Re: ainsworth cranked carbon paddle

I'm 6.4" and a st...

Re: Food for thought for GoPro helmet users

Now I'm no scientist but I'm guessing a rock is a fairly solid object and twatting one of them at 20+ miles an hour with a ...

Re: Octavia roof rack wanted

you have the slots above each door. pop the plastic out and there's the steel the bars lock to. I had to hunt as the adverts are for rail fitting bars. they're out there.... somewhere. expect to pay 40 upwards.
I have a spare pair of bmw 316 bars but the fitting kits are totally different.
