- Things you have learned from STW forum.
Kit recommendations; places to ride when moving to a new area; route ideas generally; how to fix random stuff. The one that sticks in my mind is how to stop a Garmin 705 from turning itself off mid-ride – and I didn’t even ask the original question (thanks trail-rat).
In fact I think there’s loads that I read that other people have asked that I file away ‘just in case’.Posted 3 months agotjagainMember
In all seriousness I have learnt a lot from here. From technical stuff to peoples attitudes I never knew existed or had never come into contact with to practical advice
I also love the fact that there is a diversity of views on here and believe it or not some debates on here have brought me to different positions and I have had some great advice ( and some bizzare advice – hammering frozen sausages into my enemies lawns? )
I have ridden all over the UK with people I have met on here, some great ideas for routes
I have also been involved with one of the funniest and in some ways gratifying things I have ever done – the Gnusmobile.
So for all that – thanks. ( even to the folk I argue with)Posted 2 months agoCountZeroMember

Lionel Ritchie’s less successful follow up single.
The difficult third Oasis album
I have learned that’s there’s one man on here who’s funnier than any so-called TV comic entertainment.Posted 2 months ago
I’ve also discovered that a random driver who’s car I was doing the appraisal on can ask, apropos of nothing, “are you Count Zero?”
A Mr Turner of Leeds, if I recall correctly, last week. I was very surprised indeed!
But it was a pleasure. 😁jimmySubscriber
Don’t ask where to purchase a hard wearing pair of jeans unless you want two pages of vague abuse interspersed with some actual suggestions.
And Uniqlo never have stock. But really…

There is a little arrow on almost all fuel gauges which indicates which side of the car the filler cap is on.
To be fair, this one blew my mind. Quite literally
What??! It’s true!. Every day is school day. From this thread alone, nevermind stw generally.
That, bombers and how to remove wasps nests from lofts with a cushion.Posted 2 months agoDezBSubscriber

This knowledge almost caused a fail when taking my son’s Picanto in for petrol.. “which side is the cap?” neither of us knew – I remember the STW knowledge! I look… no arrow 🙁 There’s a pump icon, so I go with that side.. it’s the wrong side… luckily the hose reached 🙂Posted 2 months ago
