Re: Helmet Straps

I hadn't wanted to start a do I / don't I war and tbh had forgotten about the sub forum. It was meant as a request for info only. If you don't agree with the thread subject why read it and why bother to reply? Why be so aggressive about a request for help? I'm not being aggressive about the request...

Re: Buying on-line

of Google with half a dozen keystrokes. Found it on eBay, asked permission from SWMBO, and three clicks and it was a done deal. eMail in reply to confirm. No rush, it'll be a week. Hermes tracked. If it's damaged, you have a good point. Was it a reputable seller's ebay store or are you playing the ...

Re: Buying on-line

Ask yourself: how long did you spend surfing the net to find the deal and how long might you spend waiting around for the delivery, possibly returning a damaged first one and so on? How much is your time worth? Also, how soon did you want it? For £15, able to check it over before paying and with ins...

Re: getting out of Malaga Airport on a bike

Looking more closely at the maps there are more minor roads running next to the M21 It also looks possible to get from Calle Argonautas in the airport complex to Makro and then there's a ramped footbridge cross the MA21, which is what cycle.travel suggested to me. Then when over the bridge with onl...

Re: Helmet Straps

Why is this not in the helmet forum, which is described as "bringing together all the helmet threads in one place"? The helmet subforum is under 'Campaigning & Public policy'. As long as this remains a question about helmet fitting, and doesn't turn into yet another helmet debate, it ...

Re: Quote Depth?

I still can't see the issue here. You quote what you want to quote to illustrate your answer so it's relevant and to cut down on explanation. You can even quote from a completely different thread if it helps. [...] It's simple. Just edit as you go, and quote what you want. Yes, it can be done, but ...

Re: Helmet Straps

Question is, how far can you push your helmet back & up towards the scalp? I'm trying on a new Smith Rover but no matter how I adjust the straps I can expose my forehead when the maximum lift is supposed to be 1 inch. The cradle fit is fine and overall the helmet is comfy. If you can push it ba...

Re: 8,500,000,000

Its a sad state of water bottles and coffee fix that we need before we get to work or even exist through the day. How did we do it walking and cycling to work in the war................... More pubs, public water fountains and taps. My village of roughly six streets (probably four back in the war, ...

Re: Recommend me a UK cycle route map

Of course with smartphones and cycle.travel we've all got excellent mapping in our pockets these days, but for touring you then need power points or a battery pack. If you've got dynamo lighting, then USB power points on lights or adapters for recharging fairly light medium-size battery packs seem ...

Re: Quote Depth?

Interesting that that the option of quoting "what you're replying to and what it was replying to" has no votes at present. I agree and I'm surprised by the polarisation. In case anyone wonders, I didn't include a no-quotes option because I couldn't see how it's possible in the software (e...

Re: Quote Depth?

My poll is only advisory, of course... I also don't see how the current standings (5 for 1, 3 for the current setting and 2 for unlimited) can be interpreted as suggesting an increase. I said " I can't see any consensus for a reduction " not suggesting an increase. You also wrote "th...

Re: Quote Depth?

Based on your personal opinion or the results of the poll (which if anything suggest an increase!). I can't see any consensus for a reduction. Based on reducing the workload of the volunteer moderators. Not my reason but it's an understandable one. My poll is only advisory, of course... I also don'...

Re: Quote Depth?

Well, I find the previous post bitty and hard to read, with too much repetition and not standing alone, as well as hard to reply to from a mobile.

Re: Quote Depth?

Personally, the way nested quotes are formatted makes it pretty easy to "read back" to put the post in context and ignore deeper nesting where not relevant […] I think the current limits provide a good balance. Do you really find pages full of repeats like https://forum.cyclinguk.org/view...
