Mini Tour

Postby crinklystarfish » Fri Aug 17, 2018 10:00 am

Off to Alderney, Sark, Geurnsey and Herm for a few days and will be travelling by a combination of Delica, boat, bike and foot. Some days I'll be kipping in the Delica, others in a tent. Travelling mega-light and hoping to get to the quieter corners of the islands.

Have a good trip Steve

Is that a fixed wheel setup? What are the advantages if it is.

Thanks all.

It's a single freewheel, Phil, but in winter I put a different wheelset in with a proper fixed gear.

With the single speed its the simplicity and directness-of-drive that I like. Less to go wrong and all that.

With a proper fixed gear the drive is even more direct, you can brake without, err... braking, and having to rev is good for race training; it also keeps you warm in winter. You have to concentrate, though... :shock:
