Re: "The Greatest Dancer" BBC

I get one weekend off in three and if there's something I want to watch that's on when I'm at work I'll record it for later viewing. This and other talent programs are one reason why I don't mind working Saturdays, when I am off there's usuallyt something else for me to watch or to catch up on recor...

Re: Cats

Rabbits exhibit similar behaviour. In fact most prey species will run in some sort of zig-zag in order to shake off the threat. Unfortunately what works to escape a dog or similar actively chasing them tends to fail with something that's trying to avoid them. IME rabbits will run along in front and...

Re: Exposure Lights: Repair Service

I contacted them when the Storm Port cover on my Sirrus wasn't seating as well as it should. Initially I spoke to them at the NEC show but they didn't have any left but an email when I got home and a few days later one arrived in the post. I need to do the same with my TraceR light now.

Re: Coach indicator light

Have seen the indicator light on the newer double deck coaches operated by the local National Express operator but never been in a position to get the light on video and don't think it will come out too well being a LED light. What appears to be a solid light to the naked eye will appear to flash wh...

Re: Have you been "advised" by the police?

On my way to work one morning I got told to stop by what we now call an ARV. As I was riding along I heard the sirens etc so looked round and saw the convoy escorting a prison van so pulled into a set back bus stop and slowed down which the lead car did and the copper in the passenger seat would his...

Re: Elderly drivers: when is it time to hand over the car keys?

My Grandad handed his licence back after what I believe was his first accident when he was 90. Thankfully he's still with us and celebrated his 98th Birthday last month. I want him to get another letter from Lizzie like when he did for putting up with my Nan for 60 years of marriage.

Re: Cycling to work

In the summer I made use of the showers in work as I was arriving dripping in sweat not helped by the perspex roof of the cycle sheds. An inwork shower for me was in and out in 3 minutes and drying and putting on clean clothes took 4 times as long.

Re: aluminium bars - 3 year life?

The pair on the commute bike are creaking and were pre-owned when I got them so it's time to change as the creaking is getting on my nerves and I've done the loosening and greasing of bolts etc on shifters and clamps with no joy. Payday this week so will wander along to LBS and see what's in stock.

Re: Disc Rotor Cleaning

Anyone used fairy liquid and hot water to clean disc rotors or are you better using a specific disc brake cleaner like fenwicks or muc-off? Worked for me when I cleaned the spares rotors I had kicking around and wanted to get the spare pair wheels ready to ride at short notice. I now have three pai...

Re: Rear light that lasts

Exposure lights have a power level indicator when you turn them off. I can't remember the levels but it flashes several times in either green, orange or red when you turn the light off.

Re: Moon Comet Mounts Compatible with Cateye Lights????

AS stated by others they are similar shaped mounts but slightly different sized. Think there was similar sizing issues with Smart LEDs as I had both way back then, seeing a spare bracket thinking it would be OK for one light then trying it and finding it was for the other light.

Re: Apple posts biggest single loss in 10 years

My current handset is over three years old now even though the contract finished in June. When month 21 came and went on the contract I looked around at handsets and deals and the prices for new handsets were too expensive for what I considered to be a handset without any great deal of improvements ...
