Re: Starter Bike for (Very) Overweight Woman

Does that mean she'll never read the replies....who knows?

Anyway, I hope the OP gets a bicycle, exercise and some much needed help with her diet.

Re: Gear indexing and possible misalignment

Yes it probably is a bargain basement bike. The wife bought it as a present (birthday and father day joint present) I don't know where she got it from, all I know is it came via Amazon, I also believe the delivery was delayed due to the delivery vehicle being involved in an accident. (the box it ca...

Re: Did slavery really make Britain rich?

At the same time, the black Congolese is more likely to have sickle cell trait than a black Tunisian. ...and both are rather more likely to have sickle cell than a white person of any nationality. The idea that people of certain races are more susceptible comes from medical research done in the ear...

Re: Did slavery really make Britain rich?

Sickle cell anemia is more prevalent in certain *ethnic* groups. The prevalence is genetic, but not associated with skin colour. What is an ethnic group but the groups within whichever race. The French, for example, are an ethnic group, but are part of the broader European/white race. That sickle c...

Incomplete weld to fork

What does the forum think of this? A seemingly incomplete weld of an aluminium fork on a relatively cheap frame. Something to be concerned about or not?

Re: How to lie about history.

Best quote in the report is actually from a book about the 2017 election - it says it all really: “The Conservative Party did not lose Britain’s 2017 general election, but it has spent the last two and a half years trying to understand why it did. The Labour Party, in contrast, did lose the 2017 el...

Re: A funny kind of tea shop?

Seems to be 13 to 12 in favour now. I know the poll doesn't carry much weight, but no word from mods on this? I note things have only got more heated in the time since this thread was started.

New non-aero levers

Are any of the newly produced non-aero road brake levers any good? I know Dia-Compe produce some, possibly a few other manufacturers too. How do they compare quality wise to old Shimano levers, for which it is now very hard to source hoods.

Re: CUK supports BLM

Given the understandable confusion, maybe they should make a statement saying that they don't support Black Lives Matter the pressure group and that any previous statements weren't to be taken as such.

Re: CUK supports BLM

Black Lives Matter support defunding the police though. How do CUK square the circle that they don't (tacitly) support illegal action, when BLM want the people who the enforce law and order, the police, to be no more.

Re: CUK supports BLM

Never mind, we know who we are and BAME folk are welcome to join us out on the road as individuals and always have been. Quite. BAME people and Black Lives Matter are not one and the same. Presumably there are BAME people who do not align themselves with BLM's viewpoints or activities, so where do ...
