Re: cycling after cataract op advice

After 10 years I'm currently putting up with this problem which is developing in my right eye and feel treatment may soon be preferable. Despite some comments upthread I've previousl...

Re: lockdown - anyone been arrested yet?

During our last lockdown I heard of at least one idiot getting 6 months in jail for repeatedly flouting the regulations.

Our next lockdown will probably be announced tomorrow.

Re: Would you keep your bike(s) in a cellar?

I'd put a leather saddle suitably waxed down in a cellar as the damp will encourage the leather to soften. Mine is in a draughty garage in all weathers. My dad had one on his turbo indoors and said it was constantly too hard despite sweat pouring onto it. Cheers James I'm never diligent enough to g...

Re: Would you keep your bike(s) in a cellar?

I had two bikes on turbos in the cellar for a year. No problems, even though they were alongside a washing machine and a tumble dryer. I wouldn't put a leather saddle down there, though. I've also had several bikes, two with leather saddles, in my workshop for years on end. The workshop is a concret...

Re: What is this map symbol?

I’ve always understood it as being ownership. The link between two commonly owned areas. Very illuminating in my area there are bits shown as public areas now taken into pvt ownership Dunno what the law is in England, but in Alsace the rule is that if you cultivate a bit of land for 10 years withou...

Re: What Has Made You Laugh Today ?

What made me cackle today was the mental image of that Trumpanzee shoving a Taser into his belt and zapping himself in the goolies. Instant Darwin: he removed himself from the gene pool firstly by spit-roasting the means of procreation and secondly by croaking. Darwin and bar by my reckoning. I wis...
