  1. Aldi or Lidl Bike Gear now available - any good?

    Has anyone bought bike gear from Aldi or Lidl? I nipped down to Lidl today as they have gloves, thermals and flip-up lids in stock. I got some gloves at £17, seem OK, a bit of armor on the knuckles but they claim to be water and wind proof should be handy (geddit?, see what I did there?)...
  2. Halvarrsons Jackets or other reccomendations

    My old Heine Gericke jacket and trousis combo is on it's last legs but six years is not so bad.

Halvarrsons have a good reputation, I have a budget up to say £500 for...

  6. Hybrid Africa Twin on eBay!!!

    Africa Twin
    There's an RD07a looking AT on eBay at the moment registered an as RD03!! Is it me but it all sounds a bit dodgy to me, even the RD07a frame has the RD03 frame plate on it. It may have Ohlins shock but the claim that it's possibly the best ever AT to be on eBay sounds way off...unless anyone on...
  7. who has heard of

    Now I'm a skeptical old git, especially about charities (many of which spin a tale about something genuinely tragic to get your cash, and then spend much of it on some dodgy political lobbying they never told you about...) but look interesting. There's waffle on the web site but here's...
  8. Has anyone used

    Mechanical Advice
    Evening all. Have been looking for an airfilter for my old 250 and these chaps DIY Spare Parts claim to have one (which Silver's and Wemoto don't). Apparently they operate out of Bristol but something about the site doesn't feel quite right. Has anyone had any experience of them? Thanks Giles

  17. Value for insurance claim ?

    How do you think is the best way to value a 2000 RD07A and justify that value to an insurance co. ? Following my weekend mishap, the consensus is that the bike will be written off. I have not yet approached the insurance co. but know they pay out as little al poss. It needs at least a front...
