Re: Least offensive looking 57mm dual pivots for 80's frame

".... centre-pulls, which were a sign of quality and strength in comparison to flimsy side-pulls back in the day. There wasn't actually much wrong with their basic design which better shoes and blocks wouldn't have cured...." When I used to fit 700c wheels in frames built for 27"ers, ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Wrong is an absolute - not a relative. And %ages have no bearing on numbers (in this instance).

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

As for the dodgy deal May has done with the DUP- cosying up with homophobics and other assorted bigots.... Interesting sentiment, this is a political party 300,000 people have voted for and dismissing a democratically elected party because you don't agree with what people have voted for is, I'd say...

"... she tried to move more to the middle ground and be fairer..."

Eh? But surely she's a Tory? Fair is not a word they understand - well, actually they do understand, just absolutely determined to ensure that it never happens.

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Maybe the Referendum helped the "young" realise that their vote(s) can make a difference - re-referendum now I say. No one over 65 to get a say - they ain't going to live long enough to reap what they sow. And May? The ultimate totally unprincipled opportunist. Oppose Brexit, when it happe...

Re: Modern wheels / Classic frame.

Have to say I never could see the point of the "adaptor" method referenced above. A solution looking for a non-existent problem.

Re: Modern wheels / Classic frame.

I assume frame rear is 126mm? If so, surely easy enough just to spread by hand each time fit the wheel. Never caused me any problems - nor do I recall any reported issues in the days of the Fixed Community on old C+ Forum. Similarly, when I used to convert many old 10 speeds to fixed, any screw on w...

Re: Sentencing for serious motoring offences

As I read "...the mistake is concentrating on the 140 and ignoring the rest of the 100,000 who have been successfully deterred by the prospect of serving time. " (my italics) I am not "extrapolating ...way beyond what is being said." Perhaps beyond what is meant, but not what is ...

Re: Sentencing for serious motoring offences

Is the proposition that only the threat of prison (or punishment in general) prevents people from committing "crime"? What about individual moral code(s)? I have committed many acts for which had I been caught I might well have done time. I did not (and do not) consider that the law(s) whi...
