    My left hand MT-60 crank has developed a crack. A like-for-like replacement would be ideal, but really I'm not all that fussy. If it's a square taper Shimano mountain bike crank and 175mm long I'll be happy.

    If you've got an entire crankset at a decent price I'd take the whole thing.

    Anyone know what the model name would be for a old 135mm rim-brake Hope hub?

    Sorely tempted by this, and in Bristol too, but very much do not need another bicycle. Have a bump.

    Lost the front wheel on the Bullitt this afternoon bringing daughter home.

    Number one cause of crashes on the cargo bike I would guess. Particularly given the change of grip levels depending on what load you're carrying. Front wheel is really easy to skid out with powerful brakes and no load on the front.

    We've lost a race here this season as a direct result of the sponsorship, might be set to lose more than we gain if we stick with BC.

    what alternatives are there for racing outside of BC? I know time trials and hill climbs but I'd love to still race MTB or CX

    Western Cross League is going to be exploring alternatives to British Cycling for next year. Hopefully other leagues will do the same. Looks like Beastway is also very keen to move to something else (obviously a little less contentious for a Summer League where points don't count towards anything).

    Just popping by to say 3 Peaks is pish.

    3 Peaks is such a stupid bike race that it's great.

    Epic start to my season today. Felt crap at the start of western league round 5. Was starting to get a feel for my bike when I flatted on a rock 30 min in. Not a great day at the races. Jon looked solid in 3rd. Simon Richardson cruised to the win.

    Good course but many many punctures on those rocks. Felt good for 30 minutes then terrible for 30 minutes. Probably should do some actual training.

    Anyone interested in an XL Omnium Cargo Classic (the one with the double top tube), fitted with a Bafang BBSHD? £1500.

    Based in Bristol. Seen plenty of miles but still working well.
