Re: 2011 Vuelta result revision

Where do you draw the line? On the one hand, you don't want to give the message that cheats are "safe" after their crime's Expiry Date - but as I think Brucey is implying, it starts to feel a bit bonkers for really old titles. My gut feeling is that the UCI should declare a line-in-the-sa...

Re: ICE VTX 2019

Does that mean you'll have a 6yo VTX for sale?
(no, it's on my n+1 list but I have no money)

Re: Removing and refitting rear wheel on bike

I have been using my regular bike repair stand (on lowest setting) attached to the rear rack. It's a bit wobbly side-to-side, but if the front wheel is leaned against something it holds its position. I'm thinking that maybe a SS hub would also provide a holding point for the bike, but would raise it...

Re: Spade connectors for SON dynohub

I think I'll go for the 100 on eBay with free postage for £3. I think we have heat-shrink at work.

Speedmachine with rubbish/cheapo rack top bag and salvaged mudguards.
I'm returning to twist-shifting after flirting with triggers, not bothered with the LH shifter yet as I keep the front in the middle ring.

Re: Two front lights on a dyno hub?

Bringing this topic back from the grave after 6 years ... I was looking at Peterwhitecycles https://www.peterwhitecycles.com/wiringinstructions.php Where he mentions the piggyback connectors for two lights in parallel. At a later point he mentions incorrectly connecting lights to the rear light - wh...

Re: Spade connectors for SON dynohub

Peterwhite says 4.8, so I believe that
https://www.peterwhitecycles.com/wiringinstructions.php

Also he talks about wiring two headlights in parallel. Never even considered this, has anyone tried this?

Spade connectors for SON dynohub

Where's the best place to get spade connectors for SON dynohubs? I know SPA and SJS will stock them but with £5 postage it seems exorbitant.

Re: Net tax contribution

No, DINKYs = Dual Income No Kids.
It is the venn diagram intersection of two people, both with jobs, no kids.
Why does this confuse you?

Re: Net tax contribution

It's the logic of describing someone as double income no kids YET and then saying they won't have children. I think you're grasping at straws here. You could say that no-one should since by miracle or medical marvel people could have kids in their 50s or 60s. Yes it would be odd to describe 20 year...

Re: Net tax contribution

DINKY means double income no kids yet so how do you know they won't have children in the next 30 years? Well, because they are in their mid/late forties (so would need medical assistance) and have either contended that they will never have kids or have tried, failed and given up. Bit of a personal ...
