    Oh its a self imposed deadline based on when our rent payments go out and so when we need to give notice - if we go past it it means quality time living with my folks in sunny Sidcup, which I'd rather not happen. Ever.

    I'm just hoping that by the 18th of October we'll know how long we have to keep waiting around.

    I'm in almost same position, so eager to hear! Our soft-but-hard deadline is coming, as we have to give a months notice on our rent place on or before Oct 18th if we don't want to pay more than one more rent payment.

    So I've been working on a side project that is about bikes, but not a bike. It's a web app type thing that could potentially be a great resource. Would people be adverse to me starting a thread in here or is there a better place?

    All this arguing just tells me something absolutely terrifying ... the next logical step in doping of athletes is almost certainly going to be (or already is) gene doping. How long before parents can pay for little tommy to be born with those 23 polymorphisms? And how do you test for that?

    Same ride as last weekend, but sans wife. Didn't blow up a tyre. Did swallow a bug and see a dead badger.

    That might be my goto route south of London.

    Haha. I slid on the mud for a good bit, and there was a bent up fosters can where I slid. I've never known a tyre to fail like that, so assumed it was the cause - I didn't know they had form, it was indeed a Conti, a GP400S II.

    We only got offered upto £360K on a combined income of £90k, but I'm guessing that was more down to our low LTV (we only have about £20k in savings for a deposit).

    Had a nice gentle ride out to Sevenoaks with the wife, or rather it would have been if this had been avoided. That tyre had less than 25km in it, you can still see the mould lines, FFS.

    I had to ride 20km with a gel wrapper between the innertube and the tyre, and keep the descending speed below 'ludicrous'.

    The route was great though, I'd love to work it into a loop round Knoles Park and back into Herne Hill next time.

    Did you change the font-weight over the weekend? Suddenly all has gone very light. I love the font, but it loses a lot of it's charm at this weight.

    I'm on the latest Safari on Mavericks, FWIW. Web inspector is saying body copy is now at 300.

    Never had problems with my Cyclo 505 in the rain but they have just royally ballsed up the latest set of software updates so I'm wary of recommending them absolutely.
