Meanwhile, back in the pond, Pike had a hook embedded in Isaac Walton's Aspidistra, a fishy story, but Walt capsized due to an inadvertent tsunami emanating from his fundament.

Re: Claud Butler Majestic Bottom Bracket Length

BB axle length is determined by the chainset, not the make of model of frame, i.e. what axle length is required for that particular chainset to give a particular chainline. Thanks for reaching out. I have the original chainset but the BB was removed many years ago. I am endeavouring to determine th...

Any one out there happen to know the length of a Claud Butler Majestic BB? length end to end on the tapered section. Not the shell size width.

Thanks in advance.

Double ended inner tubes?

Just looking on the interweb for some inner tubes came across the above. Anyone ever used them? If so what was your opinion?

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

It’s very easy to get swayed by weird stats. Yes indeed. How likely do you think it would be for someone to roll two fair dice repeatedly more than 100 times without rolling a 7? More that 150 times? Would you think it extraordinary if I said that 154 had been done... The odds against are astronomi...

Re: How light can you go?

The best "lightweight" tent I ever owned was a Macpac "olympus", bought in New Zealand and somewhat different to the present incarnation. It eventually died due to UV degradation of the fly . The tent had a serious and substantial deep bucket type groundsheet that was significant...

I don't think that you are. Most of the relevant principles are the same for all parasite-host relationships whether the parasite is a virus or something else. I suggest having a look at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimal_virulence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viral_evolution The big differenc...

Re: Who's had the vaccine?

Ok, I am just a simple thermodynamicist so bear with. Why would an organism/virus develop that can effectively kill the host it relies upon for reproduction? I appreciate that the virus is not sentient and has no active input with regards to it's own evolution, neither does it know what it does to s...
