Re: Telling time on a watch with hands.

Hi all, Remember that the painting of the melting clock is "Persistence of Memory, by Salvador Dali", such detail keeps you "Spellbound" :lol: . MM

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Hi, Not Mad, but Bad! Lucky T*rd who was left enough money to let him screw up yet recover, dead jammy! He is an ignorant cretin, nearest relation the dinosaurs :twisted: . He should get roundly thrashed in November, but sadly the electoral pool in America has not got quality, so the next President ...

Re: Sudden influx of new/returning cyclists

Hi all, One very salient point - The comment that many believe the motorists have a superior right to use the roads? Yes, prevalent because of ignorance, sadly even among the folk responsible for safety on our roads - The Police! So let us correct that fallacy, Motor Traffic in all classes have no l...

Re: Sudden influx of new/returning cyclists

Hi Igurney :D , Your list of stupidity is spot on! Quite why people who would object strongly to being endangered by others don't see the sin when the boot is on the other foot? On par with the clowns who ride their fixie with no brakes, yet make a pose towards safety by wearing a plastic brain buck...

Re: Sudden influx of new/returning cyclists

Hi, With an increased occurrence of idiots on bikes insisting on riding on pavements! Why? Children I accept, but that is the limit, of course excluding teenagers! By that age they should know and comply with the law of the land. If I decided to merrily weave my way on pavements on my tricycle the r...

Re: Should the UK Parliament vote electronically

Morning, It is hard enough managing debate during this crisis, so virtual debate on-line is acceptable even if not ideal. Maybe it will improve the quality of actual debate, rather than the Bear Pit baying mob? Reasoned & rational would be a great improvement! But one thing should be permanently...

I take your quote. I don't think Auberon would suffer a "Foot in Mouth Moment", seeing as he actually shot himself in the foot with a Sten Gun :shock: , even got a War Pension for it? Daft sod. MM

Hello Mike Sales, I think you'll find that it was Auberon Waugh that made that witticism? He was no nice person either! MM

Re: The "Royals" Thread

Hi all, Maybe the scarf carries a BSI Kite Mark? And they keep telling me to wear a helmet whilst riding my trike????????
If in my case it is to reduce the chance of a serious brain injury they're covering the wrong area :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: MM

Hi, I'm a little confused! CC appears to view everything through "Rose tinted spectacles", but only ever comes out with "Blue Rinse" utterances?
He must present a combined imgage of Mary Whitehouse & Dame Edna Everage with a touch of Colonel Blimp thrown in :shock: :lol: . MM

Yo, Worried about slipping wheel due to under tightening? That is why I like vertical drop-outs! If I've bent thing on the road it tells me that I should be walking :oops: . MM

Re: Long handled 15mm spanner for leverage on axle nut plus what's on the end of a Park Tool wrench?

Hi, I'd use a 15mm socket on my 1/2" Torque wrench, over 18" long so plenty of leverage. The heavy duty hex form socket used with impact drivers gives a snug fit. No help at the road side, but then again one should never set out on a machine that's fastenings have been tightened with long ...

Re: Smaller wheels for touring.

It is just another example of why we each have so many different cycles! Whilst there is such a thing as a "Swiss Army Bicycle" (bloody heavy), it copes with its different roles but does none of them perfectly. So maybe life is saying that you do actually need another cycle to meet your pa...
