    Dunno why I never thought to ask this here before, I have a freecoaster wheel (Cult lhd hub a brakeless Eclat rim) but I prefer riding freewheel so I'm looking for a swap with a cassette hub of similar quality/condition (I've barely used the coaster. It's pretty much mint). I'd be up for swapping whole wheels or I can pull the hub out the rim and just swap hubs. Let me know what you've got.

    Cheers all, we've booked an apartment just east of Triberg in the Black Forest for the first week then a hotel in Lech and another apartment somewhere in Switzerland for the 2nd week.

    Apartment in the Black Forest does look a bit family-y but its costing us buttons and the area it's in seems nice, pretty rural and stuff.

    Looking forward to Lech, or more specifically this,

    My fiancé suffers quite bad vertigo, especially on less solid structures. The floor of the bridge is basically chicken wire...

    We've booked flights for September, it'll be our honeymoon.

    I had briefly looked at accommodation before booking the flights and thought I'd seen some things I liked, but now that we're looking properly, I'm not so sure.

    I thought we'd be able to find a nice log cabin type place to rent but most of the cabin-y kinda places seem to be in complexes and rather family orientated. There's a few nice apartments but again, in complexes, probably aimed at the skiers.

    We fly in and out of Basel and are staying for a fortnight. We plan to hire a car and visit Switzerland, Austria, Lichtenstein and maybe Luxembourg too. Any suggestions of must sees or must dos for that part of the world?

    Take them apart and count the notches in the toothed wheel?

    ^Not sure if serious...

    @SideshowBob put them on a boss (or jam a big allen key etc in there), click them through their range of movement, count the clicks, add one and you've got your answer.

    Put an M6 bolt in it from the front and batter the fuck out of it. Worst that'll happen is that it'll take some paint/laquer with it*.

    *Probably.

    Figure out which way the wind's blowing, park bike so it's blown onto the stand rather than off it?

    I parked between two bike stands at work the other night as I was worried about it being blown over but this may not be possible for you i guess.
