Audax / Re: West Highland 1000km. Thu 31 May 2018
« Last post by CrazyEnglishTriathlete on Yesterday at 11:55:17 pm »
Brevet card received yesterday, thanks.  Its arrival prompted some reflections about the rides I've done this season and this one is a clear winner for me, route was excellent and whilst challenging in places (the coast road to Campbeltown in particular) the views were stunning, helped by some excellent weather. The city centre evening start and finish worked a treat and cycling through the first night bought time in hand for some good quality sleep on nights 2 & 3. Brilliant bag drop service in Oban and the arrivee food and drink was very welcome.

My sister's opposite number!
If you peel vegetables, in which hand do you hold the knife/peeler?

Either. It depends on which is most useful at the time. Given many devices are designed for and rightanders, it pays, as a lefty, to be able to cope in a biased world.

40mph (gusting 60mph) head wind forecast for me tomorrow! As much as I've enjoyed the last few days on the singlespeed, I think tomorrow calls for gears.

The Knowledge / Are FSA M5 stem bolts special?
« Last post by mattc on Yesterday at 11:13:08 pm »
Bought a used bike with a rounded allen bolt in the stem [fork collar]. It seems a regular allen bolt, M5 (ish), an unthreaded section for about 25% of its length. The only "specialness" is that the shaft driectly underneath the cap is thickened.

Is there any reason I shouldn't replace it with  a regular M5 bolt -of roughly ssame length - from my local factors?
