    I don't disagree with this actually. Ramming someone off their bike causing injury and threatening them with a machete must carry some pretty serious charges. The risk vs reward ratio is all wrong - there's a reason organised crime gangs have moved into fly tipping (risk of a few fines is pretty low risk vs the profit potential). If the idiots are going to risk some very hefty criminal charges then they might as well go all in and steal things of higher resale value.

    Think the only difference is in wet conditions. Squirt immediately vacates your chain if the ground is soaking and it's getting sprayed continuously. Smoove is much better in wet conditions, but is slightly gunkier than Squirt.

    Yeah that's fine mate, they all get listed as separate sensors and you can change the name to make sure you're connected to the correct one. I swap between different sensors on different bikes daily.

    Bingo. Reeks of white privilege.

    Depressingly we all know it'll end up with an extra charge of "resisting arrest".

    And what happens when you reach for your phone and the cop assumes you're reaching for a weapon?

    This feels like really poor advice from an out of touch copper who is deflecting from a systemic failure.

    Has anyone experienced a crankset bolt loosening off despite being torqued up properly?

    I've got a BB30 crankset that has been remarkably quiet for several years but has recently started creaking a lot. It seems the self extracting bolt keeps working itself out and introducing play into the BB. Should I just torque it up tighter (currently going up to 40nm) or should I perhaps look at replacing the bolt? For what it's worth I've also applied some threadlocker on the bolt but it still seems to work itself loose after a hard effort.

    Did it sit for a long time without being charged? From what I understand lithium ion batteries don't like this. It's quite likely the battery cells have degraded which is why you're seeing worse battery life than a more regularly used unit.

    I've always lusted after one of these frames but unfortunately I'm far too short for this one. GLWS
