One qualified ride leader/cycle skills coach will be present.

Found this several months back. Wonderful 1989 documentary about everything relating to the bicycle, with a special emphasis on roadies. This was made when bikes were still being made of steel, but the changeover to carbon was in the wings. All is discussed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0QjhGr73Ns

Re: Free Stuff

Free to a good home. A fully working (I checked everything and even filled the pool with water). It is an inflatable pool measuring 3.66m (width) by 0.78m (high). Comes with an electric filter (with new element), all connecting hoses and even chlorine powder. http://i909.photobucket.com/albums/ac292...

Re: Old Peugeot

Try the Cycle. Recycle place (fmr the nunnery) located in redfern.
Good idea to get ur friend to bring the bike in. Notice they are nicer if they see u are actually resurrecting an old bike. They don't charge for anything.

Creating new segments on Strava

I (properly) started on Strava a few weeks ago and love it.
However I'd like to map out my own runs, or 'segments'. There seems to be a lack of them west of Dulwich Hill. My question is this; do I have to be a paid up member in order to do this?

Re: Council verge find

It's a bit of a strange find. Tyres were hardly used but obviously quite old judging by the minor crazing on the side walls. The chain was stiff and the whole drivetrain seized up. Rear wheel out of true and caught on brake pad. Cleaned that up easy. Don't think the bike has been used that much. Pro...

Re: Council verge find

Previous owner: very thirsty.

Nothing much to do apart from replace the rear wheel inner tube, some quick and rough rear wheel truing and some clean up and greasing. Although it is relatively heavy, probably around 11-12kg, it rides really well.

Council verge find

This is my first find. Not a super great find but good anyway. I am lucky because it is a large frame; 62cm, so will fit me reasonably well. Tubing is Columbus Tretubi Cromor. Seat post is under 27mm, assume it is 26.8mm. Shimano 105 throughout, respectable. http://i909.photobucket.com/albums/ac292/...
