    Plus you can end up with annoying cable routing situations like I have (X9 rear mech on Hook EXT-C), and I'm not totally convinced that my occasional front shift problems are not caused by the mega powerful spring in the rear mech. 10 speed sram mix n match is still the best though.

    there should probably be a selection of choice phrases in the Troubleshooting section of Haynes manuals

    Am I alone in actually quite wanting those shower gate things? Hosing down my mtb yesterday would have been a lot more comfortable in there

    a mate of mine used to ride an old Enfield Bullet, which was kickstart only. He wired up a killswitch for it that lived on the inside of an ammo box attached to the side, so on brand. That, in combination with the fact that you had to be a sort of bike-whisperer to get it to start anyway, meant it was fairly secure.

    Seconded – I've had a pretty good success rate with this.

    Also seconding the ultrasonic assessment. One of our allotment neighbour has one, which is justified because the rodents have had all our pea seedlings, but also it is super annoying. I'm 31, 6' and have played in metal bands for 15 years so really shouldn't be able to hear those things but I massively can.

    Thanks all – definitely answers my question then! Probably a good time to get on board with a battery-type

    Power tool advice: are oscillating multi-tools like have a rubbish version of all the separate tools, or are they really useful?

    Basically I don't have tonnes of space right now, so the idea of one thing that does a few jobs is very appealing. However my next proper project will be sanding back and revarnishing 200 year old floorboards, so suspect I might just have to buy/borrow/hire a specific sander.

    Powertool-wise I currently only have a jigsaw, drill, and dremel.

    To be honest I can never remember which my preferred ones are, really should note it down 😂

    I think Moving Mountains and Naked (barbecued) are my top two, with the Iceland No Bull my preferred non-extortionate option.
