The photograph question: Who can guess what is going on in the photograph below?
The photograph is of the Scott racer built by Roger Moss.  The answer is a bit tenuous but if you have one of the new BT-H magnetos you will understand it better.  These new BT-H electronic magnetos have a 6mm diameter stainless steel rod that passes through the magneto body and a radial hole in the armature that locks it in the firing position while magneto gear or sprocket is tightened.  In this instance the timing was being checked between races at Lydden.  Roger had shortened the rod to make it easier to get it into position on the Scott.  Unfortunately he let it go and  it dropped right in.  The shortened rod didn't leave a bit sticking out of the body so he couldn't just pull it out.  By turning the bike upside down the rod was eventually shaken out  Well done John Goodall and Graham Inger who made the closest guesses.
