    I’ve heard this payroll/not payroll distinction a couple of times now but have no idea what it refers to... anyone care to explain?

    I guess this refers to people who get paid extra (above mp base salary) for doing particular jobs like organising committees etc?

    I typically print my GF a photo calendar for Christmas. Most custom calendars allow you to include calendar entries such as public holidays on specific days and then also manually input other things like birthdays etc. However, for various reasons, the calendar I do for my girlfriend needs to contain an entry on almost every day of the year. In the past I have used Vistaprint but the process for adding manual entries is crap and you can only do one at a time so it is a massive PITA and ends up taking several very dismal hours.

    Does anyone know of a company that lets you print a custom calendar (with photos etc) but that also allows you to sync with an ical or google calendar type service so that I can upload the calendar entries automatically?

    Does anyone know what derailleur hanger I need for a 2016 Focus Mares CX? I'm 99% sure it's one of these (it mentions the Mares CX after all) but there were/are a few models of Mares CX and these and these might also be compatible.

    This model focus:

    Will you be basing sales on a list, will you sell them on the lfgss shop, or something else?

    I’m sure there is lots of interest in caps but I don’t think any of the lists on this thread are representative of actual current interest... the current list is over a year old and originated when Heldring suggested a new design (https://www.lfgss.com/comments/13997579/­). Before that there have been many other lists for caps in different styles (6pt’s design, original etc) and none have come into existence.

    If you’re basing sales on the current list then i think there will be a lot of changes as new people sign up while others flake.

    Also

    using paddles to help increase the resistance and build up those muscles

    My pool bans paddles (and other toys) in public lanes so you can only use them if you are part of a private club session :-(

    I asked a similar question in the tri thread recently (all round S/C stuff, but focussed around body weights not gym) and got no response. I then asked in the Strength Training thread and was directed towards the Mark Lauren body weight training stuff (I got the app).

    It's not swim focussed but I've been following the basic all round programme for 2 weeks (30min 4x per week) and first impressions seem good although I'm slightly shocked at how weak and feeble I've become after 8 years of ultra-running and cycling.

    It’s a kind of geometric pattern made up of repeating “tiles” that fit together without overlaps or gaps.

    Also wheels for CdF are all ordered, Halo Vapour rims (black logos), SP front hub and Rear Novatec D792SB. Will use 35c G-Ones and PDW mudguards.

    Why the switch back to 700c/35mm? I'm just trying to source a cheapish 650b wheelset to try for my CdF. I want a dynamo setup but also want to play with 650b before I'm stuck with big wheels.

    Our village club has a great friendly atmosphere. We don't have the top end runners that some of our bigger rivals have but we still managed to top the county Grand Prix rankings for the men and have good representation at the pointy end of several categories in the women's events. But at the same time we welcome all comers and our weekly club runs are designed so that everyone can find something that suits them, and we have plenty of runners slower than you.

    Don't give up looking, there are loads of really welcoming clubs out there.
