The rubber band on me speedo has snapped! Where would i find such a thing?

Or do i ask a passing lady to give up one of her nylons as a quick fix.

I've only had this old road bicycle five minutes and i'm upto my neck in drama! :shock:

No the speedo is about 50 years old!!

The rubber band that connects the hub to the liitle wheel on the side of the speedo has snapped.

There's a specialist rubber supplier (not a sex shop, although there are a couple further down the road) in Reading, just down from me.

If you can't source one, post the old band to me and I'll get them to find a copy.
