    Reasonable £120 shoes…. nah…

    The Jamis looks decent value though yes.

    Good lord that seat angle on the Faultline… 😲

    The geo chart says it’s 74.5 degrees, and it shows being measured from the BB to the top of the seat tube. Measured to the actual saddle it must be close to 70 degrees.

    Why would owning a Go Outdoors discount card be selling my soul? Letting the kids tear around the tent showroom is worth the £5 membership alone.

    how did you put the protractor on the picture? I’m always curious about my actual bike angles, rather than the stated angles. Especially after its had a longer fork, ofseat bushing, saddle slammed forward, non standard tyre size…

    As you can imagine, it’s not foolproof or super accurate but it is helpful sometimes.

    @tall_martin, not answering the above exactly, but I use a device like this for measuring up my bike angles: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Trend-DLB-Digital-Level-Black/dp/B01HF9FJJU/ref=asc_df_B01HF9FJJU/

    I was going to ask how on earth you found that first video, but I guess now we all know what Mark gets up to at the weekend.

    That Solo book is on my Xmas list, looks good.

    that Jamis has another 15% off with a voucher code on the website.- the reality is that it’s on sale for 1340. Can’t say there’s much around that’ll compete with it at that price.

    Odd comment about the Go Outdoors card. Great value for a nominal fee and they don’t seem to be huge information collectors. I’d recommend everyone has one really.

    The charity shop DVD idea is a good one. I will try that. New thread alert, “Charity shop DVD – what have you bought?”

    I bloody hope not, current raceface 12 speed chainrings are £30.

    @a11y @tall_martin , theres an app for that. On iPhone it’s preinstalled, seach your phone for “Level”, it’s a function within the “Measure” app. I imagine there’s something similar on Android.

    @johncoventry It could become like football/baseball cards. I’ve got series 3 of The Wire – really need to find 1 and 2 now! Still looking for Running on Empty, Dark Days, and Bill & Ted’s Excellent/Bogus Adventure.

    Angles, for most windows users… just use Snippet Tool to screen grab, and then use the pen, ruler, protractor and rotate tools to markup/look
