    I've not had any issues at all returning things either. The process was always really easy, though I have only ever returned unused items. I think they only ask for photographs in the case of a faulty/damaged/incomplete item in case they can fix the issue without a return.

    For the golfer's elbow, you might try what Mark Rippetoe recommends here:

    or here:

    Basically, do a lot of sets of bodyweight chinups with a submaximal number of reps. In the second video he recommends each set should be a third of your max. E.g. if you can do ten reps, then he suggests sets of 3 reps with a 1 minute break, with the goal to do twenty sets (but if it is too painful, then start with fewer sets and work up).

    It seemed to work for me. I developed golfer's elbow just before the last time gyms were forced to close. It didn't seem to go away even when I was just doing some bodyweight stuff at home, so I tried the protocol he recommended, and it seemed to work (at least I no longer have golfer's elbow).

    Bit too subtle for me. I haven't looked at this thread for a long time. (And even for the 1kg tubs they quote a price per 100g...) I was buying the 1kg tubs of unsalted Pic's from Amazon for a while. That stopped when they went out of stock and now they are back in stock the price is up to £15 per tub (from about £10).

    Same thing... The per unit prices are given per 100g. They don't sell 1kg jars of either brand (though Pic's do sell a 1kg tub)

    In case anyone is interested: Pic's Peanut Butter is now much cheaper at Tesco. Used to be £1.06 per 100 grams, now only £0.78. I had been buying Millie's 100% peanut butter as it was much cheaper at about £0.50 per 100 grams, but with a fairly similar taste (and I prefer unsalted - Tesco's don't seem to stock the unsalted Pic's), but now Tesco's have just stopped stocking Millie's. I think these two things happened at the same time.

    Aren't plyo boxes often enclosed? The one in your picture could potentially be assembled without one of the faces and the internal bracing. However it looks just like this one

    and so the edge of the open face would not be flush. A wooden crate might do the trick if you can find the right size (and should be cheaper).

    His post was edited. Originally it said:

    What do we think about my trusty steed?

    He has posted one of his own bikes in here every two years:
    two years ago
    four years ago
    six years ago

    He always gets the same response. If he is not trolling, then it is bizarre.

    The vertical axis is in kilograms, not per cent

    I recently replaced a Miche 20t sprocket (Miche 19t sprockets and above are alloy) because of wear after two years of use. At the same time I replaced the 48t chainring, which was about three years old. They were on a bike I ride between about 1500 and 2000km per year (including in winter and off-road).
