    I see, well it's all speculation I suppose, but sounds valid enough. I know nothing about how these pricing cycles work.

    Thinking about getting an RTX card for training myself up in real-time visitation. If anyone sees any mega bargains on 2070 Super/2080 in the next couple of months, please give me a heads up. £500 on a GPU still feels a bit steep to me at the moment with no immediate payback. Apparently Nvidea might be announcing the next generation of Ampere cards in autumn so I'm hoping their old ones will fall in price a bit.

    Found out today that my employer won't refund the £35 I've spent on running their computer since lockdown started. This comes on top of a voluntary 20% pay cut. My good will is wearing thin.

    Is this cone shot? I realised I don't really know what pitting looks like.

    They're Terrevail Cannonball 650b x 40 kindly passed on by @furious_tiles. They measure up a touch under on these rims, and we're pretty much maxed out at the rear (photo is a little misleading as the wheels not quite square). I think you'd be ok with 650x42 slicks, just. There's some vertical height so I may put the mudguards back on if this British summer prevails, doubt I'll be tackling anything too knarly on this, more of a gravel capable road bike I guess.

    Proper Trigger's Broom now, this. Not one component left from the original build. I was actually looking at the Casserole before I got there Soma, but I got a bike fit and my size was sold out. One of the shifter bosses fell off the Soma at the start of lockdown, then I spotted this on Ebay, fairly straight forward swap and the geo is very similar.

    Need to finish the cabling, get a 30.0 seat clamp, and possibly nicer a seat post.

    +1 Scarpa, much comfy and no breaking in, just got my other half some.

    Going to Buxton next week, any recommendations for not too intense <10mile walks?

    Also, is there a way to download other people's routes from viewranger, or am I stuck re-drawing them myself?

    Battery life on the G8 if fantastic, quite large though, the G8 play might fit the bill?

    it's the raw files that appear different to the screen image when taking the photo, but that was my thought. Photoshop interprets things through the working colour space, I guess snapseed doesn't work in the same way. Might try that lightroom mobile app, I think it's free.
