I dunno. Just tried to do reproduce the Google search that had me trip over it, but couldn't recall what I was looking for when I found it. Mid-1970's I think though... just a guess.

Hey, I'm sure I've seen something like that before...


I actually prefer mine, even if the photography ain't up to scratch.
Since I gave away my childhood bmx before my trip to the UK I'm over chrome. Those saddles are like block spitters to my nether zone. I don't do clips/straps any more. But I am fond of my brakes and the original fork and bars are in storage should I want to ressurect the original track setup.

Alright if this really turning into a Raleigh Track Porn thread, then the older Professionals wee all over the new ones

Now this is real porn ('72 Raleigh Professional)

See http://www.firstflightbikes.com/RaleighTrack.htm

or

See http://www.bikecult.com/works/collec...raleighTL.html

I should know I had one, then leant it to a friend who stacked it on the track and so now it looks like this:

cause I was too (and am) poor to get it repainted the way it used to look like.

riding from Chelmsford to Danbury on A414 a couple of weeks ago I passed a large collection of hardcore mags by the roadside. needless to say I stopped and browsed for a while. it was full on stuff, no holes barred. alas I had no capacity for carrying any of it. and I had some trouble getting back in the saddle too! I've done a few miles here and there around the country and never come across this before and was wondering if its a phenomenon limited to the bounds of Essex or whether anyone else had had similar experiences?

Something similar whilst fixed mtbing in Epping Forest. I rounded a corner to find not a pile of mags - just one...

... plus a geezer sitting there wanking over it.

He obviously wasn't too phased. The trail kind of disappeared a little further on, so I had to double back - and he was still going at it like a chimp in the zoo.

riding up the hill out of peaselake (some of you probably know where this is) on my mtb i noticed a magazine, closer inspection revealed it to be a pristine copy of transvestite today.
i didn't get past the 1st page before i had to release my grip on the sordid publication.
i left it open on the 'babe of the month' centrefold on the verge so it was clearly visible to anyone passing.

having not had any sex with my girlfriend for a while , i get a phone call that makes me want to go home early, unfortunately i work 9-5, so at 5 i tore home( from hayes in middlesex to the elephant) in a hour flat, noticed her car was not there, jumped in the shower, put on best pants( the only ones without holes) and laid on the couch in a provocative manner, only to notice a little note saying "sorry had to go to mum's"
well went to the fridge got a few beers waited for the adult channel to start ( sky is in her name ) and proceeded to wank myself silly for a few hours............erm, does that count??

bike and porn are both mentioned!

I'm ashamed to say that this reminds me of the Facebook group "I saw Philip Schofield shitting into a crisp packet by the side of the M1." It's almost worth joining facebook for.

Isn't it just a circle of card cut and zip tied (possibly even masking taped) to the wheel?

I was there when he had that cardboard wheel at bike polo. Obviously a few games later the discs were flying around the court, picked up by the wind...

funny fact: in French, Cardboard = carton. Carton wheels sounds good I think, like a spelling mistake.

Mmmm, hybrid 2 cross lacing.


I'm going for something similar on my new wheels. Supposedly the radial spokes give lateral strength and stiffness while the 2 cross supply the strength for torque. Half spokes are radial, half are 2 cross.

These ones are probably asymmetric with the radials on one side and the 2 cross on drive-train side. Can be done all on one side though, which is good if you're fixed/fixed or fixed/free.
