    Pedals

    Cheers gents, Will have a look at these. However, I have just changed Elaine’s Keos for mine and they seem so much easier for her, so perhaps it was the actual pedals! I’ll see how she gets on with these and have a look at the ones that have just come off (the adjustment was at the lowest setting). 🙄 Thank you both. Hope you’re both well. R😊👍🏻

    Pedals

    Hello all, Hope you are well. Elaine has never really got on well with unclipping from Look Keo Max 2 pedals, so I’m looking to get something different. I had thought of Speedplays, but am fairly out of what is good or not. Any recommendations for road pedals that are not too difficult to unclip from would be welcome. Cheers, Ramsay

    Farewell

    Davie, So sorry to hear this news. I have many fond memories of rides, trips and events with you and others in the club, and I am sure I have plenty of photos to go with many of them. Top of the Kapelmuur is attached and I will look out a few photos and send them over. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of you leaving our BBQ with Mark O’Neil a few years back….via the bush at the side of the garden and the hedge at the end. However, I’ll never forget it as it always brings a smile to my face. I hope you get onto the treatment soon and that you can get out on your gravel e-bike. Sorry it's been so long since we rode together, but if you are looking for some company around some local lanes, then I’d be more than happy to join you. Best wishes and thank you for posting. Ramsay

    Cross/gravel ebikes

    Thanks. All the bikes I’m looking at come with clearance for 40c. Have ridden my crosser with 32c for years and only recently went up to 38c, which was great....although very difficult getting the wheels on/off past the brakes!

    Cross/gravel ebikes

    Hi Chung, ......funny you should mention that. I think I have narrowed it down to the Colnago eGRV or the Wilier Jena Hybrid. The Wilier comes with a few better features, but the the Colnago looks fantastic......and it’s a Colnago. Only slight issue is that as they are gravel bikes, it would need to come with fishing gear and not Campagnolo! 🙄😱🤣 Hope all is well with you. Cheers, R

    Cross/gravel ebikes

    Thanks Jann. I have heard that a few take a bit of getting used to and are not quite “normal”. I’m looking at the Wilier (which is very similar to the Ribble and Orbea) and as you say, doesn’t have the same power as a lot of the bikes, but I’m hoping enough assist when I need and not too much weight when I don’t! Hope all is well with you. R

    Cross/gravel ebikes

    Excellent, thanks Kenny. Much appreciated. I had heard there was a minimum three month waiting list, with everyone suddenly discovering biking again. Hope all is well with you. Cheers, Ramsay
  8. Afternoon all, Has been a while. 👋 Hope everyone is well. After nearly 8 years of knee problems (with multiple re-injure, rehab, recovery......) I have decided it is time to get an ebike to help take the strain out of climbing. I’m looking at crossers (or gravel bikes as they have been re-invented as) and there are quite a few options out there. Does anyone have any experience of any e road/cross/gravel bikes? Particularly in terms of hub drive v mid-drive. Any thoughts would be welcome.....unless they are too cheeky! 😄 Ramsay P.S. - as climbing was what I used to consider my main strength on a bike, the irony of now needing a battery to help is not lost on me!! 🙄🤷‍♂️😂
  9. It appears I found the KapelMuur tough in 2011. 🤣
  10. Alan, I seem to remember this is how it finished at the top!!
  11. Ha ha! Great day out. 6 Wheelers in shot. I think I was wondering how long my domestique could keep going!
  12. Frank. Good to hear you are back. Hopefully catch up with you on the road soon. R
  13. Thanks both. We will start doing a bit more research this weekend and maybe ask a few questions. Cheers, R
  14. Martin, we will probably stay the Sunday night as well....so we can have a beer or two! 🍻
  15. Thanks Iain. We’re going to look into sapping our entry to the 174km. I know the curse has changed, but when I did it back in 2011 the first 50miles were dull and flat!
