So, by that token, everything to do with Team Ineos should be moved. I don't think so.

GT taken to hospital is a perfectly valid stand-alone topic.

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Raab must be hurting big time.

As Holby's been cancelled I might as well tune in :wink:

Re: Any nice 7-speed double cranksets out there?

Good call on both. I'd forgotten that 7-speed and 8-speed will work (too ingrained now in the +1 more cog wars).

The XD's look great especially at £25 for the cranks as I'm sure I can rustle up an outer ring (I definitely have a 38t in the spares box).

Precautionary by the sound of it. I think he'll be OK.

Any nice 7-speed double cranksets out there?

Does anyone know of any new 7-speed double cranksets out there? I'm planning a 7-speed build to use up some nearly new components I have knocking around - 130 BCD preferred but OK with Compact.

Shimano Tourney is another option I suppose but I'll probably change the inner ring from Steel to Alloy.

Re: Cyclist blamed in cyclist-pedestrian collision

I think it was harsh on Mr. Hazeldean and it reminds us to be insured!!

Edit: Meant to add, what a very stupid girl.

Re: Anyone watching women's world cup football?

I'll start watching it when they introduce shower cam :wink:

Actually, I have watched a bit of it and I've been quite impressed by their skill and tenacity (Holland v Nigeria was quite physical).

Good luck to the Lionesses and I hope the Scots scrape through.

Not likely IMO. Stewart won't make the Top 4.

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Chuka can stay where ever he feels comfortable (bless him) but he should give his constituents the opportunity to mandate him at a by-election. it's not just Chuka, I expressed this view about the whole batch of 'changers'.

Father's Day - What did you get?

My first Father's Day at home for about 12 years and my daughter got me 'Who Built The Moon' by Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and some Liquorice Allsorts which will see me through an afternoon of TV remote control ownership.

Anyway Dads, what did you get?

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

With all three of my horses out of the running, I thought I might have a quid on Chuka. He's been in the same party of nearly a week so must be about ready for another and I'm sure there's a way for him to get on the ballot. LOL. Chuka by name, Chuka by nature. From the moment he withdrew from the ...
