    I'd be interested to hear people like the Pixel 3s after a week or two of use, once the shiny-new feeling has worn off

    I also considered the Pocophone. I'm used to the finger print reader on the back and quite like it.

    How good is the face-unlock on the OnePlus 6T and how good is the in-screen fingerprint sensor? @Bainbridge @villa-ru

    Interested to hear how you like it after a few days. Thinking of getting one -- the screen and spec is good for money.

    Anyone tried the Pixel 3?

    It gets really hot in summer. On the eastern side of the coastal range, you're looking at 35 celsius during the day. Also lots of forest fires this year (summer 2018). I'm quite jealous, having been to the area, but not ridden it. The scenery, the nature, the rivers, the lakes, are amazing. Hope you like trees and hills!

    On the coast it's maybe 20ish and misty quite often. But also beautiful and clean. The sea is too cold to swim. The 101 has quite a bit of traffic.

    Nice looking route. Wouldn't mind joining this sometime. I ride the hills to the north east section now and again. They're steep, but OK, on fixed-gear. The whole thing looks pretty tough. Does/would anyone ride fixed? I'm wondering if I could keep up ;)

    You missed the part about buying expensive bike parts and selling them on again at a loss when you realize you don't need them / you want a change / you don't ride it anyway

    Otherwise, good one.

    I've had a bunch good experiences buying / swapping / donating from people on here over the past few years.

    Recently:

    @platypus --for the chain ring

    @frankohara -- for the wheelset

    And from a while ago:

    @mr_lunch -- for the 26 inch fork a while ago. This is on my son's bike
