Re: Super Glue

:lol: :lol: Horrible stuff on your fingers. Been there, done that! I read somewhere that it was originally developed for battlefield surgeons as a means of closing wounds. No idea if that's right, though. It's very good for closing small wounds.Some years ago I asked a doctor about using it on smal...

Re: Retro fitting to tandem?

Thanks for that Reohn2, I'll do a little more research before pulling the trigger but think the front wheel hub motor is the way to go for the tandem. Still feels a bit expensive but don't think you'll get much for less than £500. No I don't think you get anything worth having for less than £500.Ou...

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

Is the defence of the EU if attacked by a foreign nation,in this case Russia,any different to the attack on Europe by Germany in WW2? I'm of the opinion that it should be resisted from the outset rather than allowing to continue and dithering as it was in WW2. And yes in such a conflict I'd be willi...

Re: He didn't even stop!

"Michael Tarrant, 81, of Thornwell Way, Wincanton, admitted dangerous driving at Taunton Crown Court on Monday (July 9). He denied a more serious charge of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, which was dropped." Surely one is a consequence of the other - you caused serious injury...

Re: Retro fitting to tandem?

We haven't used ours a great deal only short 10 to15 mile trundles due to Mrs R2's health issues,but its very good and the 17ah battery returns approx 30+miles per charge. It has 5 power settings which on the flat 1 or 2 setting is enough increasing the number upto 5 for steeper 10% climbs where it ...

Re: Why have disc brakes become so popular?

About 10 years ago we were looking for a winter tandem,a second tandem as we already had a Santana running V's and an Arai drag for summer riding and touring.A friend of ours had just bought a Cannondale Road tandem with BB7 cable operated discs with 203mm* rotors.We borrowed it for week. I was sold...

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

It did cause a split, that is true. But it did also allow what turned out to be a substantial proportion of the electorate to express their discontent with the EU, something that the so-called liberals would not have allowed them to do. As has been stated many times on this thread the referendum wa...

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

It didnt in my world. I dont have any issue with Leave voters. We lost the vote, it was a fair vote but it didnt go my way. I live in a democracy and that is how it goes, you let the ballot box decide and live with the outcome. But it still divided the nation almost 50/50 on the biggest issue to fa...
