    So glad I'm not the only one who casually browses companies house filings for fun. Yes, I should get out more.

    But yes it's back up for sale.

    Ah cool in which case: the crankset is sub optimal for me (I need 175-180) but I'd take the rest if you have a buyer for the crankset. I'd even take the rings if needed. Dis for race beik yo ;)

    If completely necessary i would consider taking the lot tho.

    I've realised this morning that if I sell the entire group then it would leave me short for another build. I need the front and rear mechs from this group and potentially the chainset too.

    So is the whole thing for sale or not?

    Do you have a price for frame/fork/seat post?

    a challenger appears!

    Of course if you buy a bike made for someone else the first 2 points ARE moot.

    You get the filtered info directly rather than having to listen to 500 notifications about what cheese should someone bring to the birthday party.

    Are there any bears, horses, mirrors, welsh, dinosaurs, beavers or lions at the party? Because, with a little advice, you could be the funniest guy with cheese in that room...

    I think it's time to get rid of it. Signal was my first thought of what to use instead.

    I kinda guessed this would happen when the WhatsApp guys walked, leaving lots of money on the table. I haven't followed anyone for over a year, only use messenger in one group of four friends. So I deleted my FB account and I haven't missed it. I've never used WhatsApp. I use Instagram for business only (boardgame company I own with @photoben).

    Conversely I've been using Signal for ~3 years and although it's not as sharp on design it's perfectly adequate for its purpose, esp since they added giphy etc. I have heard of friends having trouble with it not notifying them on Android, but I've had no such issue on iOS or on the Desktop (Mac OS).

    Sadly the success of WhatApp means I have only maybe five people I message regularly on it, but I hope this news moves that needle a little. < insert joke about having no friends>
