Re: Dishing/centring/alignment tools for building wheels – recommendations?

What do you use and would you buy it again? Currently using a Minoura dishing tool which came packaged (possibly as a freebie) with a Minoura jig. IIRC it works well with q/r axles, not so well with solid. I don't have experience of any other model, only of correcting dish by flipping the wheel in ...

Re: Surrey Ride London and Classic

I've been looking around the Surrey CC website for any information without luck, similarly a general google search.

Re: UFO Anybody seen one??

Never, their cloaking devices are too good for that :wink: .

Seen plenty of LGM. They come here on a little green card scheme, mostly getting jobs controlling pedestrian crossings. Some of them have little green bicycles and there are even a few with little green horses.
