Re: Where you bin, man?

I don't think I'd mind having an outside lavatory. At least it would get me out the door - some days (like today) I never go out at all. :wink: A story that was related to me;- When mains sewerage arrived in Blaenau Ffestiniog a resident who was informed that the toilet could be installed inside th...

Re: Buying petrol for multifuel stove in UK

Radek, I was curious about this. Some BBQ fluids don't seem like the paraffin I like in a stove. But I don't have much experience because I don't buy BBQ charcoal as a rule. It would seem they vary a lot. There's a bit of info here about hazardous fluid numbers. https://classiccampstoves.com/threads...

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

Hi, I was only quoting what has been said today in the news media. Attack the facts as stated by the media from the car makers, But stop attacking the posters! I’m only little old me with a big fat gut :) No one's attacking you "Natural" but rather what you believe. Where are you personal...

Re: 20" aluminium mudguards

Had a fiddle. Not good news. The suggestion of Brucey's to move the bottom front rearwards (even at the expense of easy wheel removal) sounds good. The idea is to make the mudguard curve correctly. Yes, it works, but in order to do it, the bottom/front needs to move rearwards over an inch - possibl...

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

Hi, Honda's going to close Swindon it seems. It's a biggy. And they say that’s because they want to concentrate on electric cars, they said nothing to do with Brexit. Well if you think Brexit is not a factor then I think that is wishful thinking on your part. A bit like the workers in Honda's plant...

Re: Good place to base myself for days out in UK

What about some of the good campsites around Arnside and Silverdale on the Lancashire / Cumbria border? Good cycling round there and you can get around on the Lancaster to barrow train line to get further afield or do linear routes. Ah, but Porthmadog also has a cycle friendly train line(and a pret...

Fake news, folk are falling over themselves to invest in us.


Thank goodness for that, I thought it was true. :shock:

Re: Good place to base myself for days out in UK

What about somewhere near the Llwyn peninsula? You've got down the coast, up the coast, into the peninsula, Anglesey and into the Snowdonia national park too. I think s/he means Llêyn Peninsula! My Porthmadog suggestion is an excellent base for that too!! Knighton, Powys, suggested above, has some ...

Re: Cycling After Giving Blood

My experience is much the same as many others - ok to cycle after giving blood.but go fairly gently. They usually insist you have coffee and a biscuit and wait a few minutes if they know one is on a bike. I only go a bit woozy when I see the blood in bags carried around. :shock: Never after leaving ...

Re: Good place to base myself for days out in UK

Porthmadog in N. Wales offers a lot of varied routes and terrain. Some long traffic free ones.

And is close enough to England and Wales's highest peak!

Re: Has the forum hit rock bottom?

Re hitting rock bottom It's occurred to me that I've seen a version of it being done. Last Summer, we had subsidence problems with the extension at the back of our house. Without going into all the stressful details, the ground on which it is built was analysed and this was done by two men with a d...

Re: Kool Stop vs. Swissstop?

Mine is a grinding noise as the alu dust builds up as a grinding paste. Yes I agree.always when the rim is wet/dirty. As the rim heats (and it heats pretty fast) this dries and subsequent applications of the brakes remove the dusty coating and allow the block surface to dry. Can take three or four ...
