Re: what are you doing ?

Wow... is there a better T-shirt in Britain ? Back from Castleton and what a fantastic part of England. We've never done a walking holiday before and what a fabulous area it is. Did all kinds of walks and visited Chatsworth gardens as well. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I must get over there again, bu...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

One side piece, small angle increment at half-way.
The other should follow at the weekend.
After this, it's the fibreboard and fibreglass game, been avoiding this till as late as possible

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Youtube is a goldmine of interesting cycling vids. This one caught my eye, a week or two back. Superb stuff. Both funny and poignant, it reminded me of the old Leigh Premier days when I was a teenager, heading out in bad weather on similar roads on club-runs or reliability trials ; only these guys a...

Great project Ray and fantastic build as usual. Efficient projects do not seem to be what this place is about :)

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Steady ride on 'Route 4' today. About 30 miles , 2hrs 13 . The sun was a bit bashful. Also there was a mild headwind that circled round during the ride, that was an odd one. Not the first time !

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

I've just found out in the last few days that the local council is intending to make a massive one-way system in Denbigh. This is because they can get money from Cardiff to do it, on the back of Covid-19 money for adaptions. There's been no official notification of this through the post or otherwise...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Used my Park Tool chain cleaner gadget for the first time. Excellent - very efficient. Painless to use and clean. Then with my clean chain whirring quietly, I got in an easy ride of 1 hour 35 around some of the usual valley roads. Shame the sun had gone in though. Very warm. On Ebay earlier I was lo...
