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

According to some reports it's looking like any deal is down to the DUP. Representative of almost no-one. Certainly no-one ok in the mainland. None of us can can vote for its members. It doesn't even represent the people of NI and it's leader is not at Westminster. And people said we should leave th...

Re: best conversion kit

Another thing I find is that the spokes need constant checking for tightness. And the wheels occasional checking for integrity , in my case with my LBS.

Re: Charge battery from car socket

I wild camp with an ebike. Wild camping doesn't involve a car for me. I prearrange with a pub or something to charge my battery. Done this quite a number of times without difficulty.

Re: best conversion kit

AFAIK Electic Bike Conversions motors are 250w. I thought they should be ok without and strengthening. Happens I have steel forks.

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Killing of animals without first stunning was banned throughout the EU in 1979...... Maybe the UK is an exception then as UK Gov's own regulations You must stun all animals before you slaughter them unless an animal is being religiously slaughtered for halal or kosher meat . Ian I don't think that ...

Re: Phone with google

I think I might have it sorted. The mic seems to tell Google Assist that I want to communicate. It is fine without a mic.

Re: Unprovoked road rage

As variously a motorist, cyclist and pedestrian I do occasionally get it wrong. Split second decisions can go either way and minor distractions can have major consequences. My general practice is to apologise when wrong and escape intact when wronged. Obviously, an actual impact triggers a whole oth...

Re: Unprovoked road rage

Clearly I wasn't there and the whole situation may have been much more nuanced than I am able to read. But as a means of safer cycling I'm not convinced that one fingered salutes and taking keys and throwing them over hedges is the best approach.

A curious thing that kosher has never been objected to, even though largely the same.

Re: best conversion kit

I used this company. I cannot say whether or not they are the best but they worked brilliantly for me. I converted an old Raleigh hybrid and have had many a camping trip in the last three years. On Saturday I cycled 75km on 50% battery. The trip involved a number of hills. http://www.electric-bike-c...

Re: Phone with google

I've just tried some other headphones and it works. It does seem that headphones trigger assist. No headphones came with the phone.

Unfortunately for obvious reasons I want small earphones. I will need to get in touch with where I bought the phone (BT)

Thanks guys.

Re: Phone with google

The phone is brand new. I will try podcasts on the iPad. But when I away I only want the phone with me.

Two separate problems, I'm afraid
