Reply to: Internet Radio advice needed.
I have a Google Home (imported from USA) and Chromecasts connected to various devices (Hifi etc), I just say “Hey Google play BBC Radio 4 to xxx” and it broacasts to the device via wifi. I also have groups setup so I can broadcast the multiple devices at the same time.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
Reply to: Why cm
I started my apprenticeship in 1973, and prefer to work in inches and thou’s eg 3/8th of an inch = 375 thou it’s just what you get used to I suppose.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
It was the same with the old pre-decimal money, 12 pence to a shilling, 20 shillings to the pound seems complicated now, but at the time it wasn’t that bad.
Reply to: Whyte T-130 C RS panic
I’ve had a lot of Whytes over the years, I appear to have 7 (not all mine) in the garage at the moment 😳 and one thing I know from experience is the warranty service is excellent if you do happen to have a problem, I’ve no idea what the Cube service is like but Whyte/ATB sales will take some beating.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
Mind, they also considered using stairs without using the handrail to be a warning offence too.
Holding the handrail is mandatory where I work and recently a group of managers and cronies tried to crack down on people walking around with their hands in their pockets due to the increased risk from “slips, trips & falls”. 😕Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
My 4 year old Whyte CX has a FSA BB386 bottom bracket, it’s done 10000 miles in some pretty tough conditions and it still going strong, so they’re not all crap.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
In fact I was looking at the bike the other day and the only original parts left are the frame, forks, BB & chainset (I’ve replaced the chainrings).
Give Garmin a ring on 0808 238 0000, they’ll give you a RMA number and they do a fixed price replacement service (about £52 as above). Usually very quick, sent it off Monday replacement arrives by Friday (but not in the case of my Dash Cam as I stupidly sent it off over the Xmas period). 🙁Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
As said above, those ring don’t look too bad at all, but could do with a clean.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
I’ve got a Mavic balaclava like this:-Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
Can’t say I’ve ever been cold enough to need it though.
Another DIYer here, I usually get one of my daughters to deal with the back and any tufty bits I miss as the wife faffs about with it too much.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post

Reply to: Diy what tool do I need?
I fitted a Nest smoke detector a few months back, it was the mains version and even so they recommend changing it every 5 or 7 years. I just screwed it to the plasterboard and nobody’s died yet.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
The screws that come with the Nest Protect are quite long.
Reply to: Best wheel bearing grease ?
I bought a tub of Shimano fluorescent green Pro-Set grease back in the 90’s and it’s still the best stuff I’ve used. I’m getting to the bottom of the tub now so I’ve recently bought a tub of Motorex Bike Grease 2000 which looks very similar and hopefully will work as well.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
I have 3 Chromecast Audio’s (kitchen radio Aux, garage radio Aux and living room HiFi) setup in a Home Group along with a Google Home I imported. I tell the Google Home what I want played and where I want it played (group or individual).Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
It works pretty well with Play Music and Tunein, but it’s early days and I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.
Reply to: Shimano Br RS785 replacement?
It’s easy to be wise after the event but I always pump the pistons out a bit more, clean around the exposed surface with a cotton bud and lubricate with a drop of shimano fluid before pushing the pistons back to fit new pads (this prevents dirt from being dragged into the seals).Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
I’ve also made a tool from a small G clamp to push the pistons back squarely.
Reply to: Car insurance…oof, that hurt…
My renewal from AA came a couple of weeks ago, £230 (it’s a very small car) I rang them and they dropped it to £180 (£10 more than last year). Close enough to the comparison sites for me not to have to bother with the hassle of changing.Posted 2 years ago | Go to post
