Perhaps I did the same, I suppose. Coincidences do happen. Cheers

Anyway, what I wanted to post before sidetracking myself was, ‘two pairs of gloves.’ When the weather is cold and wet and you’ve had enough, a second dry set of gloves to change into is just sublime.

Re: What To Wear In Winter

moderators, have we found a glitch? What happened to Andrew_s's post above happened to mine, so I deleted it.

Of course you're right. I was merely answering Simon's point. You can find battery loan schemes in the UK via google and I believe there is a formal Bosch one in Germany.

As Colin said, electric bikes are not allowed on planes, are you planning on buying in the UK? If so, you will need to do a bit of planning and be aware that stocks of new bikes (and bits) can be problematical due to Covid and Brexit.
Its the battery which can’t fly, not the bike

I hadn’t imagined it would be controversial. Still the last couple of years have taught us to expect the unexpected.

Mint tea
I prefer most teas black, but more delicate numbers like Darjeeling and the various green and white teas are probably easier on the pallet for the ingénue. Definitely a taste worth acquiring.
I agree completely.

Re: 3rd hand

Thanks for the thought. I think CTC mods might get a bit browned off if I sought computer advice on one of their forums! Moaning, OTOH, goes unnoticed :D

SJS came third in my Safari/ Google search. Not been down rated here.
Thanks. I think there is something wrong with my Safari. Won't open some windows, gives funny search results, can't use Paypal. I'm better off using my phone

3rd hand

As a youngster I had a third hand, a sort of spring with a handle to lightly compress calliper brakes while you adjust them. I lost it and have spent the years between using cable ties but have now decided that's seriously non-green. I don't want my grandchildren to inherit a world full of my old cut cable ties. I need another third hand. Searching online I can find them easily enough in the USA but none in the UK. Does anyone know a source? The 4th hand cable stretcher isn't really a good substitute

Bit harsh. :roll: There was a time when *every last one of us* had only visited once. And with a welcome like that, I can see why some people leave it there.
I hope you’re right and I’m wrong but unfortunately I doubt it. ‘Bike rage’ would be a funny place to start for most members. Lob a comment about ´bike rage ´ then disappear tells its own story.

Re: Does anyone still use a cape

One thing you need to be sure of is that the cape will sit on your shoulders - probably advice for men this. I had one which wouldn't, which meant wearing it I looked like an icing bag.

Carry on submitting them people and if your force doesn't act then contact MP, councillors and PCC.

Our MP might as well have gone to live abroad for all the contact he bothers to make in the constituency.
