PSA huge closing down sale blacks in tamworth

Went into today and they are having a closing down sale. I find that sales are not really sales but this sale is a proper sale. Items are marked with a sale price and then you take another 30% off this price. Items not marked with a sale price (which is not many) get 30% off. You can get the cosmos ...

Re: Fly 6 rear light and camera

I've found a slight issue. When you turn the light on it goes to medium brightness. You have to go to low settings first to then get to the highest setting. When you are on brightest setting and then turn off and back on, it goes back to medium setting. It won't go to your last setting you used or s...

Re: Fly 6 rear light and camera

I have all my lights on during the day as well. Have to compete against the daytime lights the cars have.

Re: Insurance Claim????

Oh and I was quoted at one bike shop around £250 and another just over £600 for repair.

I also got over £1600 for a small injury. It took over a year to sort out mind.

Re: Insurance Claim????

I recently had an accident with a car, where the car pulled out to turn right, straight into my path ( I was doing 25mph). I ended up hitting the car head on and going over the bonnet to the road the otherside. He accepted responsibility with SMIDSYT (Sorry Mate I Didn't See You There) and his insu...

Re: World Cup Distress.

This is the first I've heard about the free copies of the Sun being posted to addresses. What a stupid waste of money and resources. Is the package addressed personally, or is it just non-addressed? If non-addressed, we won't get a copy because we're registered with Mail Preference Service, plus ou...

Re: World Cup Distress.

I do not like football at all. Which my wife thinks is fantastic.

I love to act completely clueless at work when people try to engage you in football thinking you obviously have watched the match.

The look of surprise when they realise you have not got a clue is priceless.

Re: Digital Mapping - What do you use?

I'm looking at Viewranger app permissions now. Don't see why a mapping program should need to know my phone number and the number of someone trying to call me. It does not need it. As with may apps, they are keen that you set-up an online "account" (free) so you can upload your tracks, do...

Re: Road Legal Grass Cutters

On my commute to work I have seen a fork lift truck go on the road. It's going from one factory to just over the road and a side street to get to the next.
However it does not have any number plates on.

So would this vehicle be breaking the law and have no insurance?

Re: Close call for mother and child

Did you notice that the driver does brake before the the crossing. Does not actually stop, but slows down and still goes through.

What is not show on the camera is the look of disgust on the mothers face as she gets to the other side of the road.

My new touring bike

Very nice. I also have an inbred based touring bike. Mine is the 29er frame, is that a 26" frame?. What forks are they? It's a 26" that I have now converted from a MTB. It's a surly troll fork. I also use Surly Troll forks on a mix-n-match bike of mine, which has gone from MTB to Rough St...
