  • They make some pretty good noises. The inspiration for some of this came from ship foghorns I think:

  • Do you guys reckon £175 is a reasonable asking price for this?

    56cm langster. Emerald green paint job (2008 style I believe).
    Bought off here a year ago for £260 (http://www.lfgss.com/thread86024.html)

    Not been too careful with it. Several paint chips, rear sprocket fused to hub but fixed and ss drive still good. New campag veloce brakes, bartape, lights and mudguards included.

    £150 for ollie ;) plus clean your sweat and other bodily fluids off it first

    edit: Srsly 175 is probably fine. Favourable compared w ebay.

  • Spotter not that physically large but fairly grand in places..
    Barts hospital has a pathology museum with spiral staircase, triple height main area with 2x galleries going round the outside. They will probably let you in if you ask nicely.

    Similarly the great hall there has a fantastic staircase leading up to it with murals by hogarth. Rarely used. Rarely locked

  • Can anyone recommend somesummer mitts with good padding?
    I've been looking at the Specialized BG range; the padding looks good but their sizing is a bit off for me.

  • Calculator says 286.4 for rear and 287mm for front. Should u round up or down?

    Down

    I'd get 286mm for both.

    Precisely

  • As an onanist myself I can tell you that 'plumbed in' is not quite the right term!

    Surely the pipes are lead soldered at the joints? In which case, plumbed is exactly the right word.

  • Removing decals that are under lacquer?

    Can feel that they are significantly raised up from the frame...is it possible without damaging paint?

  • Surely the pipes are lead soldered at the joints? In which case, plumbed is exactly the right word.

    It depends. Usually they are slotted into a horizontal wooden soundboard that sits on top of the wind chests, which has pallets in to control the flow of air to the particular pipe. Most of the trunking inside is wood and leather.

  • Does the term "plumb" not actually refer to aligning stuff straight?

  • No its from the Latin for lead, plumbium

    Hence Pb is the chemical symbol for lead

  • Does the term "plumb" not actually refer to aligning stuff straight?

    The plumb in plumb-line refers to the lead weight (plumb-bob) at the end.

  • i.e. perpendicular to the ground plane

  • I could be wrong but weight make a bigger difference than aerodynamic when descending.

    I'm sure mdcc_tester will come along and correct me like a rude 5 years old who use the wrong crayon to paint Superman with.

    Ed, you're the rude 5 years old who use the wrong crayon to paint Superman with.

  • I've been given the task to set up a LED panel in our warehouse to display data, namely a webpage with some database data on it.

    Same kind of idea as this:

    I've got an LED Telly with built in Wifi, but the built in browser will not go fullscreen so I'm going to need to bite the bullet and plug a pc into it via HDMI and run something like Chrome in kiosk mode. I could easily buy an Acer Revo but was wondering if any one knew of anything cheaper, since all its going to do is run a browser!

  • Something like raspberry pi might work?

    Or else get a media streaming box (±£20) and get that to stream from another/virtual machine?

  • raspberry pi, perfect for the job surely?

    also, why did tester change organist to onanist in the plumbed in organ debacle up there^? I didn't get the joke, if it was one, unless it was a subtle bit of calling someone a wanker on the internet, which I did get, but will refer to my previous comments on the role of onan in the bible.

  • Raspberry pi or a beagleboard or pandaboard would all be up to the job.

  • Arduino not so much.

  • have a pair of these

    shifted up to the front big ring earlier and now the front lever won't click back down again.

    I've blasted the lever with piss WD40, and it's still not working following that.

    And the front mech itself isn't the issue, it moves fine.

    Apart from buying a new triple lever, wtf can i do?

  • If you've tried WD40, all that is left is to hammer the fuck out of it until it works or is broken beyond hammering.

  • I think they have a two year warranty on shifters.

  • Is it possible to increase the spring tension on these?

  • I guess theoretically you could remove the springs and put tighter ones in but there's no easy way.

  • Indra, stop trolling the Any question answered page.

    Apply the brake level and try to look at the gear cable mechanism, occasionally the gear cables fray at the nipple thus jamming the cable in the shifter. Can be tricky to remove but patience and needle nosed pliers usually do the trick.
