Re: BBC have stopped iplayer

There are other ways of getting iplayer to display on a TV. Can you give someone with no tech knowledge a clue? Roku (small black mains powered box under TV - connects to TV via HDMI port) - yet another remote though! Uses wifi signal for i-player and loads more on-line stuff... At £24 (when I boug...

105 euro and it's held on with a rubber band :shock: :roll:

(Hope the g-force sensor is better behaved than the Cateye Kinetic X2 Rear light which goes 'stoplight' on typical minor road surfaces...)

Re: In for a penny - trike vs velomobile

WAW vs Sprint 26 (last 3 years' experience) Storage: I've never run a trike with a front fairing (and / or tailbox): both of ours hang by their rear wheels from the garage ceiling: not so easy with a velomobile! Parking (it's 2.8m long) and longer storage always requires pre-planning (although I am ...

Re: LIdl lamps in dynamo form (either lidl or branded something else)?

Something like this, perhaps? (I have a couple of these for use on a project - seem well made with good beam shape, but only time will tell!)

Not only that, but the mounting plate type had changed and was no longer B&M / Smart (thanks Horizon) compatible :roll:

Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

There is a very reasonably priced Mistral on eBay at the moment. Couldn’t find much positive said about them though. And it doesn’t appear to have much adjustability built in. MetaBikes I’m not sure about as a first bent. Would need to try one out first I guess :) A Mistral was my first 'bent. Both...
