Re: ** The General Election Thread **

What strange times in which we live.......never thought I'd agree with anything any Conservative ever said, but Major not far off the mark: "Sir John is set to describe Brexit as the “worst foreign policy decision in my lifetime”, and will say leaving the EU will affect “nearly every single asp...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

As always the upper part of the class war divide will shed what few pretend principles they have and do anything to deny an even vaguely left wing government. All over bar the counting. Extreme right wing will triumph on the back of brexit. If you are poor, disabled or have any belief in equality be...

Much of the adjoining (nearly) rail station works already done. As above, buses etc a pretty good service. It's the in-town shopping mall bit that I don'...

Re: 12 sp SRAM NX / SLX M7100 & Chainset limitations

It all sounds very complicated to me. On my rather nice, cheap, 531 atb style tourer dirt cheap 3 x 7 with lovely xt thumbies gives 20 to 100" range on 26 x 1.5 tyres. And it all just works! Sounds lovely...would love a photo DJ !! https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3832&...
