  • So the submission was a good thing?

    It's a normal part of assembling practical components. Things must bend in order to generate the forces which stop them drifting off into space. What you did is not outside the ordinary limits of how far things have to bend to go together.

  • What is a .install file? How do I run it?

  • and, is my IPv4 address equivalent to my IP address?

  • is my IPv4 address equivalent to my IP address?

    It's the IP address you'd recognise if you've been at this for a while, a 32 bit number usually written as four 8-bit numbers converted to decimal and separated by dots e.g. 128.1.1.0
    You might simultaneously have a 128-bit IPv6 address for the same node

  • im asked to locate my "IP address" - doing ipconfig/all i see "IPv4 address" with 192.168.etc etc

  • i see "IPv4 address" with 192.168.etc etc

    That's your IP address on your LAN. If that's all you need to know, you're done. If you need to know where the rest of the world thinks you are, you need to look on your internet router to see what the external IP address is*

    *or JFGI, google result for "what's my IP" will return the external address of your router

  • Does 1 1/8 to 1 1/2 headset adapters actually work (not shit) and is there a forum approved offering?

  • Afaik it has to be an external 1 1/2” headset lower in a 44mm headtube. With a crown race on the fork that takes it up to 1 1/2”. I’ve used the m:part offering with 0 issues.

  • Afaik it has to be an external 1 1/2” headset lower in a 44mm headtube

    If you're putting a 1⅛" fork into a 44mm head tube, you can of course use a ZS44/30 lower, but you have to accommodate (or tolerate) the change in geometry.

  • I've got a Google Home Mini, which from what I can gather uses a micro USB connection with 5V, 1.8A.

    If I have a plug with USB outlets that are 5V, 3.1A will it be fine? And does the 3.1A represent the maximum available that could be drawn?

    Cheers.

  • does the 3.1A represent the maximum available that could be drawn?

    Yes

  • Thanks you and @timmah!, I'll give them a punt I reckon!

  • Thanks Tester and Mcamb! But would it work the other way around, a 1 1/2 fork in a 1 1/8 headtube ? Is the sterer to wide or is the fulcrum effect of going from a narrower to wider diameter going to mess it up ( and of course geometry change)?

  • would it work the other way around, a 1 1/2 fork in a 1 1/8 headtube

    No, of course not. 1..5" is 38mm, a normal 1⅛" EC lower cup goes into a 34mm ID head tube. If you have a 44mm ID head tube and an IS44 headset for a 1⅛" fork, you can use an EC44/40 lower and accept the extra 12-14mm added to your effective fork length, but I'm guessing that if you had that you wouldn't even be asking.

  • speedtest.net shows your IP address.

  • All sorted, thanks... ☺️

  • Oh that looks very very serious failure.

    More serious that joints coming apart.

  • Guessed as much, thanks!

  • Is @fredtc pronounced "Fred TC" or "Fredcetera"?

  • Fred T C

    Thanks for asking

  • Thanks for clearing that up. I have no idea why that was on my mind.

  • no idea why that was on my mind.

    ...let cetera 🙂

  • Thanks. I'll have a proper look at them before fitting and listen out for any creaks if they do go on.
