5 wheels on my wagon

It handles lot better with a bag of compost in the trailer - I took it to the hardware shop to collect one this afternoon

I suppose a pair of BoB Yaks are a bit overkill!

Very very nice!   I always fancied an orange one, but that looks really good in black

Mmmmmmmm. Lovely. ;D

I've got one of those  :thumbsup:

I've had Rohloff/SS dropouts fitted to it, but I don't use it much since I got my Nicolai.

How are you finding the Magura forks? They 130s? I've got RS Revelations on the Nic, but I'm not sure whether I like them...

The Peacemaker is all-white again! Barber Pole tape is gone, and the mismatched red and black tyres have been replaced.

Yes, and several of them

The trike itself is fix-able (Ian H assures me that it needs double-jointed knees) and that's a possible future project.  I used to tow the trailer on 59" fixed OK, but I have an eye to the practicality of load-hauling in the Wye Valley area...

How do you fix a trike?  Diff, one-wheel drive or two-wheel drive?

One-wheel drive. Just replace the freewheel carrier with a fixed one.

I thought that would be it.  Wonder what a two-wheel drive fixed trike would be like?

There's a whole website of my bikes - and that doesn't even show my road bikes  :-\

But I thought I'd share a photo of my Tandem with you as I recently had it out.

It's a 1937 Raleigh

Now that is a mighty fine tandem. I just love the look of old bicycles, motor bikes and cars, though I would never own one as I'm too lazy to hunt down all the bits and keep it nice and clean :)

It was a wreck when I got it, but it was fun finding all the bits at cycle jumbles etc. (before the days of t'internet!) and trying to rebuild it up to original condition. There's more about it on my webpage

sweet I know where you live , and with you out and about all day , it's a great chance to pick up a new bike :)

Though a trip over the pond and back it a bit costly at this short notice LOL

Doing the DunRun on it this year ? As then we can get to see it up close.
