Reply to: Gravel curious
Its horses for courses. But for me one thing is for sure, My FS hasnt been out in months, whereas my gravel/adventure/whatever you want to call it bike is usually the one I go for everytime. Ive owned a few now along the years as well as Road bikes. Theyre just so great for exploring. I love the convenience of mixing road with paths and bridleways, and if im honest with getting older, I actually enjoy this style and pace of riding now too. They have been a welcome addition to me.Posted 1 month ago | Go to post
Love the Unit when I get chance to ride it.

Some nice gear fellas.
I owned some bits of kit in the early 90s before my kids filled life.
Korg M1 (bought for £500 with an Atari ST and Cubase)
Novation Bass station
Roland D50 (lovely FM sounds)
Akai S900 12 bit\S01
Korg Wavestation SR
Love Future Music mag back in the day!
Juno 106 are lovely. I always wanted one of those (and the JD800)
Recently bought a controller again and knobbing about with FL Studio but im well out of touch with all this new virtual stuff!
Its incredible now what you can produce on a budget.Posted 2 months ago | Go to post
Reply to: Cyclists insurance. After judge ruling
BC here for years and I can not praise them enough. Ride membership. I have unfortunately used it in anger after being hit by a car about 5 years ago or so. British Cycling were brilliant (I was dithering whether or not to claim). Its the Physiotherapy I also received which was worth mentioning.
Its nuts on the roads and unfortunately you need it these days.Posted 4 months ago | Go to post

Reply to: Ryan Adams…another creep?
Just bought tickets a few weeks ago for his forthcoming tour. I’m guessing that’s binned now. A brilliantly talented musician if a little fragile. If hes done what they accuse him of then he’ll receive his punishment.
A lot of pitchforks are out on twitter from the keyboard warriors.

Reply to: Existential (MTB) Crisis
Family wise mountain biking is a very selfish hobby however you slice it. Yes it can be inclusive with the whole family out on bikes but generally speaking most of us get out with mates (sometimes for extended periods of time) getting egged on doing daft stuff for shits n giggles. From time to time it goes a bit awry and people get hurt.
Your wife is right, reduce the risk with a young family (maybe compromise) or be prepared for the consequences. Also she wants you to spend more time with her and the kids. Whats more important to you? The signs are there.
Probably not what you wanted to hear but there you go.
Have a good recovery!Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
Reply to: Printer ink question.
Look up CISS systems for your printer. Ive got an old Epson XP-323 printer with a CISS kit fitted and its been great for years. Buy my ink from Wilkos now to top it up. I’ve got kids mind so they hammer it for homework.

Reply to: To me… RIP Barry Chuckle
Sad news. Seen them twice in Derby at the Assembly Rooms with my kids years ago. Star Wars and Indiana Jones spoofs. Great laughs. Watching Fathers nudge their kids out of the way shouting ‘…to me!!!’ as Barry Chuckle came up the isle with a bucket of foam. It was a bucket list ticked! 🙂Posted 1 year ago | Go to post
