    I’m convinced half the time they just get put about to rope people in and don’t even work..

    Coolio thanks all.

    I just checked and that code didn’t work with the model I ordered - it already had £90 off so I think that’s why. We tried a load of my wife’s NHS discount codes and they didn’t work either. Did get a 27” monitor for £85 though, down to £100 for buying it with the laptop and 15% off NHS discount. 👍🏻

    Went for an Inspiron with an i5 they had an offer of.

    I’m going to upgrade the storage immediately to save fading later transferring data, what’s the deal these days with windows? I presume I’ll have to create an installer usb key but then how do you verify windows, will it come with a code with the laptop?

    I’m a Mac w*nker and it’s been so long since I’ve actually installed windows on a machine I’ve no idea how Microsoft deals with this anymore..

    Wife needs a new laptop to replace ancient Sony.

    It’s primarily for working from home, so office apps and lots of stuff running at once, but nothing taxing. It would be nice if it could do a bit of a photoshop as she’s into her photography too.

    Any ideas? Was looking at Ryzen 3500 laptops?

    Thomson stem bolts.

    Does anyone have any idea where you can buy them, ideally from a fasteners merchant rather than a bike shop, annoyingly they’re rather specific.

    Also, any thoughts generally on car bike racks, tow bar seems like the obvious way to go if you have one (I do), much easier than getting bikes on/off the roof and no where near as much danger of forgetting they’re there whilst entering car parks and the like. Any recommendations? Or is it just Thule > everything else like with most things..

    Little bit obscure, does anyone happen to know if the windshield for the Thule ride along mini will also fit on the mount for the Yepp mini?

    Recently picked up a Yepp mini 2nd hand and there’s currently a very cheap windshield for the ride along on eBay, but I’m guessing they’re incompatible, just wondering if anyone has both or has experience of both? Ta!

    Forgotten how much I wanted one of these. Was looking for a 29er SS one when I found my Niner instead.

    For me the quintessential inbred has always been SS and rigid.
