Re: TV licensing...

Bob was suggesting he could break in and steal my bikes, so I offered the parrot and the cats too. :lol: If I bought a book, I could sell it. The writer/publisher would not see my selling, neither would they care even if I made a profit. They were paid when the book was originally sold. If I were to...

I wonder if they would collect it, or meet me half way?
It's a long drive just to take a bike.

I could ride it there, and they could pay for my train home?

Re: RSW 16

Re: Drink up, no more CO2

PS:

Dame Vera's biggest selling record wasn't "We'll meet again" but "Auf Weidersehen Sweetheart" with an audience of RAF airmen singing along.
Makes me cry to listen.

There's a live version with the RAF somewhere, but I can't find it.

No keg beer other than lager, a cider and the ubiquitous Guinness. The four drinkers in there including me, were on real ales from h...

Re: Drink up, no more CO2

Not many keg beer drinkers round here.
I struggle to think of ANY pub with keg beer locally .............. but all have lager and cider ......... and Guinness of course.

Best thing I can do is drink all the ales before they get to them! :lol:

Re: Spacers on a 10-speed chainset

I'll go and have a measure shortly, but a little bit of info first. I bought 10sp bike with a triple chainset and all was fine until I ditched the Wipermann chain and fitted a Campagnolo one. Within a short while, I found the chain wasn't shifting properly from outer to middle, as it would sit half ...

Re: Drink up, no more CO2

Pubs use loads of CO2. Mainly for the keg beers and ciders and for the soft drink guns, but some use a CO2 charge on their real ales so that as the beer is taken from the barrel, low pressure CO2 takes up the space rather than atmospheric air through a soft spile. It's supposed to keep the beer fres...
