    Are people really signing up explicitly to pay a disposal fee on the assumption that it will not be applied?

    My employer outsources it now too, to a company called Wider Wallet which I find ironic as it seems like they are out to open your wallet wide and help themselves.

    I did take a £400 voucher (for cranks and a truing stand) before it was through Wider Wallet and I didn't have to pay the disposal fee but there's noway I'm signing up to it again on an assumption.

    The wording from Wider Wallet is so fucking vague, it's something along the lines of "After your hire period your employer may allow you to keep the equipment and if they do there may be a disposal fee to pay which will be calculated blah blah blah". I don't know why anyone would sign up to something so vague (well actually I do, most of my colleagues are the kind of total morons that need to concentrate to read Daily Mail articles so no fucking surprise they haven't read the Ts and Cs).

    Nah ISMs are quite different to SMPs. Quite different to any other saddle really.

    I think if they suit you then they are incredible saddles, have a mate who swears by them.

    Thanks for thinking of me but I’m back on normal saddles after one of the ISMs I had wore a new hole in me!

    Good price though. Was looking at them on eBay a lot and that’s pretty competitive.

    Do I remember seeing somewhere in this thread that you had brazed a set of these 'tig weld' track ends into one of your frames?

    I got one! Was riding past the bike coop place today, limping home because my pedal bearings were loose, totally not planning on going in but I just heard a little voice... ”...come in, there’s something for you...” and there it was.

    £10 so not super cheap and chrome so I’ll need to file/sand that off to braze on It but the steerer clamp thing is so neat!

    I don't want to add redundant values.

    Excuse my total ignorance of how apps work, is there a downside to adding more values? Just the app I was talking about with the cadence calculator goes up to 90t on the chainring and 60t on the sprocket.

    I presume the app does the maths for each combination as and when it is dialled in rather than there being a list of responses?
