    Anybody planning to put in a LB order in the near future? The additional cost they charge during checkout is appalling, considering Farsports has free EMS shipping.

    What would be a plausible figure to ask if I were to sell my wheelset? Chris King R45D hubs, Aforce AL33 disc wheels 24F/28R, handbuilt by a reputable wheelbuilder in London. Not light. Ridden about 5000 miles or so. I know it will be a loss, but how much of a loss?

    It's possible to develop a browser plugin to filter search results further, but since the results don't have the ending coordinates the plugin would then have to visit every item in the background and look for the ending coords (to decide which result to keep)... Scraping the results would be problematic in more than one way, you'd get rate limited and it may take quite bit of time depending on the number of initial results. There's pagination on the results page so you'd have to account for that as well. It can be done, but would be fairly involved.

    The Body

    Yes. Somehow I forgot about that.

    LOL. CRC has 3 more left... same price

    erm, upon closer inspection maybe not :) So I guess you bought all of them (very nice price)

    Try Dollhouse and Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles while you're at it :)

    Recently after watching/binging The Sopranos for the first time we've restarted The Wire, but paused before S1 was over (wifey was watching for the first time) and now watching Your Honor, not bad, but not an old show. Also watched "For All Mankind" in the meantime, better than I expected.

    Where does one find a powerbank to dimensions? I want it to be comfortably fit at the base/bottom of my top tube bag, take all the available horizontal space, but stay thin so I still have plenty of room left. 10,000 mAh should be OK. The area dimensions are roughly 225 x 45mm (45 can stretch a little bit, 225 is max and including plugs etc) and I want it to be no more than 10 mm in height... It's not a common dimension, most products are either too wide or too thick.

    Did anybody DIY a "link-sausage form factor" powerbank before and put it inside the downtube? Just get a few cells that fit the bill (CR123A?) and shrinkwrap them, connect them (series/parallel/separately) like sausage links and insert them in the downtube from the BB side, or if possible into the top tube from the headset side? Not sure about where to put the dis/charging circuitry though.

    I just want onboard GoPro footage without the hassle of changing batteries and/or missing footage due to forgetting to check power and/or recording status. Maybe a GoPro remote on the handlebars could be easier? Not sure and I'd still need to charge/change for power.

    I try to stay away from the IQ apps (datafields are another matter), instead I sync Komoot and RWGPS with Garmin Connect. Why? Because if you forget to load up the IQ and start recording... you have to stop it again just to access the IQ apps to choose a route, which is extra stupid.

    Edge Explore's battery life is not nearly what's claimed, a friend even exchanged his for a second unit. Got slightly better results but battery life is still sub-par compared to a 530/830.
