    So just as an update, I went for the following: 16GB RAM upgrade. I then went for the external SSD option (running off thunderbolt, so it is quicker than old USB); I know an internal SSD would have been quicker, but thought that option would stop be from re-using the external SSD in the future on another computer, if I upgraded.

    Seems to run…[Read more]

    Put proper winter rubber on both bikes (Specialized Hilbilly on the hardtail and Maxxis Shorty on the full suss).

    Also fitted a riser bar to my full suspension bike; have no logical reason for doing that in winter, but I had a day off and just was in the mood.

  • I have a V2 210mm post. Really pleased with it. But… I should have topped it up with air prior to fitting. Once up to the correct pressure, worked well. I have lubed up the plastic bushing around the neck of the post.

    Bit of a funny whine/squeek coming from it when going up or down, which i have not sorted yet. Does not seem to affect the…[Read more]

    Thanks Jason. I am going to take it slow. I will cost up all the various options above and then in the mean time try and get some footage to have a play with.

    Appreciate all the suggestions; some good ideas.

    Well, it seems like there is a big(ish), but relatively simple decision I need to make; sell my Mac Mini seems a given, but chosing the replacement not so simple. I have heard about people just using an Ipad to edit stuff, but mine is only a 32GB IPad mini 2 I think, so again perhaps old hat.

    Could I sell off my Mac Mini, then just get a better…[Read more]

    Thanks all for the help. The graphics card is integrated and I think totally kak for anything of use. I think it is Intel HD Graphics 4000.

    Not sure if it is, or isn’t worth spending the money on the machine, or elsewhere. I am not very on the money with this sort of tech stuff, so perhaps it would be better to get an iPad to edit instead? Any a…[Read more]

  • Hi,

    Own a Mac Mini late 2012 with the basic spec, dual core i5 processor and 4gb ram. I want to do a bit of life video editing with it, as have just use got an Go Pro Hero 8. Not too worried about 4K. Anyway I can upgrade my Mac Mini with an SSD drive 1TB and 16GB ram for maybe £200.

    Would that be sufficient for a bit of 1080 video, or am I…[Read more]

    Do it. Riding from your doorstep makes a huge difference to your ability to get out for short or cheeky rides. I have kids now so can’t head over to Peaslake for a whole morning/day anymore.

    Commute is a pain when it is hour(s), like mine, but good time to read, work, listen to music.

    thanks 16stonepig. I see your google skills spank mine (which is not hard, I am useless). Looks like simply a question of is it worth another £17 per tyre for a bit of extra sidewall support.

    16stonepig – tempted by the Specialized mud tyres. Do you know what the difference is between the Hillbilly GRID 2 bliss tyres (on sale) and then the Hillbilly GRID trail tyres?

    The more expensive ‘trail’ tyres look marginally lighter, but both seem to have Gripton compound. just a newer model?
