Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

:D Give it a week or two yet, and see when the bushes get sorted. I'll get back to this when they get back to me. Looks like the three are already spoken for! :D Please don't forget here, that they are only the bushes . The spindles are stainless steel, and although my TSR is on its third set of bus...

Re: Invisible indicators on new cars.

Bikes?

Thought you were talking about cars!

We had three Minis for a while.

Yes, I reckon there's truth in that ........... except Dido (the singer) could be described as a Terrible Singer.

Re: Invisible indicators on new cars.

Our Toyota is still under warranty, and goes for its annual service every August. They MOT it as well and I trust them to do a good job ........ it costs more, so it must be better.

Don't worry TC, I'm not wound up about this, but find it interesting. I'm an obsessive sort of guy, so listing these letters and filing them keeps me sane ............. or as near as I can get to it. :wink:

Asthma Society.
Can you join it?
From what I see of their website, it would appear not, but they do want donations.

Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

I've just bought a ten year old TSR frame for a new project (Alfine hub...) so I'd be daft not buy a couple of pairs off of you, Mick! There're yours as soon as I get the five pairs done. It's a matter of chatting to my mate who is self-isolating so I don't see him very often. He won't be appearing...

The strange thing to me though, is that our friendly postie, delivered the Capita Threat to us, and that there hadn't been any "nice" letters previously or any reminders either. Maybe they've put two and two together and threatened us as per their standard format. Not sure where that lett...

Re: Exempt or not?

Sad, but very true I'm sure. :evil: Just reading this whole thread has put my heart-rate up. Just even THINKING about wearing a mask does it. I can cope, so I'm not going to get a certificate or anything, but if I had to go on the train for hours, I would do. Shopping, visiting the pub etc, I'm happ...
