    For occasional tow paths? Brave. I've had a couple explosive sidewall failures on GP4000s - I don't know that I'd trust them on gravely tow paths. I'd probably go something with proper bead to bead puncture protection like a GP 4 seasons or the above mentioned Michelin Endurance

    That price for 28c is pretty good. They're hard to find now because they've been superseded by the Power Endurance.

    They're great tyres, I've been using them all winter through some horrible conditions and some light gravel and 0 punctures so far. Roll nicely too.

    Can't help with that particular coffee liqueur but I know the Whisky Exchange stock Mr. Black which is a similar product from Australia.

    Does anyone have any spare frame bungs to cover internal cabling holes? I lost one from my Genesis Datum on a cross ride yesterday so now I've got a nice hole in my head tube - not great considering the crap conditions this bike normally sees.

    I'm aware I can order a bag of them online (SJS sell a bag of 10 from Problem Solvers) but I only need one so thought I'd try my luck here first.

    Could head across Blackfriars bridge, up Farringdon Rd on the bike path then bang a right through Smithfield market. The lights are synced quite well so it's normally pretty quick.

    That shit boils my blood. It's a speed LIMIT not a speed requirement. Everyone is always in a rush to go nowhere fast.

    I got properly spat by a bloke on an electric scooter in Regents today. Must've been doing 45kph+

    I'm conflicted - it somehow feels safer for them to be riding at the same speed as traffic and also more dangerous. Tbf the guy did have on a helmet.

    Yes, probably the best quality jersey I own. They're quite a loose fit, so if you're looking for a skin tight aero fit they're not the one. But for long days in the saddle they're great. Really high quality zips and fabric - would recommend. Bit exxy though.

    I've got one that came with a Garmin you can have for free. I stole the little bolts that hold in the twist lock insert for another mount but you could easily source new bolts for it (or just glue it in).

    Based in Angel near Shoreditch Park.
