Action films, old vs new

Bruce Lee was legendary, probably because everything he did was properly and professionally choreographed due to lack of special effects. https://youtu.be/8ic2k2P_FG0?t=89 Unlike this guy. https://youtu.be/4704rQ56Vfs?t=110 [in appropriate phrase removed - please revisit the forums rules on swearing]

Re: Scott broken cable lug

One of the bottle cage bolts wouldn't undo (was turning) so I just pulled it out, taking a small piece of frame with it. That's the disturbing bit, the lug can likely be bodged. Get a frame made out of a sturdy material ;) :P Got a Ceepo Mamba 2017. Not a make I ever heard of and was considerably l...

Re: Ad Blockers

The point about advertising is that many free to use websites are funded by advertisements. Paid for newspapers contain paid for adverts and anyone who buys teh newspaper is effectively paying to see the adverts. Online newspapers have to be funded somehow either through a so called paywall or by b...

Re: Who should we be boycotting?

I boycott Ferarri because I cant afford one. Actually its a bit difficult to boycott stuff. You hear of one company treating their workers like feces, but then loads of others also treat their workers the same. I'd end up not buying anything if could only buy from businesses that pay decent wages an...

Re: Do you love your job?

If there is one thing I hate and love it is work I was unemployed for a while, it was awful, did not know what to do with myself One reads about people who love their work and believe in it. I was lucky, had several jobs I could identify with, in a cycle shop, selling books, on a steam railway.. An...

Re: World cup - looking forward?

Football's comin home! Comin home early. :( Or later than most people expected at the start of proceedings? If you try to win you may lose, but if you don't try to win you'll definitely lose! True. I also cant deny England did well to get to the semi finals. Not exactly an easy thing to do. Half th...

Re: Looking to buy a high end bike but

UPDATE: I bought a Ceepo Mamba. It was considerably less than what I intended to spend and after searching online and visiting several shops, it is the absolutely only bike that ticked all the essential boxes (bikes all have [rude word removed] PF BBs). It's also nicer to ride than Amanda Holden.

Re: Which road bike?

At your weight you will need an expedition touring bike with heavy wheels and a heavy, overbuilt frame to take your weight. check out fat bikes.

Yup.

Pretty useless as I do my own maintenance. I guess 7 years is adequate albeit not particularly great for the use I had.

Looking to buy a high end bike but

all I can find online is ones with press fit BBs or non compact chainrings. Here's what I'm looking for: Hollowtech or similar bottom bracket. There is more chance of discovering penguins on Pluto than me buying press fit! (google them) 50x34 chain rings and 11/12x28/30 cassette. My recently decease...

Scott broken cable lug

https://image.ibb.co/eLUbMo/IMG0056A.jpg Not as bad as it looks (actually it is) . I was pondering over a new bike anyway. That is my Scott CR1 2011. The lug holding the rear derailer cable failed completely. I had previously noticed the paint around the lug had disintegrated. Didn't think too much...

Re: Abuse and agriculture

I'd have likely lost my temper and booted his car, mirror or something. May well have came a cropper for it but I require people to not abuse me physically or verbally. Crikey - you'd have had a bad time at the school I attended! I had a bad time at school anyway. Like really bad. I actually left s...

Re: Abuse and agriculture

It was a beautiful morning for the bike this morning and at just after 8.30, I was cycling gently along Peckforton Road towards Beeston Village in South Cheshire. I caught up with a black Land Rover Defender, TA11RAE. Some 50m in front of that were 4 small cows and in front of them someone walking ...
