    I am selling a complete Tony Greening track bike ridden on track and on route to track only. I hope the new owner will have more opportunity to use it more. The Columbus MAX tubeset is super light, stiff and responsive and really beautiful.

    There is also a minor dent to top-tube due to bar swing.

    Forcing myself to use the motorbike for journeys I would usually use my bicycle on ie. pretty much all of them, is helping a lot, I feel like I’m working things out better each time I go out.

    I’m considering leaving London for the first time next weekend to visit a friend in Cambridgeshire, does anyone have any advice?

    Hi All,

    Thanks for previous advice,

    I am now up and running and enjoying myself. I am still a little nervous mainly due to my inexperience which makes it difficult when a problem comes up to know whether it’s down to my technique/behaviour or the bike – usually its me.

    My current problem: back tyre pressure low, I just tried to inflate it for the second time using the auto air pump at the local petrol station. Cant get it to work, there’s not much to do so I don’t understand what’s going wrong. It works on the front tire but on the back nothing seems to happen, the car driver in the queue behind me couldn’t see anything wrong with what I was doing.

    Any ideas? I guess I can try a pump at another station, might there be a problem with the valve?
