    I moved out west from London nearly 2 years ago, we settled on Frome because my partner and I wanted to try living in a small town. Frome is lovely, nice shops, pretty streets and prior to lock down a good social scene. but Frome is a town of two halves, the new-comers trying to change and revive what was once a sleepy market town and the people who have lived there forever. those people as you would expect don't like "the out of town folk" (obvs not all of the people). In my experience those people were annoyed we were drinking in their pubs, happy to tell me that ppl like me have raised house prices and kept asking my "foreign Mrs" what's she gonna do after Brexit. we were there a year and we met some great ppl but ultimately we ended up in Bristol which we love.

    This may not be helpful but I normally ride a 56cm (Im 6ft 1) and I ended up going with the XL size (supposedly 58cm) and it fits fine even with a decent amount of seat post.

    Hey, i have a buillitt and when my little one was in a car seat i put it in rear facing with the base secured with giant racket straps. then slide the seat into place like you would do in a car with a seat belt. i also have the canopy which added a bit of security. or maxi cosi do a frame like the one picture- i didnt have a maxi cosi car seat so didn't use one

    Ive got a macmini 7 for sale i5 2.8GHz CPU and 8GB Ram and 1TB Fusion drive, never opened.
    i bought it for a media server project that i never got round to doing, still with the cellophane, i'm looking for £400 as i know the new ones are out now and they are shinier, lighter, sexier and all round better.

    @BrickMan i was wondering the same thing, my Bullitt is great but fully loaded on the hills can be a problem. i've seen a couple of options but them seem expensive.
