    Safari. I noticed a better experience with Edge, but seldom use it.

    I don’t mind the adverts bye. Happy for your revenue stream. But BACK does seem troublesome.

    On the iPad it looks ok too. Just the iPhone.

    Only the latest model has no separate chassis. Which was the principal issue with that crash testing. And yes there are plenty of other options. Mostly Japanese 😉

    Man buys 50/60 year old car and decides it’s crap

    Now you’re being silly. He’s restored them all and drives them for pleasure, and has a great hobby. He also had a discovery for family duties. And it was crap.

    If somebody offered me a Disco, I’d politely decline and look elsewhere. Our Modern Land Rover experience has frankly been dire. O…[Read more]

    Well it wasn’t called a defender in 1953 was it? Meant series 1 not mark.

    Our crv’s with their Haldex coupling have been surprisingly proficient for some simple off-roading. Where did the OP say he was going green-laning rowing a horsebox?

  • TiRed replied to the topic Land Rover discovery – ownership in the forum Chat Forum 1 day ago

    Owning it will be a discovery. What’s gone wrong now? My brother in law has three defenders including a mk1. It’s a hobby not transport.

    Buy a CRV or Land Cruiser if you really need the serious off roaring. (He has one of those too)

  • Took moments for me. I have a +3 difference in my eyes, so am used to blurriness on one side. But adaptation was instant. The side to side wobble of verticals through the bottom may take a little longer.

    If you’re not happy go back. The vision in the top should be the same as your original glasses of your prescription has not changed. Test that first

    Flat for everything except TT, where a tiny nose down is ok as weight is taken on forearms. The fore and aft position is just as important though.

  • Might struggle with carbon rims. And yes eddy currents induce a magnetic field to resist rotation. They bought a company that developed the original that used weights mounted on spokes.

    If you want silent, unless you have a gates drive, you’ll be disappointed. Transmission is not silent. Even my track bike. And on these trainers, you’ll hear it.

  • 80/20 rule. And for bigger clubs it’s the 95/5 rule when it comes to volunteering. We give a volunteer discount for members. And the blue hoodie of authority.

  • BC regs are you can be a member of. Ore than one club, but you can only compete in any one discipline for one club.

    900 members is not a club, it’s a movement! We’re about 200 and that’s big enough to know about a third of the members well. We’re also over a 125 years old, but not the oldest. Hello http://www.delaunecc.org/ .

  • The Kickr Core would be my choice

    This. I have it’s older big brother. the road feel is great (BIG flywheel). For apps, I like Eurosport and ride along whilst watching the classics. Or Netflix. Since you are on SS on, say 150 Watts, I wouldn’t worry about what the apps doing. In fact ERG mode on a SS is basically a constant speed on a dumb…[Read more]

  • North London would be London Phoenix and Finsbury Park. South of the river of course there is the might Twickenham 😉 (other clubs available too). And always London Dynaslow if you like Richmond Park 😉 Closer to home is RPR, but they are Johnny-come-lately’s. And fast as…

    Many many years. You do know that tubular tyres have latex tubes? You’re more likely to kill them by poor installation when you swap wheels and tyres. Or so I’ve errr heard.

    Maybe it’s my iOS phone, but whatever you’ve done to add permanent ads on the screen is killing the user experience here. Post several replies before posting and get a lovely black screen when going back.

    Drac it probably isn’t showing on your iPad. Try the magic phone instead.

    Marathon plus tyres (the latest ones roll a lot better).

    Durano plus. Same puncture protection but faster rolling. I never punctured a pair although some cuts left the blue layer showing through the rubber!

    And I have a laptop which meant I use either a Deuter road EXP rucksack or my ortlieb downtown briefcase. If i didn’t need to take a laptop, I’d use my Topeak MTX beamrack for clothes and keep shoes at work. Lighter is always nicer. I have a locker at work so really just carry shorts and underwear.
