    This is good to hear. I have some coming my way.

    I tried to make tubs work for daily riding - just because I had a set of Campag wheels I really liked.

    In the real world...

    Punctures are infrequent enough (pinch punctures almost never happen) but Vitoria sealant and a taped tyre are relatively expensive, a big faff and carrying them gets old.

    That said, there are other sealants now - perhaps trustworthy enough so you can forgo a spare tyre maybe ... I can’t really comment.

    I ended up using tougher types of tubular tyres for fewer flats. But this somewhat cancelled-out the ‘feel’ of tubs (which you can totally get now with the right clinchers anyway).

    I definitely wouldn’t bother.

    That’s very kind but I think I was mistaken in thinking I had a 6700 cassette on the wheel. It was just a 6700 lockring and a 5600 cassette probably.

    He will get precisely zero Trump base voters to vote for him.

    It might depend on what he decides he thinks today and his medication.

    He has been on/off supportive of Trump and popular with his base.

    Ideal. This is what I was after.

    I think I have a 5600 cassette here with a 6700 lock ring then.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks.

    I thought I’d replace a cassette this evening. Turns out I’m stuck with Ultegra 6700 cassettes forever ... or replacement wheels.

    But which 10sp cassettes fit?

    I think the cassette I’ve removed is 12-30t Ultegra 6700.

    I have a Shimano FH7801 rear hub.

    I have a HG50 11-36t cassette.

    Both are 10sp. I’m aware this hub ‘will only fit 10sp’, however I’m finding that isn’t the whole story ... and this particular 10sp cassette doesn’t fit!

    I’d like a similar 10sp cassette for that hub. Is there an extensive chart for Shimano hub/cassette compatibility online?

    They didn't poll universal broadband?

    Covid lockdown has exposed the unequal access to online home-schooling, online help and services (such as public info, foodbank details or supermarkets offering delivery).

    Like coin-operated electricity meters ... many struggling families buy relatively expensive data top-ups. With kids off school they're spending more than they can afford.

    This is really nice. Probably pretty light with a pedal change.

    What are the wheels?
