    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?

    I have received a DHSC/Imperial College/Ipsos Mori letter today saying i was chosen at randon for voluntary antigen testing and will be sent a Covid test kit. Anyone else get one? i suppose i should take part because i cant very well criticize the numbers of tests etc if i dont take one thats offered.

    Its not that its not real so much as it was produced under license, a budget copy where the paid for the logos. It was produced but it does appear to have changed colour.

    Right, not sure if this is the right place but here goes:
    Have a disc fork for road which is thru axle, internal width between the blades is 100mm external is abot 126mm. The axle holes are 15mm on both the fork and a wheel i have. the left side of the fork is plain , the right fork blade appears to require an insert/nut about 17mm diameter and perhaps just under 10mm wide, as there is a mini grub screw at the base of the fork leg i assume the insert will be a cylinder with a very small flattened edge for the grub screw to bite into. I cannot for the life of me find an appropriate axle/nut combo where both parts will have the same thread pitch. reducing everything to 12mm standard would mean 5 parts instead of 2. COuld do with https://www.rodeo-labs.com/wp-content/upĀ­loads/2019/01/15mm_axle_conversion.jpg or similar but can not find stock in UK

    maybe one of your rear wheel bearings/freehub bearings has seized, the axle may well still turn. Its possible your axle has allen key shapes in the ends, if so its an easy job to undo them, pull off the freehub and check.
