    On tipping, depends innit.

    When Andrea Furci charged me £320 odd quid to do a slightly larger than palm sized piece on my shoulder, I didn't tip.

    When Max Kuhn charged me £450 quid to do a pretty chunky backpiece, I gave him £500. A) Because I withdrew £500, but B) he was a real nice guy and I was getting a good deal even at £500, so I didn't see the harm in giving him extra. But yeah, generally if it's a smaller piece - I won't tip. If they're good, they'll get my repeat custom instead.

    Loosen the tension of the cleat screws. Also, twist your foot slightly side to side when pressing down.

    I tried so hard to do it when I first got them, then I found the above advice and it became so straight forward.

    'Shimano very generously sponsored the components and the offset post is what they supplied. 0 setback would be correct but I was definitely not in any position to complain!'

    It has mtb pedals because it was used in a gravel race at the weekend. And because Prolly posted it therefore by definition @TheSadR thinks it must be porn.

    But yeah, definitely not porn.

    Well no. I do get it, they just need an inline. But why don't they have one if it's custom.

    Yeah. I don't get this. Full custom then has his/her saddle slammed forward on the post. Shame on thee.
