Emailed Anna Richardson on 31 Aug, got reply 8 Sept from Claire O'Hara, Support Officer, forwarding email 'sent on behalf of Project Manager LES'. The lock on the gate had been vandalised so it had been fixed (?somehow) shut till a replacement arrived. They've now arranged to fix in open. Or as Claire says, it may be that by the time I got the email, the repair would have been done. The gate was open today.
Claire's email says please feel free to contact Councillor Richardson if you feel she can be of any further assistance...
So what (rhetorically) has to happen so that whoever is faced with a broken something decides on a temporary fix which is least inconvenient for users?
The ball bearing trick is an act of genius! I just need to get something which breaks down OK in solvent and not let anyone near my bike with petrol....
WRT the steel setapost, I think I did that on an old bike. To be fair, one of the joys of a Ti frame is guarding against galvanic corrosion, where any disimilar metal will eventually seize and alloy with the Ti, so I could manage it with an Al seatpost too!
Police were good on 101 in the end; 10 minute call, then they called back later, so that was all fine. No one was grumpy, although, trying to explain why it was the seatpost, rather than the saddle, which was the expensive component was more than a little tricksy.
& I will be asking employer if we can find room in our incredibly cramped office if I need to take best-bike into work in future, I think...
Hi @JoeSoap76 I guess you could look at the route you will be doing and plot it out on google maps. (Using directions) When the bike icon is selected you'll get a height profile. Then look for equivalent route locally.
You may want to check out Ride 63, I hear they are a nice group and could help out. You might find some more local clubs here.
