  • Just discovered that Heather, Stronach, the woman who was killed last month at the junction of Portobello High St & Harry Lauder Rd, lived on my estate. It's such a shitty junction. This is a second recent fatality there (Stuart Elliot, in Spring 2019).

    I am really angry at the council's failure to act and all those who're trying to stop making roads safer. (See recent shite about last minute objections re "Sauchiebank Wood" on the planned Roseburn link in Gorgie/Dalry (a former colleague campaigned for it for years))

    If anyone can spare a few pounds, Heather's husband and friends have set up a fundraiser: https://www.justgiving.com/team/heather-­stronach

  • I found both of these deaths really affecting, even though I've never been to Edinburgh.

    Threads here:



  • Anyone know how much it costs at Henderson's to have a frame blasted and powder coated?

  • Late reply but they charged me £60 and they did a really good job.

  • For me it was £120 for blast and wet paid with a non-stocked color. I am very happy with the results.

    Next frame I'm getting modded by Andy at Armour Cycles. He'll be doing some braze-ons for internal dynamo wiring and SON SL dropouts and paint

  • Cheers both, I'll give them a call and arrange to drop my frame off - price sounds reasonable!
