Re: CBD oil

I heard in a broadcast that the concentration of the CBD oils that have been analyzed is very different depending on the purchased product. That also may explain some of the differences between persons.

** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Unexpectedly positive BBC News report on no deal food situation. Wholesalers are prepared and largely in favour of Brexit. Main problem anticipated seems to be obstruction by the EU at EU ports. Al But we will pay more for the same items. Good for them as they will make more profit. Not for as cons...

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

According to the papers it will be mediteranean fruit and veg that will run short. Answer is buy African produce, thats what I do anyway right now. The EU could lose a lot of business long term. As for the rest, theres always copies of the daily fascist, dont use tinned soups or sugar. Dont drive m...

Re: A new style of derailleur hanger alignment tool by Wolf Tooth

Definitely a good tool.
But I would be cautious concerning its accuracy.

Re: EU fails to properly consider cycling

The lobby for cycling in the EU is just to small unfortunately.

I wonder if there is any chance to have it better here after October.

Re: What is stopping women from cycling?

Holland is a progressive country.
Here it is not. Women usually stay in their “traditional” roles.

Re: It's not about the bike stupid.

I have nice bikes - but it is about riding!
I just love riding. Preferably on a nice bike. But riding.

Too much and too good marketing nowadays.

Re: Tell me about… rain jackets

IME there's no standard waterproof membrane breathable enough to deal with cycling at medium intensities, especially if it's raining enough to wet out the face fabric. The gore shakedry jackets don't have a face fabric and are supposedly the best available... Try the Gore Tex Shakedry and you will ...

A man 2 dogs and a cyclist

From Garmin or Spot for example.

A must in many regions in the US or Canada for example where there is no cellphone coverage.

Re: 2019 Tour de France: Spoilers!

Bernal may have won the polka dots too if stages hadn't been cut short. I wonder if the same two stages will appear again in the same order next year or soon after. Looking back, there seems to be a few riders happy to try their best to not lose but not do much to try to win. Although this could be...

Re: 2019 Tour de France: Spoilers!

The French will have nobody in the podium of the TdF at the end!!

But they have the red polka dot jersey for the 3rd year in a row.


Crazy is to see Ineos with Froome, Bernal, Thomas and soon Carapaz......

Ineos could go next year for the 3 Grand Tours and for all spots on the podium!! LOL
