    on a weekday for the cycles would be stacked ten deep at weekends Come the sixties and my generation dispersed around the country and abroad and Brighty s was temporarily forgotten Sometime around 1970 I received a phone call suggesting that I contact Mr Brighty junior who was disposing of his father s effects which included a funny bicycle Thus did I become the owner of the late Bert Brighty s Caminargent I kept it for twenty years or more never rode it but from time to time lent it to riders with less weight and shorter legs than me so as to give it some use in suitable events Sometime during the nineties in the midst of a ten year spell of unemployment I sold it along with other machines which were too small for me to ride I am told that subsequently the machine has been altered but the pictures here show Bert s Caminargent exactly as Bert left it Every item of equipment was aluminium unsullied even by plastic handlebar tape How Bert must have longed for an alloy chain Note Constrictor original open sided tyres in the close ups Detail images of the all alloy Caminargent

    whether everything would work but most held up fine and I managed about 30km I ran a single speed 18T Moyne fw with a Durax 47T chainring and 1 8 chain It has been a long time since I have ridden a single gear and I must admit it was a challenge especially as the homeward ride was into the teeth of a very stiff westerly I was glad to find out that I had got the cotter pins set right and the cranks relatively parallel to each other The chainset was fine I decided not to have it replated yet as the budget had been long blown It was fine although it does have a degree of wobble I used Lyotard touring pedals for my widish feet with MKS clips with leather toe covers It has been many years since I rode clips and straps and it was interesting with my Sidi touring shoes without cleats pulled out a couple of times I found the B W 36H sf and Fiamme Yellow Label 26 X 1 25 clincher wheelset with Schwalbe tan side walls performed well and ironed out the bumps etc of a country road but also had higher rolling resistance than I am used to on a regular basis The front wheel was held on with GB alloy lever style wingnuts but I ended up having to use chromed steel wingnuts on the rear when one of the GBs stripped Expensive The Marsh style handlebars right were a little awkward at first I am not used to their narrowness They were quite comfortable on the shallow drops though where the bars were wider I am going to look for some other bars to try I have a pair of Reynolds Maes bars already The honking rubbers were remarkably comfortable places to rest my hands but the levers were at an angle and I couldn t depress them from the top of the levers as I usually do on other bikes A major concern is that I have still not managed to get the stem clamp bolt tightened enough and the bars rather disconsertingly rotated on me when I tried to get out of the saddle and haul on the bars I also found that the stem was too short and I knew it might be by about 2 3 which left me a bit cramped One brake lever was also fixed temporarily which was not great as the nut on the clamp had stripped and I could not get the clamp tightened I ended up using some shims to secure it I also need to redo the bar tape as it was done in a bit of a hurry in order to bring the bike down here with us I finished the whole thing off with a chromed headlamp a tail light a Carradice Junior bag with a bag loop thanks to Mark Ritz The mudguards are Bluemel Populars but a more modern set from Germany thanks
