    will hit you up as project progresses, think it's the same year as a tricross in the thread, thank you!

    if my current langster 2014/2015 has a conical headset cap and i wanted to put a flat one on it, would i simply have to buy one, any one, the same size or does it go deeper than this?

    i'm quite fond of the double tap, especially on the 1x with the clutch derailleur. I assume if you were a perfect cadence chaser you'd be infuriated by it as you can over swing when shifting quite easily, especially when tired. never noticed any dropped gears and it's safe to say the only time the RD gets touched is when it's with the bike people (ashamedly)

    a lot of my friends shudder at the thought of it who have used shimano for most their riding lives, but being newer to riding geared bikes without muscle memory i've found it quite intuitive/ utilitarian for my needs.

    I was on my last loo roll last night so popped out this morning for a packet, did not expect having to visit 5 stores, people really are going into a melt down. I was about to go 'eco friendly' and give up all hope before trying iceland.

    Maybe we'll get another of these behavioural science based nudges in 2 months where we're told to donate our covid stock piles to the local food bank, realising we really did not need to buy 12 packets of gluten free pasta.

    Why is it always those in hi-vis, full lycra and a pannier on the back that love to suck your wheel then shoot past without even a call as you approach a light

    I know it's been a tough few months weather wise and a few Sunday club runs have been cancelled, but this is the commute, not the peloton

    A little 'on your right' would be enough

    It's so frustrating that our lives are at the hands of people who
    massively overestimate their ability to drive even to the complete
    minimum standard (safety), & how little we can get through to people
    like that, as they immediately go on the attack when they're
    'threatened'. They just don't have any empathy.

    can emphasise here, glad you managed to put some distance between you and them.

    Had an incident similar to this a week or so ago, gave him a knock on the bonnet to wake him up at the lights as he didn't seem to react to anything (including other cars), he gets incredibly arrogant and aggressive. From this point I decide to take another route to avoid him doing something silly, but he follows and throws a full 2L bottle at me (was fine, anticipated it when i saw him in my peripheral)

    It's irritating because unless you spend a few hundred pounds on equipment to cover yourself for even a chance at prosecution, you're just at the mercy of drivers getting out the right side of bed

    progression of my track bike over the last few months, most recently the addition of a rack. seems a bit redundant atm as I put it on to avoid sweaty rucksack back but it seems to just be cold and wet 24/7?
