    Here’s a photo from the August 12th 1936 copy.
    Olympic Year and a very dark time in history.

    I’ve also got 850’ ish cycling weekly magazines from 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s.
    Not sure what to do with those 😁

    Hi
    Amongst other things I found these at the bottom of a box in Dad’s garage.
    They look pretty old and I wondered if there’s much value to them before I let them go as part of a job lot.
    Any help gratefully received
    Cheers

    Hi I have a a Tandem I’m keen to rebuild.
    I’m wondering if there’s a great/recommended wheel builder in West Sussex or as near as. I have a few hubs which are age specific but open to options to get it on the road.
    Any recommendations gratefully received.
    Cheers

    Hi all
    I’ve inherited a few of my dads old track and time trial wheels of the type where he would have cemented the tubs on the rims.
    I’m guessing these aren’t popular these days and wonder if I’d be better off breaking them down to rims and hubs and offer for sale separately. I don’t suppose the rims will be of much interest but the hubs might be useful to people doing rebuilds.
    I really don’t know what’s for the best, I’m never going to use them.
    The hubs are mostly BH Airlite’s with what I would describe as quite large flanges.
    There’s a Bayliss Wiley, a Milremo, a couple of Maillard +51 and +49 and several Campagnolo Record Hubs.
    Rims are Fiamme Red Labels, a couple of Hard Silvers, 2x Campagnolo Omega Strada, 2x Mavic Open 4CD, and 2x Wolber 27’s.
    25 wheels.
    Any advice on what to do or values gratefully received.
    Cheers
