    A good portion probably tell the truth (also who doesn’t look on the web to check anyway before buying) but a bargain is a bargain despite the “damp” problem. I once saw a ground floor flat next to the river in Hampton Wick that had no problem at all with flooding. It was surprisingly cheap and for some reason had all sockets half way up the wall and the bedroom had a raised platform to put the bed on, limited headroom but less chance of a wet arse when it flooded (which it did every other year).

    Someone else took it. Good location, great view, cheap. They didn’t care that they’d be underwater every couple of years

    Valverde to retire at the end of the season. About time.

    The BBB tool has somewhat unclear instructions so I found the ones for the very similar shimano tool and followed those instead. that and a slightly harder whack and I fired half the BB across the floor of the office garage. So... read instructions and hit it harder.

    I'm not sure that's the whole picture. Which way do you think that the white disenfranchised working class vote went?

    Supposedly only 30% of trump supporters earn under the median wage in the US.

    Was hoping to avoid that as the route I want to print is quite long. Maybe I’ll just suck it up and buy maps.

    I must be doing it wrong or the cups are stuck as I belted it for no movement at all.

    I have a BBB pressfit removal tool and I’m not sure how hard I should be smacking it to get the cups out?

    I’m hitting it quite hard as I’m nervous about missing the bloody thing and staving in my frame. I’ve got a “normal” home hammer so maybe that’s the problem?
