    I'm not so sure we'll see the sub 2hr marathon very often in the future, I genuinely think we're getting close to the limits of human capability at the event. Training and sports science has advanced...

    Unfortunately, with great reluctance, I’ve had to back out, the man- flu’s got the better of me. Feeling decidedly under the weather, I wouldn’t have enjoyed the trip. Didn’t feel good last night,...

    I was never convinced by the Ďburn- iní theory, pseudo- science in my opinion. However, where something flexes or moves, such as a speaker cone or audio cartridge, there may be a period of Ď...

    Didnít know Bill Rice was no longer an authorised repairer.

    Ah, I remember them well, Wayfinders they were called. Why would you keep a compass in the heel of your shoe, a silly idea, but as a 10 yr old I wanted some and a few kids at school had them. I had...

    They are nice, Iíve got one on the bench at the moment awaiting parts, a rose- gold capped version dating from ca1962. I think they were produced from mid 50s to around 62/63. Fashions changed in...

    You need to get some wind into the spring or itíll run badly till it self- winds, if youíre going out for a 2hr walk thatís fine but if youíre more sedate youíll struggle.
