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

.......Wasting our time? IMHO the only time the brexit nutters will realise the damage they've caused to this nation is when the it's down the tubes. What with the lunatics in charge of the country presently,bolstered by the Brexit supporting idiots,people with the most extreme delusions of grandeu...

Re: Poor Old Harry

Please, what is a knob joke? Any examples? A woman visited a plastic surgeon who told her about a new procedure called 'The Knob,' where a small knob is placed at the top of the woman's head and could be turned to tighten up her skin and produce the effect of a brand new face-lift.. Of course, the ...

Re: the right road at the right time

Two points:- There are no 'bad' roads,only bad drivers(which are IME on the increase). Everything(legally)is possible,but not everything is wise. The whole problem stems from a belief by bad/entitled/idiot drivers that cyclists shouldn't be on the roads,and they,motorists,are more important than cyc...

Re: Disc frame touring build..or just go buy a bike?

PH You won't get a fight from me,I'm too old for it :wink: I agree with all your points about rim brakes,except CCS coated rims,because they're expensive and I wouldnt want to trash one on some rough moorland track,though admit that's only a slim chance if you're watching what your doing.Where discs...

Re: Alternative to BB7 disc brakes - hydraulics perhaps.

IMO reohn2, and its only my limited opinion, hydro disc brakes are better because the hydraulics put the pads on the disc instantly whereas a cable system has inherent delays due to friction, stretch and play. I can't totally agree with that statement because when I pull on my brake lever the brake...

Re: Disc frame touring build..or just go buy a bike?

All four bikes stop extremely well with very good modulation and I can lock up both wheels should I choose to,powerwise they are equal to V's in the dry,but braking power doesn't diminish in wet or mucky conditions. I fail to see what hydros have to offer that could better them. I think we should m...

Re: Council limiting modes of transport to a cycling cafe

Is this fact or supposition? I'm not being snooty about it,just a general enquiry as you may know something we don't. On one of the twitter threads someone posted a link to the RBWM planning portal containing details of the 2017 application and refusal for a change of use from a pub to a cafe (plus...

Re: Disc frame touring build..or just go buy a bike?

Yostumpy Sorry to put you on the spot,but what makes Hydros so much better than cable discs? I'm trying to get to the bottom of it,people keep saying they're so much better but I've never felt the need to swap my BB7's(I did swap from Spyres to BB7's but that's another story)for hydros. That IS a t...

Re: Council limiting modes of transport to a cycling cafe

It looks to me as if the fundamental issue is that the cafe owner failed to get planning permission for the change of use from a pub to a cafe, and also further failed in his application to have the bicycle repair workshop and retail business conducted on the site classed as ancillary to the cafe. ...

Re: Council limiting modes of transport to a cycling cafe

Indeed. So what lies behind their desire to push this particular case? One can but wonder. There's no apparent evidence for the council's actions,well none in the public domain that I'm aware of,unless I've missed something(not unheard of). Have a look Chris Boardman's twitter feed and some of the ...

Re: The Recycling Myth?

That's all very well, but to what lengths can you go to to get them to the person who wants them? Is it worth the effort/expense/miles/postage? You have to want/need to reuse, or find someone who does. We take our recycling when we go shopping. Pointless making a separate trip. For your beer bottle...
