Re: Another Apple Mac question.

With respect Ian, that's not quite the same as what you said. But that aside, out of interest, what mac do you have and what's the problem? And also, you can revert back to a previous version of OS X but it would involve a rebuild from scratch. If you don't have access to any of the previous two OS ...

Re: Another Apple Mac question.

Have you tried turning it off and on again? :wink: Apple don't get you to do that. With Apple you do a complete backup, do a factory reset, wait several hours, do a complete restore and then put up with exactly the same problems you had before, except now you are a few days older with nothing to sh...

Re: Conti Tyre Failure 30 Days?

I read that page a couple of weeks ago when I was looking at tyres, from memory doesn't he say that the sidewalls are quite thin?

I ended up with Conti Grand Prix 4 Season tyres which I'm very happy with.

Re: Firefox Browser Users Warning! SSD wear and tear

Let's not forget something very important here. All storage devices will fail. This is absolute, nobody can argue this point. Mechanical drives will fail SSDs will fail As it happens, modern SSDs will probably last longer than mechanical drives. As far as I'm concerned, data doesn't exist unless it'...

Re: Firefox Browser Users Warning! SSD wear and tear

For most people, this will never affect the life of their SSD. Drvies have the re/write capacity specced. They say something like 'endurance of 220TBW' (typical for a 750 GB drive). So, at 24 GB per day, it would take something like 25 years to kill the SSD. Of course, some of that capacity is need...

Re: What do you think of this video! Disgrace that woman

Which is what we're discussing (for better or worse). I'm looking at the video, I see her drive past the passing point and then moving slightly to the left to make more space for the cyclist to get through. In his eyes, she should have stopped. In her eyes, she made space for him to pass. One of th...

Re: My first twenty mile ride!

Thanks for the nice words everyone. Best thing is, when you've done something like this a few times and you suddenly realise you are no longer tired-out when you finish! I actually wasn't tired out after the ride, I'm quite sure I could have carried on for a good few miles further without any proble...

Re: What do you think of this video! Disgrace that woman

Now bearing in mind I'm a new cyclist so I have very little practical experience of this sort of thing. I say "this sort of thing" but I'm struggling to actually see what the problem is here. OK, she clearly didn't wait at the passing place but she did appear to move over to the left a bit...

Re: My first twenty mile ride!

What sort of thing is available for a bike with flat bars? Surely not some kind of drops? https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=bar+end+grips&client=firefox-b&biw=1366&bih=635&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjjrfW0l5zPAhUpBMAKHV_ICoYQsAQIYw Thank you, I had no...

Re: My first twenty mile ride!

Thanks everyone. Regarding the altitude gain - I live by the sea, I planned my route all the way along the seafront and back on purpose because it's flat! No problem with wrist ache, I do think it might be a good idea to add some method of giving myself alternative hand positions though. What sort o...

Thanks Si, that's interested about the clothes, what exactly should I be searching for please? I'm not even sure where to begin looking for "hi-tech fabrics that look like normal loose casual ware" ;)

My first twenty mile ride!

Not sure if this is the right place to post this so I'll see how it goes. I'm sure if it's wrong, someone will tell me. I know this won't be much of an achievement for many people here but I'm quite proud of myself. I've not owned a bike for around thirty years but recently bought a bike through C2W...

Re: Mounting rear Moon Nebula light?

Thanks.
Yes, I see what you mean about the seatstay but surely it's then pointing almost straight up?

The mudguard I have is more of a mudflap, it's a flap that sits over the top of the wheel, not one which goes all the way round. That would have been easy!
