Re: Help with what happened today

Hilarious! I’m not familiar with trolls, but, as soon as I read the OP I thought that this has got to be a good one. You couldn’t make this stuff up, there are some strange people around :-)

Re: Egg’d

The only interaction I’ve had ‘wiv yoofs’ when cycling was a group shouting out ‘cool bike’ when we cycled past them - at 65 made my day :-)

Re: Questions about E-bike

To be brutally honest, as has already been said, that sort of price for an ebike is seriously at the low end! In some ways it might almost negate the chance of it being stolen!

Glad it’s worked out - buy another for her ASAP :-)

Re: Comments in ‘on the road’

Thanks. Definitely. In the UK we recently saw that with so many healthy young men injured by explosive devices. And both the medical care and the medical technology improved very rapidly in response. The best studied cases are the US in the Vietnam invasion and Israel in the serial post-independenc...

Cyril - no you wouldn’t! too messy, even if you have eaten!

Jonathan - similar to skeletal trauma and lightweight plaster casts, from the troubles in Northern Ireland! Common good versus personal trauma? An interesting trade off?

Re: Comments in ‘on the road’

All I was trying to ask was about the closing down of discussion about something that could be of benefit to others, ie the importance of maintaining your bike! Amongst the other stuff... did you get the information that you were seeking? Jonathan Sadly no! I think that it was you who replied to my...

Re: All those choices!

I'm afraid you can either have simple or comprehensive but not both. Comprehensive is bound to cover detailed discussions on different motors, for example. He isn't really a novice any more if he has had the chance to try all those different machines. Precisely. .No short cut to research and try so...

Re: Comments in ‘on the road’

Thanks for your comments! I was slightly surprised/saddened, not so much by the locking of the thread - I could see the obvious reason, but, reading through it again, to find individual comments removed struck me as strange. To remove random comments with no explanation strikes me as slightly odd/au...

Comments in ‘on the road’

Can someone enlighten me re: comments and moderation please. The post, just locked, about the cyclist whose brakes failed has confused me. I posted a couple of comments, as did others, that have disappeared, how/why did this happen? Was there a problem with them? If so why no mention or explanation?
