Re: New words/vocab on these fora

Indeed, they appeared to be a flashmob comprised entirely of degraffitification operatives. I was somewhat intimidated in the Sleaford railway underpass by their politeness and brandishing of paint rollers. I got out of there pretty quickly I can tell you.

I hope the scruffy yobs are back tomorrow!

Re: Vege, Vegan or Carnivore

No, but I'm supporting several hundred people who did.

In all seriousness, eating them at the factory gate as it were is an absolute revelation - you see how much flavour is lost from their being held in chill at the retailer.

You're right, memory playing tricks on me.

I like the Sutra Ltd. One of the earlier mainstream gravel bikes.

I suspect gravel bikes are your friends. Planet X have a couple at very sensible money, I know.

Re: Lightweight ladies bike

Thanks for those suggestions. I've sent her a few links, including the Trek, which is my pick of the bunch, although I've suggested that if she does go for it that she gets the shop to swap the tyres out for something a bit wider, 35 or 38mm. I've avoided bikes with disc brakes as I consider them a...

Re: Building a touring bike for my boyfriend- clueless and need help!

None of the above. There are bikes frames made especially for touring. Well, just to muddy the waters, I think that a 1990s steel mountain bike frame makes a very good base for a touring bike for many, including round-the-worlders, which is probably far enough :D It can do.
