    Raleigh padded bike bag with wheel inserts £15

    Was £30 new and that was quite a good price. Has been used a grand total of once to transport my bike in a van. It's located in Cardiff and doesn't fold up that well, but I think Hermes can deliver for well less than a tenner.

    Also Carradice Carradry panniers -free. They've had a tough life at the hands of my other half, but they have some life in them still, the hardware is basically bombproof so they'll probably last for ages really. Again, pickup in Cardiff or post at cost.

    I used the one a few posts up. I seem to remember I tried a couple lest year and one had better results than the other, though I can't find the other now and not sure which was the better one! I also used fresh yeast to speed things up a bit.

    First panettone of the year. Much like my first attempt last year I think I baked too fast and rise was a little lacklustre. Crumb and flavour is lovely though. Need to order some more cases to have another crack at it.

    Any ideas what would be a sensible amount of fresh yeast to substitute for the 60g sourdough in this pannetone recipe?

    Will a derailleur even shift between the cogs on a DOS? I did once consider doing this kind of thing with just a single speed kit and some kind of spring loaded tensioner, so I could use a vertical dropout frame I had. Never got around to it though.

    You would. You can set a room as 'bedroom' and assign the Thermostat to that if that's where it's placed. It would call for heat when the temp drops below specified and the room would heat up. The problem comes when you want to heat another room, but not the bedroom, as any time one of the other TRV calls for heat it would mean the bedroom heats up too, as there's nothing to stop the flow in to that radiator.

    You could cap the temp in the bedroom with a regular TRV I guess but then you potentially have a situation of the thermostat is calling for heat to the bedroom and the 'manual' TRV not allowing it to flow through the radiator. If all the other [tado] TRVs are also closed at the point I don't think that would be very good for your boiler / system.
