    I tried the KFC vegan burger yesterday. At £4 I wouldn’t bother unless it was all you could get. It’s like a cheap southern fried Quorn pattie you could get in Iceland, vegan mayo and a small amount of lettuce. With all the salsas, hashbown patties etc they have, they could have done something much better imo.

    Missed my bike quite a lot this morning as my toddler excitedly put on his crash helmet in anticipation, and I did a sadface inside as I took him to the car.

    Edit. From a driver’s perspective: people are driving like real dicks in this weather - ride safely, folks.

    Ah fuuuck man, wish you'd asked/moaned in the cargo bikes thread first. I could have slung you my spare crankset and bb and some grips in the post.

    I actually had some of them but didn't have much success. I found the ratchet mechanisms a bit weak and they jammed and tangled up regularly. I'm used to full-size ratchet straps, so maybe my expectations were a bit high!

    The black Thule straps with the metal catches in Halfords are spendy but excellent. My original set are over 15 years old and have had some abuse. Strong enough to use as straps to lift an engine out a car.

    Great write-ups, always love reading about this ride! I was going to ask what happened with the road rash - sorry to hear that @jaeyukdapbap, hope it’s not serious.

    Bar a few components, this looks properly timewarp. Yeah that was a lot of money but anything new at that price is completely soulless. Really looking forward to the rebuild.

    Carbon hat on: that chain damage doesn’t look anything worse than some deep rash. By all means get it checked out but I don’t think it’s anything to worry about.

    Funny the dog question should come up, I had a small yappy dog go for my ankle last week and I was going to ask what everyone else did. Only had one other incident like that when the dog was actually going for me and it was about 10 years ago, but every time I stopped it backed off and every time I went to run on, it attacked again. So it’s not like it happens all the time.

    It’s not like you can even use dog logic with a lot of those stupid yappy dogs. I don’t think their brains are big enough.
