    Is it a bargain though? I bought and sold two of those frames for about £20 each, albeit much worse condition. They're not the same as the legendary American brand, although it was very light, the 853 version looked nice too. Possibly made by Merlin. Very similar to my old Malt2 from memory.

    I fear they would judge my cable management.

    I think it's still ok, probably just a very cold kitchen. Turns out a PC rendering a 200 frame animation make a great bread prover.

    Can instant yeast go stale? It's still within BBE date but was opened a long time ago. It seems very slow in this Focaccia I'm making.

    Edit - not furloughed for now! (probably a good thing)

    That a list of ingredients, that's the easy bit. I suspect that, like hummus, there's something in that method that's critical to getting the consistency right.

    Anyone make their own peanut butter? I've tried and failed before but have a better food processor now. All the recipes I've seen look a bit smooth but I guess it would just be a matter of retaining some bigger chunks and mixing it with the fully blended stuff.

    True, probably not worth worrying about. I'm still working as much as I ever was, and I can barely manage 20 mins a day yoga, not to mention allotment/garden/design projects. I never was very fast anyway so nothing to lose.

    It could be that the smaller 650b is resulting is less trail accentuating the flop. I'm not fully clued up on how one affects the other though. I have a touch too much flop on my conversion, it self steers a bit too much on sharp corners, but that's because the fork is a bit too long for the frame and the headangle is already slightly slack. It equates to a decent ride as long as you're used to it and don't suddenly slam it in to corners.

    I guess trail (more=more straight line stability) balances flop (more= more power steering effect) and we're both a bit too far in to the flop direction. This can be a desirable effect but it sounds like it's a bit too much on your bike for the style of riding you're doing, as I say I'm no expert and I'm not even sure how pneumatic trail plays in to this (or whether it is even real!).

    I guess I've missed the boat for getting any kind of 'smart' turbo in the near future?
