    Not me I'm afraid, I no longer have a commute :( I'm also still on a black Cinelli.

    @amey I live in Putney. So it appears you are correct.

    Yeah I'm converging towards that view too. I definitely like the 'home-made' aspect of it.

    So, talking about the antibody tests and how much the rates vary... how reliable are those antibody tests? Wasn't there a story at some point that the UK got a whole bunch which turned out to be completely useless?

    I mean I don't assume countries are doing widespread testing based on something that completely doesn't work, but maybe all of these numbers have to be taken with an extra big grain of salt.

    I just find the new CAAD boring in general.

    Yeah I agree with that, though I've thought pretty much all CAAD bikes of the last decade were a bit meh, looks- and paint-wise.

    Anyway, what's certainly not boring is this (from reddit):

    Here is their build log.

    I can't decide whether I really really like it or really really despise it. But boring it is not.

    Like the base color tho

    The one thing I don't like, everything else looks fine really. Nothing super special either way.

    Yeah funny how that's suddenly a possibility.

    Haha "vai piano"... hopefully that has more of an impact than just a normal street sign.

    It’s worth remembering whilst Belgium and Sweden have similar sized populations density is totally different. Sweden is over ten times the size.

    Just as a note on this, while you are of course correct that the density is different, just calculating overall density can be very misleading too. Sure Sweden is a lot larger, but when you look at a breakdown of the density, a large majority of the country is pretty empty:

    But regardless, Belgium is definitely more densely populated even if you just look at actual residential areas.
