  • I have a play5 and 1, was not pleased to read about this, as they were expensive items (for us) to buy. Our ageing surround sound system (10+ years old) works fine but I want to replace with somethingmore modern and I’ve been trying to justify the huge cost of a sonos system (bar, sub, play1s). Will not being doing that now, if I fork out for…[Read more]

    I have to wear orthotics if I want to run, else I get terrible blisters on the inner arches of my feet, I have tried loads of different types of trainer. I’m currently on brookes beast with the orthotics and it is the first time I can run without blisters and…[Read more]

  • very happy with our sportage. has the crappy 1.6 petrol engine, but for the vast majority of our driving (city commutes) it’s fine

    oo just looked at my old motor sold on 2 years ago. Looks like its dead 🙁

    god knows what they’ve done to it
    Do not drive until repaired (dangerous defects):
    Nearside Front Tyre has ply or cords exposed (5.2.3 (d) (ii))
    Offside Rear Wheel bearing play so excessive it is likely to break up (5.1.3 (a) (ii))
    Repair immediately (major…[Read more]

    I hope you claimed that £5k back from the solicitors insurance.

    My solicitor missed a loop hole in the stamp duty we paid, which another firm mentioned, and were happy to represent on a no win no fee. Mentioned to the original solicitor who couldn’t have been more helpful to resolve (as they knew they were going to be sued and there was good…[Read more]

    Well I’m impressed

    I had all sorts of interesting stuff on my deeds too, like not being allowed to make bricks, distil spirits or have a circus on the land. Which was a tiny 2 up 2 down terrace.

    We had a peppercorn rent on our old house – £1 per year for a 999 year lease set up in 1902, which when the previous owner of the freehold died hadn’t been collected for several years.

    Caused lots of issues when we sold, and apparently put lots of buyers off.

    They should just get rid of these antiquated rents, they might have made sense…[Read more]

    did you sand back to the lead layer or just key the surface for painting? if so you probably didn’t even get to the lead paint unless you stripped the lot

  • That’s useful info, https://kidsandfamilycycles.co.uk/Yuba-Mundo-Classic.html localish to me too down in Christchurch.

    No mention of c2w though.

    Nixie, possibly frameset is am option. I’ll have a donor 26 it will be replacing. Limiting factor will be finding someone who will take a Halfords c2w voucher for a surly frameset. Then it looks lik…[Read more]

  • thanks for your views on the kona.

    there seem to be several warning threads online about the tern frame snapping which has put me off alot.

    xtracycle kit does not appear to be for sale in the uk. unless you know where? I’m not up for faffing about with importing and charges especially with gbp on its knees.

    so that leaves a surly….but they…[Read more]

  • despite really wanting a surly I will prob end up with a ute due to c2w lkmits. it seems there are lots of negative comments about them bring flexy. any ridden a 2020 with 650 wheels?

    those with monkey bars what age are your kids using them instead of a proper seat? and anyone know what ones fit a ute? do the adjustable yuba ones fit?

  • I’m looking into this for,my next c2w. From my research so far via c2w options appear to be a KONA ute, surly big dummy or tern node cargo

  • ok that’s useful to know, and that he limit is 2k. have they ditched the restrictions on the components you can use the voucher on? I wasnt allowed to use it for a groupset or wheels last time, even though they are consumable items on a commuter bike….

  • I’ve heard they maybe following the example of the GCI and getting a consumer credit license so they can offer over 1k.

    Anyone close to this and can confirm / deny?

    Or have a phone number for halfords C2W – can’t seem to find one

    for my wife’s second c section they accidentally lowered the screen too much. I nearly passed out, looked at the floor and saw a big drop of blood land on the floor. I had my wife, who had her tummy opened up asking me if I was okay…as I’d gone completely white.

    forgotten that little memory!

    well my 4year old told me he was getting married when I picked him up from school. much chuckling. made a shit day better.

    what is your age, or more importantly your wifes age?

    this is important as you may find there are certain rules around fertility treatment for your area. So if stuff doesn’t go to plan you need to know how quickly you should be engaging help from the NHS.

    We nearly missed the boat and had to pay (a lot) for IVF because my wife had just turned…[Read more]
