Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

May..................got balls after all............. Don't tell me you fell for that nonsense! She's playing up to the leavers in her party, not the EU. The show is all about trying to look strong and put off any potential leadership challenge. Claiming the EU should come back with a counter offer...

Re: Evans Cycles seeks buyer after failing to mount rescue bid

The aspect I find strange and pushes me to buy on the internet is the legal option to return after a few days (or longer). Buy in a shop and the moment you walk out of the door any non-warranty return is at the shop's "discretion". Do the same on the internet and you have 14(?) days to try...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Poll for The Times today puts Tories on 40% Labour on 36% with Jeremy's favourable rating falling from 86% to 63% amongst Labour voters so peak Corbyn appears to have been passed. With the recent Tory chaos in mind this is an awful situation for Labour. The old Labour Party would be streets ahead a...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

.... Maybe. But it's all about insults nowadays. That's the only language people understand..... Interesting how May is trying the "we've been insulted by the EU" to ry and help her through her party conference. When I saw her "Angry Robot" speech yesterday I didn't believe what...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

General Election? Increased Tory majority is the likely outcome IMO with Corbyn backed by the kamikazi scary Momentum folk at the helm. That wont solve anything, just another layer of complexity. That's what was being said before the last election. I don't think it's goingto happen. Not enough rebe...

Re: Evans Cycles seeks buyer after failing to mount rescue bid

Bricks & mortar for a company like Evans must be a very complex evaluation. The have to offer internet prices to compete against e.g. Wiggle and even themselves but the cost of running a shop must reduce margins significantly. But a shop can do things the internet can't e.g. service or immediate...

Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

No reputable medical provider will provide you with a prescription without review. That means: 1) see you GP 2) pay the fee for your phone consultation 3) take the time to go to the travel clinic Just because the medication is 'cheap' does not mean it is safe for you to use without assessment (unle...

Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

No need to get uppity or defensive, you said you were going to 3000m ish not 5000m+, not bothered where you are going, i'm sure you'd tell us if you wanted to share. Good luck "AMS occurs in about 20% of people after rapidly going to 2,500 metres (8,000 ft) and 40% of people going to 3,000 met...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

..... I hope that the People's Vote campaign for a third referendum, this one on a real deal and not unicorns and rainbows, keeps building momentum, but I don't really expect it to succeed in time. Some people (experts who should know?) are saying there is now not time to sort a referendum before w...

Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

3400 is not very high. There are places in the Alps for example where you can get that high by cablecar, the train up the Jungfrau will exceed that in less than an hours ride. I have no problem with being prepared but I think you are worrying about not a lot here. 5000m - yes i'd start to be thinki...

Re: Diamox/Acetazolamide "Source"

You don't say why you want them so it is difficult for any medical members on here to offer advice on whether your GP would/should consider giving you a prescription (it is a prescription only medication). I have had friends prescribed them for high altitude trips in the past. If unwilling to see y...

Re: Evans Cycles seeks buyer after failing to mount rescue bid

For me one of the things that has put me off the chain is that they seem to have moved from recognised quality brands to more and more "own brand" - and I have a strong mistrust of "own brands". I was seeking various bits early summer and went into one of their shops and ended up...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

Since releasing the 800 Garmin seem to release units that aren't ready then think releasing firmware patches make it OK(again look on Garmin users Forum).I prefer a unit that works from the get go. Maybe read my review of the Elemnt (above) as ask yourself if Wahoo have created a unit that "wo...

Re: Wahoo Elemnt

... Release the 1030 and from feedback from fellow CC members who bought these it's the usual Garmin story. .... I'm very happy with my 1030 (after a month daily use). It has bugs and quirks but I avoided making comparisons in this thread as it was more a review of the failures of the Wahoo Elemnt ...
