Snowflakes – just applies to anyone offended by anything. Doesn’t matter the generation. It’s just the modern attitude that absolutely everything could be offensive and judgement should be made by social media (they did an episode of The Orville based on that).
Anyway, Gen X so I get to moan at old and young. Though mostly just moan at myself at…[Read more]
Copper grease on BB threads as they get super tight and seize on. SRAM at least advise grease, but I prefer copper grease.
Cassette lock ring, copper grease and torque to spec.
Cranks, bearings, headsets and just about anything else that needs regular grease, then marine grease.
Hub internals (pawls, ratchets etc), light bit of oil. Some may…[Read more]
deadkenny replied to the topic New to the Surrey Hills – does anyone have a good route I can load into komoot? in the forum Bike Forum 3 days ago
Surrey Hills isn’t a place for doing ‘loops’ – spiders webs, maybe 🤣
You can do loops. Just they can be a bit epic. Unless it’s loops sessioning some downhills, then most likely it’s loops around Pitch Hill.
What do you load those route maps onto? Do you get directions like a sat nav even when off road?
Depends on the device and whether the rou…[Read more]
Stock GXP Team. Last me a good few years these days and cheap at £20-30.
Never see why people have problems unless they’re not tightening the crank bolt enough.
Though I still also put an o-ring on the drive side in the space between crank face and the dust cap, but they seem to stay in place better now.
Anyone from this year got their carried over tickets yet?
Last email I had said we’d get print at home tickets on 1st Nov automatically by email.
Annoyingly to change team name, had to be done by then also and a) forgot, b) got no idea who I’m riding with yet if anyone. Probably won’t until month or two before.
Local-ish to me. I’ve probably seen him on the road and not paid much attention and just thought “some old guy on a bike”.
That’s an average of just under 15,000 miles per year for 67 years!!
I’ve only done 15,000 over the last 10 years!
Off road though and that’s from GPS stats where I wasn’t tracking so much in the first few of those 1…[Read more]
Following his story on FB last few years and thought although it was a tragic event he shows great courage and a positive attitude. Made me think if I, a friend or family member was in the same situation, there may still be hope for a future.
Then I read this yesterday and it hits home how hard it really has been. Was a hard thing to read and can…[Read more]
Have used carbon bars for years and never worry about clamping stuff to the bars. Lights are no different.
I use carbon paste for proper clamps. A rubber band attachment, wouldn’t worry at all.
My Four4th light has proper clamp for light and battery. I do it up fairly secure else it can slip on a ride. Not a scratch on the bar and doesn’t worry…[Read more]
Is the driver down the bottom just regular driving or sports related?
If the former, I’d place him right way above most activities there. Though the percentages based on 1000 hours seem a bit iffy.
Whats the definition of downhill you are using, and what would qualify? It might not be suitable for a national or international DH race, but it’s u…
You must be the only person in the world moving out of Euros and in to Sterling!.:-)
Rate is good for Euro to Pound. Depends when / how you got the Euros though and whether you’ll transfer back in the future.
Got a pile of travel cash from years ago and worth a lot more in £ now than when I bought them, so may cash it back. Though if I’m going…[Read more]

I read that as way more pedestrians than cab drivers are killed and maimed, by cyclists 😄
Other than the skills area for the Hub near The Lookout, only work I know of is in tidying up and reworking existing trails around Labyrinth area, and Camel Run etc will get a make over I believe. That area being adopted officially.
Other than that there’s a bunch of logging going on.
Issue I’ve had with Spotify is I’m a whole album guy, I don’t really do random tracks or playlists from this and that, and I find due to rights issues sometimes one or two tracks on an album are missing because of who they’re credited to.
Though mostly I still buy CDs, rip to FLAC and stream from my NAS (and for good enough for phone, MP3…[Read more]
May have to pay more money to the artists perhaps, and they’d rather pay as little as possible.
There may be reluctance from studios with HD lossless formats if they’re not DRM protected. So offline downloads may need to be protected from copying. Not sure what Spotify do there. Even with streaming it’s probably a limited market given the vast…[Read more]
If some see the emoji (to give them the correct name) but some see squares or blank space, then it’s generally down to font support on the browser and/or OS.
Forum shortcuts where you put the text equivelant will convert to the relevant character, though some forums use their own icons for them. Emojis from your computer / phone get inserted as…[Read more]
