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

So no none has anything to give me hope the UK will be better off or even the same after we leave the EU. Why are we doing it then? Simple. Because a few rich neo-fascists who want to be evn richer played on prejudices and stupidity, pointed to the EU as the source of our troubles (rather than have...

Re: Tyre popped off the rim?

I’ve had a folding tyre explode off the rim whilst being inflated, at some way below maximum pressure. It’s why I don’t like folders, except for a spare one carried during a tour.

Re: He didn't even stop!

This story has been featured on the MX5 Owners’ Club pages for some days, and has attracted many comments. (The car involved was a Mazda MX5). Condemnation of the driver has been as universal as it has on here, with comments similar to this group. There is certainly no attempt to offer any excuse fo...

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

It’s now almost two years since the flawed referendum, and I’ve yet to hear one benefit of Brexit. It’s not even the “will of the people” any more according to opinion polls, not that 37% of the electorate was ever a majority.

Re: Don't cast a clout until the May is out.

My mother always used to say it meant the month of May, but I always maintained it referred to the blossom.

Re: Left or right foot de-cleating?

I’ve always unclipped my right foot, although on club rides I see most riders doing the opposite. At the moment I have a broken right ankle, so cannot ride anyway. I’ll have to see how flexible it is after healing.

Re: DAHON FOR TOURING

I did a two week moving on tour with CTC in Sardinia a few years ago on a Dahon. We used hotels, not camping, but we had full panniers. I think four or five people used them, mine being a Speed TR. The bikes coped well with the trip, although we found braking on the long mountain descents something ...

PR must be the future aim. I believe the UK is virtually the only major democracy to still use FPTP.

Re: Should the British bill the EU for saving it in WW2?

I think the OP just shows the misplaced sense of entitlement supporters of brexit have. I’ll be charitable, perhaps the comment was a failed attempt at irony :roll:
