About this deal

For finer adjustment, you can have your fingers tight or loose – that’ll give an additional range of a quarter to a third of a finger width. It didn’t end well and part of Knott Lane still lives beneath the scar on my right elbow (which I inadvertently pressed into service as a brake). The reason, as before: pressure of work and continued bad weather resulting in a serious lack of inspiration. I took a route using a lot of smaller quiet roads and felt I would take more rather than less time if I did it again. Just about every cycleway or backstreet cuts across or eventually joins a busy street or main thoroughfare.

I disagree: if you have your bars set high, not only do the bar end shifters come easily to hand, you will also find you will make more comfortable use of the lower part of the drop bar (rather than pretending to be cycling like an elite athlete) and the shifters are then even closer in reach.Most of the time, that’s not a problem, but when it’s been cold and wet, it has slipped from my hands.

In fact, it ends up being so high off the ground that you (or at least I) may need a step to get on and off the bike! which I can use when the one I’m riding fails and can be gaily thrown into a ditch, is enormously appealing but unrealistic. But then, as we all know, reliance upon common sense doesn’t necessarily stand up in court when it comes to an injuries claim!Similarly, carrying out bat activity surveys of large sites such as hospitals or colleges, is very easily accomplished by bike, given the distances that have to be covered in a relatively short amount of time.
