Oi! B&Q (and any other friggin' bathroom retailer) get to fuck with the 'your bathroom can look like this for 199 quid' bollocks whilst showing us rooms the size of aircraft hangers.

Who the fuck can fit the entire family in the bathroom all at the same time?

Just fuck off.

Like the amphetamineszip ties, inside the handlebar . . . ?
Yup. Gonna need the DVD. We have Netflix, Kodi, Amazon Prime.

Not on any of them.
The omission of the chainstay bridge struck me as odd in the Stoater because, unlike mzjo's Gitane or (presumably) a Merckx frame, it's for touring not racing and so a bridge is rather useful to fix a mudguard to.

Mrs F has been in town today, and has come home with a "Compact Mosquito/Midge Head Net", F, For the use of.

I *really* need to start thinking about this ride, as it's only a few days away.
I've not even looked at the GPX tracks yet.
But I do have a fair idea where they go.

Why not keep at it with the file until you’ve got an honest 10 mm?

Files are for wimps - REAL men use an angle grinder  :demon:

OT but I noticed Robh's Shand Stoater has no chainstay bridge. Don't know if that's in any way size-specific but he wasn't complaining about it.
Indeed. I can't recall if Steven ever told me why he builds them like that. Possibly something to do with the fact that the intended to be multi-purpose and/or because it's designed with fat tyres in mind.

I’ve had ( and still have a few) Merckx steel frames. All use a cast bottom bracket, and have no chainstay bridge. I guess that the thinking was that one would be unnecessary given the nature of the bracket. All I can say is that they were the best handling and “ feeling” frames I have ridden.

Series that I've enjoyed that ended too soon:

Dark Skies.  ...history is a lie....
Prey.  Good ending though with the the friendly homo dominant locked in a cage.
Ultraviolet.  Jack Davenport & Idris Elba as modern vampire hunters.

On the good news side it looks like Amazon have picked up "The Expense" for Season 4  :thumbsup:
