    Haha! Oh no! Oh bless him, that's simultaneously a bit sad but also fucking hilarious. True dedication to the art.

    Nice to hear Lynchman's been doing well these past few years

    Hasn't been looking at enough photos of Atom Willard, that's the problem.

    Look at the pure unalloyed joy on this man's face, @mattyc ! this could be you! https://www.instagram.com/p/CcYgWNfv1r4/­

    Or, you know, it could be me, if even that's not enough to make you want them :p

    Hello! Is this still available? I'm having an urgent mid-life crisis and have a desperate need to learn to play the drums like Atom Willard. This is the exact kit I was looking at buying.

    I don't want to step on @mattyc's toes (or anyone else's) if it's still under consideration, though!

    Do you find it stable enough, if it's not attached to the wall in any way? I've read a few reviews and I'm sure I'm overthinking it, but I can just imagine it crashing down in the night!

    I had the same concern, and it was unfounded. The base flares outwards away from the wall, as well as parallel to it. I always made sure I put the heavy bikes on the bottom just in case, but they never felt in any danger of falling over.

    If I had children I might have second thoughts, but if nobody's going to be using them as impromptu gym equipment then they're very stable. I'd trust one of these over one of the straight pole things that press against the floor and the ceiling.

    Anyone know of any vertical wall mounting options with no drilling required? My landlord won't let me drill the wall and it's a very small apartment, my bikes are getting in the way now

    I have 2x gravity stands that are surplus to requirements, similar to the ones @Coops suggested, if you're still looking for something. They hold 2 bikes each and I have attached a photo.

    I got them for free from @cake years and years ago, who I think got them in turn from somebody else on the forum, and you, too, could have your very own forum-approved gravity stands for free, in the endless circle of gravity stand forum life. PM if you're interested.

    aww, possibly not - I'm looking at the Microcosm code and I think only images are allowed (though I could be looking in the wrong places).

    Could just be a one off problem though

    Every time I've ordered from them the entire experience has been a clusterfuck from start to finish, and that's in pre-COVID times. The stuff eventually does show up, but it's always late and they never ever tell you what's going on.

    I reckon those courgettes will be a 2021 job!

    I do have a script for my special The Flannan Isles mystery. Shall I link it for you so you can read that?

    Oh god yes please that would be magical thank you!
