    this is haunting my ebay watch list

    Someone on Retrobike is trying to identify one of these: https://www.retrobike.co.uk/threads/can-­somebody-tell-me-what-brant-it-is.432832­/

    Can you remember what it is?

    They can afford it, no problem. I just wonder if, with the budget caps coming in, we’re seeing the beginnings of a litigation era in F1. Essentially, if another team trashes your car and you can ‘prove’ it’s their fault, I can see teams trying to demand that the party at fault pays for the damage so it doesn’t come out their own budget. Before, they just brushed it off and pulled out the spare chassis and nothing more was said. There’s a lot more at stake for the top teams if it’s the difference between winning and losing the championship.

    What bike do I look out for,
    for next time?

    Quite often on a black Russian track bike, with or without the disc:

    I would use the word "curiously" rather than "suspiciously".

    Yeah, poor wording on my part. Very rapid drop though.

    Number of cases seem to be dropping suspiciously quickly. I don’t think we’ve seen case numbers drop so dramatically even in full lockdown. So there was a bit of a jump after the football, the schools breaking up has had a fairly large effect on the 0-19 group which presumably has a dramatic knock-on effect on spreading it to parents. But what else? A big push for more vaccinations in the 20-39 age group?

    It’ll be plenty for bike tyres. If it’s literally only going to be for that though, had you considered the myriad of Li Ion powered tyre pumps out there? If you’re prepared to spend that much, you could probably get a Makita/DeWalt/Ryobi etc and you’ll then be set up with a battery and charger which is cross-compatible with various tools like drills, saws, impact wrenches, shop vac etc etc should you ever want anything like that in the future. May be worth thinking about. It’ll be way smaller than a compressor and won’t need to be plugged in.

    Are you sure you want a reservoir as small as 8 litres? I’d be inclined to get the 24 litre size as a minimum. You’ll be able to do some spraying and stuff with the bigger one. That small one will struggle to run most air tools.
