Re: Amusing video about Cervelo being shoddy

I've watched a few of those 'Hambini' videos and find them a bit cringeworthy to be honest. I've no doubt that the things he says are true, (and as an engineer myself I know some of them are true) but his delivery is far too over the top for me to watch too many. I guess that his delivery is part of...

Re: Council limiting modes of transport to a cycling cafe

Also, I'm assuming a "cyclists cafe" whilst providing extra services of interest to a cyclist (decent security parking, puncture repair kits) is for all legal intents and purposes a cafe open to all members of the general public? So even though the village may have lost a pub, they have s...

Re: Rehook

Having also seen it on 'The Den' last night I have spent all day working on a new plastic device that allows the user to easily remove and replace the dust cap on inner tubes. My prototype currently looks a little like a finger and thumb dipped in wax, but it's getting there!

Re: Favourite tea shops

Just wanted to give a shout out to a new cafe that's opened on the outskirts of Basingstoke. It's called 'Teagether' and has been open for just over a month. We visited the last two Saturdays and the Tea, Coffee and food has been good and the service great. If you're in the area then I can recommend...

Re: IPhone Software Update - Now A Charger Is A Disallowed Accessory?

I@m having the same issue - my iPhone 6 os 12.2 is refusing to charge with SOME of my third party cable, SOME work ok and all official apple cables work OK. I'm sur eit's the cables as I've swapped chargers, and they all work with Apple cables. Just another Apple trick to keep you in their eco-syste...

Re: Healthy snack bar

I make my own energy bars / balls using this recipe - https://cyclinglabs.net/home-made-energy-balls but roll them in dessicated coconut to make them a little less sticky (plus i love the taste of coconut)

Re: Bike cameras

Some of the GoPro clones are very good - I personally use this one from Amazon and am very pleased with it - https://amzn.to/2XKaaYI . There are a couple of things to be careful of though. 1. Battery life can be an issue if you're riding for more than a couple of hours, so go for one with interchang...

Re: Favourite tea shops

Came across a new cafe stop a couple of weeks ago - if you're in the Basingstoke area at any time check out House28 in Sherfield on Loddon.

Be warned though it's a vegan cafe, so you won't get a bacon butty or sausage roll however the cake selection is outstanding.

Re: CBD oil

I've been taking a 6.4mg CBD oil capsule daily since Christmas and I've noticed two immediate differences: 1. Less aches and pains in general and definitely better post-ride. 2. I seem to sleep much better - as a 30yr insomniac I still have a relatively short nights sleep at 4hrs but it's better qua...

Re: Charging my phone whilst riding

The outstanding product has to be the unit from Busch & Muller here - https://amzn.to/2UT4RnJ. Not exactly cheap but very good.

Alternatively the Kemo M-172N https://amzn.to/2HZfcNh is an OK unit but not quite as good, hence the cheaper price.

HTH
