  • is there any way I can set my iPhone up so it delays the sending out of all text messages by 10 or so seconds? So if I was to ever send a text to the wrong person I'd notice and stop it before it goes out. I know gmail has this ability but can you do it on an iphone too?

  • Hi guys!
    I have decided on two single speed bikes out of which I have to pick one for buying. I am looking for suggestions on which one to pick. I will be riding it almost everyday for a ~30 min ride.
    1) Jamis. I rode it today and it was decent enough, it has a new chain. It was a really simple bike. £100
    2) Fuji feather. I am trying this one tomorrow. From the pictures it looks like a sweet deal. £ 190

    After reading through this forum, I think the Fuji would be a better deal. Would this be a good choice?

  • Cut the red wire.

  • MTB question: My trek roscoe 8 2018 has the stock brakes on it (Shimano M315 hydraulic disc,2 pot, £40 a set online https://www.merlincycles.com/shimano-m31­5-front-and-rear-disc-brake-set-132886.h­tml?source=PHG), and a guy in the uni club has offered me a brand new pair of Sram Guide T brakes for £70, and they are currently £72 each on CRC (https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/mobi­le/sram-guide-t-disc-brakes/rp-prod18085­6?fbclid=IwAR3xykedjG5EBKSZvK1z9ZJOaHQlh­pHuT-LUWJpmjes_Y1rcligTMIELa3E). There is only 1 review I can find and people I've asked don't know much about the guide Ts, other than this is cheap for a pair of 4 pot brakes. Worthwhile upgrade?

  • the SRAMs will give you more modulation but not too much extra overall power
    up to you if that is worth the cash

  • Don't do it, shimano 4lyf.

  • At least as far as brakes go, but also most other stuff.

  • Worthwhile upgrade?

    Are you finding your current brakes deficient in some way?

  • @platypus cheers. I think if he doesn't shift them soon and wants to get rid of them he might let them go a bit cheaper, in which case I will go for it.
    @snottyotter I do usually subscribe to that philosophy

  • @mdcc_tester I haven't got much to compare them to, but when I have been on mates' bikes with better brakes I do think the stock ones on my bike could definitely be more powerful. But I suppose they do work 'fine'

  • Get bigger rotors, or some deore, they do 4 pots now if that's your thing.

  • I have some used wheels, went to set them up and found a pair of dents in the rim bed of each, opposite the valve hole so seems like someone used a fork or something to get the tyre on. Will I die if I ride these? I assume not as it doesn’t go through, and I’ll be fine. But I would feel better if a random person on the internet said it’s ok

  • Looks like a weld seam to me.

  • weld seam

    Specifically, the two round indentations are the jigging points where the rim is held in the welding fixture to make sure it's the same circumference after welding as it was before.

  • So this is expected behaviour?

  • Pacifically, yes.

  • Thanks to yous, tester and constable 👮♂️

  • Has anyone been to watch keirin in japan? I'm there in September and would love to go watch some. Unfortunately Google refuses to translate anything other than the front page of the official keirin site so I cannot work out a) which tracks are hosting meets while I am in the country or b) how we might get tickets etc.
    Any ideas?

  • There was some discussion of this a few years back. My impression was that the experience left the watcher a little cold - it's all about the betting, with little interest in the individual riders. Apparently the stands are mostly empty, with all the bettors inside checking stats and laying down their cash.
    I may have remembered this completely wrong of course.

  • Hah no that sounds familiar

  • Anyone know where one could have a some custom bag-sewing done cheaply? Looking to do something close to the Rinko-bag but for my Breakaway and with a zipper. Anyone know anywhere that would be good (and cheap)? Outside Europe is fine by me.

  • Does anyone other than White Industries make a 19t freewheel (that isn't junk)?
