    After some time gathering dust i have rebuilt the bike albeit with very beater parts - downtube shifters and a mix of old and fairly knackered ultegra parts but first i'll share the saddle mod. So far about 500 miles ridden and the bike feels great.

    Take your worst flite, rip off the cover and skin it to look somewhat like the rare carbon version i have always fancied..

    you'll get a postcard/RM letter through the door with the relevant info on it and then you can pay/clear you item and choose delivery date from what i recall

    if it leaks out the little pressure venting holes out the sides of the shifter body then its dead - seal has blown. Tends to happen when people force pressure into the system - it happens.. . The R series have a small design flaw - i say that when really its user error but if you use a syringe kit with a deep nozzle/fitting then its possible to put a hole in the compensation seal as it overlaps the fill port and gets pinched inside the body. Shimano dont sell the seals and instead replace the whole shifter - which currently is a rather long wait to have done via Madison. Just use the plastic funnel as per instructions in all cases.

    I dont believe the part is available. A DIY fix is likely to be a waste of time. In short you have to replace the whole shifter.

    i had to get a second person to hold the screwdriver, bloody lethal job. If you absolutely must stab yourself with chainring teeth its probably better to run the ultrasonic cleaner first.

    Lastly, if anyone uses his behaviour to suddenly ignore some/all of the lockdown rules they're just as stupid. Two wrongs don't make a right. The NHS are pleading with people to keep to the lockdown rules in spite of what Cummings has done.

    And i totally agree with you but i dont underestimate the level of conniving - we know theres history of malice behind the blundering idiot facade. I think they set their pedestal at United Russia party levels but fall well short in actual execution.

    i think part of what has happened is there has been a shying away of people to return to work - i dont mean without cause as i still think theres high risk factors, but just over what the govt would have liked to have seen over the last fortnight. Suns out for one, if we stay holed up taking the money it never really kicks in to gear. The foot up the back side the public needs is exactly whats happened here, call out a non MP but still significant person attached to govt for wrongdoing which flick a switch in the minds of millions 'well if he can..i can!' resentment of lockdown and it goes along that whole plan of how do you enact a herd immunity but without it being the govts request?, very much along the lines reported of 'control the virus' in terms of ownership, spin a rather unsophisticated reverse psychology, open up the emotional channels in a few when the press get brutal and again youve kind of captured the majority of the demographic in acting exactly as you want them to and accepting the worst govt thats ever existed. Or is that just my take?
