    Painted mudguards are such a terrible idea.

    If we're allowed to post actual stuff about riding on this thread, I spent a lot of last week riding my (formerly Amey's aside from the frame + a number of other bits) GRVL bike in the vicinty of the South Downs and was great. It included plenty of genuine gravel and minimal stuff where I'd have been better off with a hardtail. Might try whole South Downs Way next weekend if it doesn't rain.

    Thank you - the glue is quite dried out so will hopefully come off pretty easily.

    Anyone tried this? https://www.sneakerscience.co.uk/product­s/sneakerser-sole-bonder-sneaker-restora­tion-transplant-glue
    Or should I be looking for something more industrial?

    Good chance it may take me another six months to get round to it... but will see. The soles of my favourite cycling shoes have just started to pull away from the upper so I need to buy some suitable glue anyway.
    Am unclear how much leeway there is in attaching a non jordan v sole and getting it to fit. I assume there's some flexiblity, particularly if I can remove some of the glue marks roudn the edge.

    Had a spare 15 minutes so began phase 1 of Jordan V sole swapping.
    No idea what I'm going to do next. Will have a look what old shoes I have in the attic that I could use as a donor. Or maybe just use them as slippers. Not that bothered about trying to restore them properly, would rather do something fun with them.

    Thanks but rethinking this now as not sure I have tyre clearance either way. Plus already have a tortec one on another bike that is should try first.

    Had AZ on Saturday. Was all set to be knocked out for the whole of Sunday based on everything I've heard from friends, online, etc, but had literally no side effects whatsoever - not even a sore arm.

    Short answer is obviously 'no'.

    Longer answer is get an Airnimal if you want something that folds but is also moderately tolerable to ride with drop bars.

    Thank you - I'm so out of touch with modern lego. Though am rapidly learning.
    I feel like maybe I should just get her the lego equivalent of celiing beams and a load of long planks and encourage her to build them up properly. Got her to watch a youtube video on lego and architecture yesterday and she's now saying she wants to be an architect.
    After getting slightly carried away on ebay she's got two harry potter lego sets and the car with motors coming for her birthday, so this will probably keep her busy for a while. Plus I have an extra Harry Potter Great hall I need to resell having accidentally bought two.
