  • @hugo7 thanks for explaining that. Hydraulic braking systems I'm fine, it's TV connectivity that needs a refresher. In my limited research I'd read Chromecast Audio had been discontinued, which is weird as sounds like it has lots of fans. What I'll likely do is mount the TV and use it through the WiFi, then see if I really need the luxury of surround sound. Aware this is teetering on golf club chat.

    @pdlouche always fitted Hel to my bikes as braided lines obviously makes such a difference, also the bikes are so old I'm not keeping the stock rubber ones! In time would like to try the Hel radial front master cylinder and maybe even calipers, although that's less likely with the price.

    @dr_nosh would love to see any photos if you have them. Security is definitely on the list and it's maybe not as bad as it looks, there's a 2 tone 4x4 parked in front of the garage door.

    I wish that I’d never followed them on Instagram. Their race spec kit is nsfw.

    As for the tv/music thing, I wholeheartedly support having some setup that suits the space. Modern Smart TV’s are great because Youtube etc comes as an app, but are awful because you can’t use an ad-blocker, and searching, scrubbing through videos is a pain.

    If you have the space and means, I’d go old laptop with hdmi/displayport/dvi/whatever and a stereo. For the sake of three appliances, at least your tv does the tv-ing, laptop holds the browsing and music, and stereo does the sound. That way you can ad-block when streaming, and have the benefit of a physical keyboard (and external mouse) that you can put a cover over when your hands are greasy.

    Nothing stopping you ripping the audio cable out and plugging directly to your phone when you prefer.
