Re: Scientists say high cadence is inefficient

I don't use a high cadence, and when I try it, I feel that effort is wasted just cranking the legs up and down. Average long term cadence for me is 67rpm. The reason I said mine was surprising was that before I had access to a power meter i would have said my optimum cadence was around 80. Whereas ...

I disagree

I agree and disagree.
The drops are correct, but the tops are wrong.
It looks like the drops and the tops have been wrapped separately.

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Notice her "countries of interest" at the bottom? Why does UK come last on her list? Political Interests: Environment, Tourism and Royal Navy. In that order, and why only those? I think they are just listed in alphabetic order. So if she had listed Uzbekistan that would have come after UK...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

The more I think about this, the more incredible it is. So would you vote Lib Dem there in South East Cornwall (IIRC), despite them generally being Remain, to have a hope of helping get this government out? The hope of turning over a new leaf. I would dearly love the whole of the front benchers on ...

Why no comment on here from "leavers" about the ferry contract debacle for example? Let's face it this Govt. are about as incompetent and dishonest as they come. Scared of what they have become embroiled in too. I for one am desperate for a change. Public inquiry, I would support that for...

Anywhere in the world?

Don't you mean anywhere in the world else except the UK?
I know loads of people who are Leavers. In fact, I can't think of anyone I know locally who isn't a Leaver.
