I'm with you, Dave - the sooner we rejoin Australia, the sooner we get the Ashes back - or half of them, anyway!

Audax / Re: The Cambridge Autumnals 200 + 100 – Sat 27 October 2018
« Last post by wilkyboy on Today at 12:48:14 am »
I've just sent out emails with details for next weekend — if you think you've entered and didn't receive the email, drop me a line — nick@camaudax.uk.

There are still spaces on both events — I've ordered extra brevets, and moved the closing date by a few days, so get your friends to enter and join you on the event  :thumbsup:

It's getting exciting — we start baking in a couple of days, and that's always fun, I'm so easy to please  ;D

The Knowledge / Re: Who's eaten all the Hope hubs?
« Last post by Brucey on Today at 12:37:31 am »
not all Novatec F172SB hubs are the same;

this one is very similar to the Ambrosio branded one



and this one isn't


Spa cycles claim that the Novatec hub has Japanese made enduro bearings inside.  If so, this is a good thing, but almost irrelevant if the fit of the bearings in the hubshell is as poor as it often is.

cheers

The Ambrosio Zenith is a branded Novatec F172 iirc. Not sure of the bearing spec though.

Audax / Re: Audax & Recovery time
« Last post by SR Steve on Today at 12:07:08 am »
2 weeks is fine between 400s and 600s.  Make sure you keep spinnng your legs in between also stretching and appropriate refuelling.

I have 12 days (hopefully) between finishing RAtN and my 600.   That might be a push.

I also forgot the National 12hr is the weekend before PBP.   I’m not sure that combination is a particularly good idea.
It should be alright and better than the other way round. I thought the same about Mark Rigby's Highlands and Islands 1300km starting on the Isle of Arran the morning after the Mersey 24 hour in 2014, but I did ok on both rides, despite my legs being absolutely full of lactate on day 1 of the 1300. Fortunately we had a forced stop in Oban on the first night that gave me chance to recover.

On The Road / Re: Did the CTC/CUK and LCC make the correct call?
« Last post by jsabine on Today at 12:00:40 am »
I find the whole idea of die-ins, funerals and the like morbid, off-putting, and deeply counter-productive.

To me, the chief problem with that LCC letter is that it makes insufficient reference to the answer in Arkell v Pressdram.

About 25km trundling around by Brommie, split by a slow, short walk with several hundred thousand compatriots.

OT Knowledge / Extractor Fan/hood Woes
« Last post by igauk on Yesterday at 10:17:05 pm »
Hi all,
Our cooker extractor fan/hood has stopped working - no odd noises, just stopped. It makes the usual slight hum when you switch it on and the pitch of the hum changes slightly as you go through the three speed settings, just nothing from the fan. I presume then the issues is with the fan motor. It's all easily accessible but bear in mind I still think electricity is magic made by fairies, so any pointers?
Thanks
Ian
