Re: Team Sky is now Team INEOS

Absolute small change in cost/sponsorship terms, it seems to me

Re: Decathlon new 'gravel' bike

Hello there. Thank you for the query. The price difference with the RC 520 is due to the thicker handlebars with 16 degree flare, upgrade to gel bar tape, upgrade to the Hutchinson Override tyres and also the beautiful paint job on the frame which is a mix of gloss and matte. I hope that helps! MIC...

Re: Team Sky is now Team INEOS

I think it's fair to say that money is killing competion in pro sport where there's no limit on funding of an individual or team. Well it's creating an upper echelon of fewer teams (although Leicester blew that out of the water), but not sure it's killing competition per se? It isn't in the top ech...

Re: Challenge to Natural England Killing of Wild Birds

There are no doubt issues with the release of pheasants but it is into woodland habitats where dynamics have already been altered by man and where poorer management could easily take (or not take) place. When out cycling I tend to see more pheasants occupying arable farmland than woodland. It may b...

Care to elaborate?

Not much to add over the comments I've made previously, tbh - I think there's arguments around net benefit of environment & habitat preservation. Individual liberty figures for me also, and so on.

Re: feedback about moderation

... I wonder why I didn't find that. An educated guess is that you searched "forum.ctc.org.uk", the earliest url configuration of the current forum. The original forum was "ctcforum.org.uk". I can't recall how or when I discovered that, it certainly wasn't from memory. yes, I'm ...

Re: Tough camera

Lumix Tough. Stay with what you know :D Mine's in a truly shocking state, battered, dented, scratched. It's been drowned, kept in a damp bum bag all day and it still won't die*, and still takes good quality pictures. DMC-FT1 model, so that's 10 years old or so. *I take it rather extreme fishing, and...

Re: Challenge to Natural England Killing of Wild Birds

Whether anyone actually eats these wretched things, I have no idea. Certainly I haven't. Perhaps the queen has? Should I write and ask her what grouse meat tastes like? He can't get enough of the little blighters: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46202198 ...and he's going to be King. Oh dear! Now you...

Murdochs Sky was bad, and you had to hold your nose a little, but this is another league.

Care to assist with an explanation as to why?

Good call - I shall write Sir Philip an apology. Actually, I reckon I'm on pretty solid ground with him, doncha think? :lol:
