Re: Americans Huh! Postby McVouty » Sun Nov 04, 2012 11:21 pm In both parts of Ireland the name of Primark, a company based in Dublin, is pronounced with its first syllable to rhyme with 'tree' rather than 'pie'. I suspect that the British pronunciation is partly due to the way that people educated ...

Re: The Longest Day

If we were on BST all year round I'd be able to start cycling in the evenings after work about a month before I do now. (mark1978). I remember the period in 1968-71 when we were.

Re: The Longest Day

I will waste at least an hour tomorrow morning trying to work out how to reset the time on all my different bike computers. I have tried to standardise, but the manufacturers keep 'upgrading' and introducing new models. It's worse in the spring, of course.

Re: Skyteam

Call me cynical, and I know some of you will, but now that Sky are to make their employees sign a document to the effect that they have never doped (does the question "Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?", copyright Senator Joseph McCarthy, ring any bells?)...

Re: Who should build my new frame?

Steve Shand? If I was commissioning a 'money no object' touring frame, though, I'd go to Robin Mather or Dave Yates on the grounds that my frame would be more likely to be built by The Man Himself than if it came from Mercian or Roberts, finally decide on Dave Yates, and spend the difference between...
