You may have started something here, do you think this would be the ultimate commuter bike? Certainly would have been useful on the A10/M11 roundabout just south of Cambridge a few years ago. Would hazard a guess the idiots would not be so keen to close pass.

Re: Post-Brexit - buying bike parts abroad . . (incl. Rose/DutchBikeParts)

So two thirds of that unexpected bill was the VAT that she would have paid anyway, but of course it's a better story if you don't make that clear and put the detail several paragraphs below the initial claim. +1 I on occasions import optical equipment from the EU. The company that I predominantly d...

Re: How oh how do you get a lockring off?

Normally when I take a cassette off (which is not very often these days) I tend to re-grease and service the hub at the same time. I have found that a kettle full of boiling water poured on the offending article works wonders. Obviously if you do not intend to rebuild the bearings this may be proble...

Re: The Following Spring (2022)

When I travelled extensively many countries required and I believe still require "international Certificates of Vaccination" for yellow fever and cholera. I would hazard a guess, that in future this may become the "norm" for international travel with regards to a CV19 inoculatio...

Re: Will America unite?

I did hear somewhere that on Biden's initial list of policies is the banning of pre-shredded cheese. He is indeed going to make America "grate again".

I'll get my coat.

Re: Camping in England

Several years ago I bought a copy of the "Cool Camping Guide". I quickly learnt that if I did not frequent any of the sites in the guide I had a better overall camping experience. I found that a significant proportion of the "campers" using the sites recommended by the guide cons...

Re: Buying and Carrying Meths/Alcohol for stoves

Meths will eat alloy bottles long term. this is an excellent point and one I hadn't borne in mind previously. I guess if you are using such a bottle with meths for a few days and subsequently store it dry it is likely to be OK, but it would be easy to accidentally leave it for longer than this, esp...

Re: Booze - minimum price?

What? :?: VAT stands for value added tax. Yes it's an EU thing to call it that, but it's still purchase tax. It's what it's levied on that is an issue. Loads of strange anomalies, but it's still a purchase tax nonetheless. I thought it stood for Vodka & Tonic. You learn something everyday. :D
