Re: Covid-19 Lockdown-ish : Will you still cycle ?

Reservists are being called up so hopefully seeing troops on the street may finally persuade people that IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU RECKON.

We've been told what to do so quibbling about the minutiae won't help anyone.

If you don't NEED to leave the home then don't.

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

There can't seriously be anyone happy with the way boris and bankrollers are handling this crisis ??

Also thanks tory voters for all those "unneeded" beds slashed by the austerity maddened ministers. If you voted for cuts you should be last in the queue

But what if leaving proves to be a mistake? What then Al?


Every leave support I've talked to (a hell of a lot) is convinced that any down side will not apply to them but only to the " Undeserving" poor/foreigner/incorrect melanin level etc etc

Re: 11-speed cassette/freehub compatibility Campy vs Shimano

Excuse me if I'm incorrect but isnt the spacing on 11spd cassettes identical so the neutral service motorbikes only have to carry one style of wheel ?

Re: Manchester

When your homes and communities are attacked from the air by planes and drones and you have no way of protecting yourselves or fighting back how long would you let this continue before you felt driven to act ? How many friends and family would you let die without you act in the only way open to you?...

Re: Indyref2

I hope the Scot's get their independence finally. By doing this they may escape the several centuries of pay back heading for the English in our isolated, no friends left, state post Brexit. Yes but we are the English and everyone loves us really ...... really ? If you're daft enough to believe this...
