Re: Sanctions?

Hello again, Sorry that I have been unable to respond to some of the stuff waffled about, but I was "Banned" from access without any form of defence! For questioning the misuse of words by certain posters it was deemed "Abusive"? No replies were offered to messages asking for an...

Re: Just venting (advice from a stranger)

What a lot of mean spirited people you are ! The lady was clearly concerned about the OP safety and got into a debate of which she did not know how contentious it is. Can you wonder why she is of the opinion she is given all of the pro helmet debate she must read of. Oh and lighten up everyone howev...

Re: Advice For Buying A Cycle Cam

<SNIP> I,d be a liar to say it hadn't happened to me FP but probably count on one hand how many times. That doesn't say a lot really as it's all dependent on how many Mike's you do a week, whether it's in rural or urban environment etc etc. Dare I say one of the times it happened was on a mini round...

" Mini roundabout " yes they can be a pain literally it seems. The OP didnt mention one but rather that the car had pulled out from a side road.
I dont think it was an unfair question.

Re: Facial Recognition by the Authorities

It has the potential to bring great benefit, and the potential to be badly misused. As I retired copper I wouldn't want to see it used without some rigorous and specific legislation governing its use, and for the technology to mature much, much more than it is at present. Seen the clip twice now. F...

Re: Danny Baker

He doesn't help his case by inferring that anyone who points out racism is mentally ill. Er .. no. It's YOU that has inferred this. You should probably get a dictionary before joining in the next indignation flash-mob my friend! The inference from him saying racial connotations "never occurred...

Re: New frame. Steep seat angle. Unrideable.

Unfortunately, for some old-school framebuilders who made their name mainly building racing frames, steep seat angles on small frames is, for them, indeed the standard geometry. I rode frames like that for many years without realising there was a problem. If you have no joy with the framebuilders, ...

Re: RIP Jobst Brandt

He did go home after his final crash. If you scroll down this page to the section titled Jobst Brandt, R.I.P., January 14, 1935 - May 5, 2015 (do a Command-F for “I met Jobst” on that page), you’ll read an account of Brandt’s life that finishes with his demise. It doesn’t make happy reading. Thanks...

Re: Fitting a Deore Chain Set.

FWIW I have happily run a shimano 9s chainset as part of a 3x7s MTB system with no problems. However that is all shimano parts and I retained the same middle to big ring interval, so it all just worked. cheers Yes but is it a Hollowtech CS and are you using a 9 speed chain. Surprised you didnt ment...
