    fits BB30, gearing 46-30 or thereabouts, road q factor, under 100 pounds

    Shimano FC-RX600, although it will probably be slightly over £100 once you've added a BB30 adapter. Q is 5mm more than Shimano road cranks

    it does look pretty boss

    Paired-spokes make me think of the £300 price point, not £6k

    Is there a reason Moto(rola) aren't a Chinese brand by your definition?

    Not my definition, hers. I tried explaining that most phones are substantially Chinese regardless of brand or location of final assembly. She has been drinking the Trump Kool-Aid with respect to China, so mere facts are not a consideration 🤷♂️

    Low/mid-range Android for a friend who wants something bigger and better than a rather ancient iPhone. I'm thinking Nokia 6.2, Sony Xperia L4, Moto G8, Samsung Galaxy A21 as a starting point for consideration. Any blindingly obvious sins of omission or commission, bearing in mid that she's not going to touch a Chinese brand with a 10 foot pole?

    got really confused about how flecks of aluminium had gotten past me when I was building my wheels, then past the tubeless tape and into the tyre. Spent ages picking them all off the rim.

    You wouldn't have been so confused if you'd ever had a lapdance from somebody wearing body glitter. That stuff gets everywhere and sticks around for months 🙂

    your line level output will struggle to provide the voltage to all your little amps

    You'd need to look at specific numbers, but with power amp input impedance typically being in the 50-100kΩ range, it would be a pretty weak pre-amp which really struggled to drive the quarter of that which 4 power ampsin parallel would present.

    If there's nothing grossly wrong with the mechanical set up, then braking comes down to the performance of the friction pair. Pads are easily changed, but the rim is the other half of the friction pair and has its own part to play. At the least, it's as well to try different pad compounds to see which one plays nicely with a particular rim.

    I have R730 on my Hirame and they're fine🤷♂️

    I don't think the TRP #tartmode caliper is going to make much, if any, difference. If something in your brake system is deficient, I'd go looking elsewhere rather than spending £100 on new calipers.

    cheapest I can find is about £110

    Spa have them for £105, but I'm not sure what the TRP ones are doing functionally which isn't done just as well by Tektro 737 for £60 less

    The Corvette has steering operated by a knob on the back, so it's easy to drive around the table £24 in the argos sale
