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

As for the fishing Ted gave that away to get into the EU and there is a lot of swindling and horse trading going on. It needs to be controlled in our waters by us. Al The difference between the value of the catch by EU boats in what will again be our exclusion zone and that of UK boats in EU waters...

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

Lots of the EU 'laws' we have to observe are merely directives. Futhermore claiming that we make all our laws is just plain wrong. The 28 members of the Commission are decided by the governments of each nation which gives us exactly the same influence as Latvia and less than Luxembourg. ..... EU di...

Re: What computer do you recommend?

It depends on which Garmin you have. Mine takes a Li battery, or AA batteries both rechargeable and off-the-shelf alkaline. I think people seem to be overlooking that there is more than one model of “Garmin”. All manufactures bring out new models over time using new technology, new features, etc. T...

Re: What computer do you recommend?

Don’t rule out a Lezyne. Great battery life , easy to read even with my poor eyesight. Will automatically sync to Strava at end of ride. Gives you Strava live segments too if you’re into that sort of thing. I have no experience of Lezyne GPS units (I'd ruled them out because of a feature I needed I...

Re: What computer do you recommend?

Wahoo all day every day. 1 its a lot cheaper than the equivelant Garmin so you can then spend more on bike upgrades, the battery life is significantly better so it will last up to 18 hours like Wahoo says as opposed to Garmin who only claim it but then lasts only 6hours. Ease of use and connectivit...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Apparently Trump cut business taxes from 35% to 21% and tax revenues have increased by $3.3 trillion! Al But where is that increased revenue coming from and under what timescales. Changes to tax laws take time to come into effect (i.e. the day their are passed by Government is not the day the cuts ...

Re: Is Trump Mad?

Maybe I'm being a bit paranoia or doing the 1+1=22 but as the US mid-term elections get closer I've noticed a massive increase it hacking login attempts on my own web site. Normally it's just a background level of bots trying to exploit vulnerabilities and those are still pootling along as usual but...

Re: What computer do you recommend?

What do you use your GPS for? i.e. for navigation places your don't know following routes previously loaded or for training on routes you know well and use GPS for connecting to heart rate, cadence, etc. so you can later analyse your training. I suspect the answer to your question will depend on how...

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

Am I correct in saying that the Leave voters voted through raw emotion, and the Remain voters voted thoughtfully and intelligently? No… its not intelligent to Remain in the protectionist anti democratic Superstate dominated by two nations. The EU started out as a protectionist enterprise and contin...

Re: Schwalbe Marathon Vs Marathon Plus tyres.

Whether M or M+, it's pretty likely that a puncture will happen sometime. I've not used the M but did use the M+ which were horribly tight on my wheels and as such I genuinely feared getting a road-side puncture and NOT being either get the tyre off in the first instance or not being able to get it...
