Re: Speed Flasher Machine Things - do They Work?

I have evidence that they do in our circumstance. Beware of the sweeping generalisation lest it undermines the point you seek to make.

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

I am embarrassed. Deeply.

Shameful.

Re: Too many choices - which new bike ?

The bike that fits you best is the best bike, iyswim, so a test ride is important. Thereafter nicer equipment is nicer, of course, but can be upgraded later if you want to when the other stuff wears out. Nice to use a local shop, but Decathlon has many satisfied customers too. HTH.

Re: Too many choices - which new bike ?

The one thing that struck me between the Sirrus and the Triban, was that the Sirrus seems to have significantly lower gearing; and that this is a very good thing for hills. But my knowledge is very limited and might be wrong here - and am more than happy to be corrected on this. Does the Sirrus als...

I wasn't referencing the thread, I was talking more generally, but emotions run high everywhere.

Re: Too many choices - which new bike ?

Pound-for-pound the Decathlon offer almost always trumps the big brands in terms of equipment.

And Remainers have dished it out too. Nothing to see here, surely?

Electorate? Surely you mean 52% of those who bother to vote?

Yes

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

A glaring example is the Liberal so called Democrat opportunists trying to boost their electoral credentials in the most anti democratic way possible. Utterly sickening... Al I'm a bit puzzled. If the Liberals were to gain a Parliamentary majority on a promise to Remain, surely they would behaving ...

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

Talking of democracy it seems Brexit supporters can't even accept views that differ from their own in a civilised manner. You may think that's democratic I don't. https://www.devonlive.com/news/devon-news/childrens-author-michael-morpurgo-spat-3320860 Why would I think that democratic, or defend it...

Some of us use the 'unread posts' function and might on occasion wish that they had taken that more literally :D

Re: Too many choices - which new bike ?

Pound-for-pound the Decathlon offer almost always trumps the big brands in terms of equipment. OP, others have given some good advice on bikes/types of bikes which might suit you, and importantly which you might continue to ride long term. They will not tend to be 'flashy' or overtly fashionable mod...

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

One expects that we will, collectively (but mainly the poor) bear the costs of exit until we get through the economic reversal . Memories will fade, as they tend to, and we will get on with life .
