    Can't you fit a 12 speed Shimano HG-compatible cassette?

    Someone who was assigned male at birth but identifies as female

    Isn't this itself conflating sex and gender, though? I think I have a problem with 'assigned' here. Sex is observed and recorded at birth, other than in a tiny number of cases. Babies don't have any notion of gender identity. Gender roles are developed later.

    Finally does anyone have the Kickr Climb?

    I had a go on one. It didn't feel at all 'real' to me - a novelty I think. I'd probably get one of those balance board things first.

    Wahoo bolt only works on WiFi channels 1-9

    wat.

    channels 12 and 44, and this isn’t manually changeable - for M5s at least

    wtf.

    btw, channels 36+ are 5Ghz. so possibly if all/most most of your other devices can use 5Ghz, you could turn off 2.4 GHz on your M5 (if it allows you to do that) and run a separate, single 2.4Ghz AP on channel 1-9?

    That rear wheel looks like it's trying to crawl away in shame

    Are you saying you don't have enough chain to go safely into big-big? That is a recipe for a ride-ending total lockup in my experience...

    Ok that is surprising.

    I am extremely rusty here, but I think you should probably read that as confirmation that even in a worst-case scenario, the image on the left-hand page won't be visible at all on the left edge of the right-hand page.

    One factor that comes into play is that the effective gutter in a bound book varies a bit between different pages, aside from normal variance in trimming. Depending on where the page is in each 'booklet' of maybe 16pp, which is a folded and cut single print sheet, the spine will open up a little more or less. But the printer should look after all that, and should alert you if anything in your artwork might cause problems.

    It's not quite that simple. The printers will actually arrange the pages to print so they can be bound into a book (imposition). So if there was a bleed, it wouldn't be from a left-hand page to its following right-hand page, but might be from e.g. page 4 to 13.

    The 'gap' between bound pages (which is hidden in the binding, or is cut off in perfect binding) is a 'gutter' - although that has more than one meaning. You should generally bleed an image into the gutter to prevent white space at the spine in the finished book. Printers should prevent this from actually bleeding to another page as part of pre-press.

    Check with your printers though....

    The difference is not noticeable though.
