Re: Cost/feasibility of converting these wheels from V-brakes to disc?

A reasonable pair of wheels with Deore hubs and fairly decent Rigida rims https://www.taylor-wheels.com/bike-wheels/26-inch-bike-wheel/lr-26vr-zc20swd-nisw-hbm475bl-qr-sw-2009044124443# . I've had Taylor wheels and so have several other people I know. They're not bad at all. About 65 quid posted to ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Electoral law is there for a reason. Spending rules are there for a reason. We know that both VoteLeave and Leave.EU broke the law on an unprecedented scale. Their supporters try to claim the democratic high ground while condoning the criminality that gave them the victory. Brexit supporters like t...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

As a Leave voter I certainly don't feel like a victim. Total victory for my side is now just a matter of time , when any victory at all seemed highly improbable only four years ago. In my opinion the post referendum debate has been most notable for the Remainer reaction. They tell us that they have...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Boris is not a populist, he actually supported the EU until the referendum was conceived. he's a ruthless opportunist who views himself as a romantic chancer. When he realised that Brexit was the sort of populist cause that might enhance his career he jumped on the band wagon. If that's not populis...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

I think enough people were sufficiently taken in as to think they were getting back at Cameron and Osborne. They didn't realise we would still have a tory government, such is the lack of civic education in the UK. They were indeed sick of being shafted but it wasn't the EU: it was austerity, an ent...

Your word manipulations are as predictable as ever :lol: Except I've manipulated no words. yes you did otherwise you would have quoted the full sentence instead of half of it. I reckon if you fail to see that democracy is really under threat, then what I have typed will be seen as a delusional cons...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

What's the chance of foxhunting getting through parliament? I imagine that MPs are not the constituency aimed at. Nor is the general electorate, who I understand are in favour of the ban. The suggestion is aimed at the few thousand tory party members about to vote for the next PM. Exactly. The only...

Re: About bike shops for big people?

We are, rightly IMV, advised to have meat less. Back to the 1950s. Meat was a treat. Eh? A chunk of my childhood was in the fifties and back then and in the sixties it was normal to have meat in most meals. To get back to the original question Zize seem to make bikes with a weight limit of almost 4...

Re: About bike shops for big people?

........ It is not a moral failing that you can change from willpower........ it is a change through willpower. Only willpower will stop over eating,smoking or drug abuse,the right help may be needed but ultimately it's the person's want to stop and taking the next step to actually stopping that do...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Athenian democracy was stamped on not that long after it had flowered, as has other attempts by ordinary people to promote a luke warm version of it since the end of the medieval period. I think if the internet had never been invented what's left of democracy would have died by now, the real villei...

Re: H&S and Risk assessments

That depends, quite crucially, on what you think the purpose is and what the actual words are. I've certainly seen plenty that I don't think were good for anything other than ticking a box , but that's not all of them. Pete. That's the reason to do them. If something does go wrong and blame needs a...
