    I can only think of one company in town likely to have a soulless office building, security fences, and a sculpture of warplanes...

    Just searched for locks to get a recommendation for a lock for the wee man's bike (next size up from this). Ideally a combination lock so various adults can open it.

    EL council are consulting about cycling infra in Musselburgh. If anyone has any opinions, they can be given via: https://musselburghactivetoun.info

    Some of the options look pretty good to me, although I'm not keen on the tw0-way cycle tracks they are proposing in lots of places as they can be a nightmare to leave/join except at the ends.

    Yesterday I thought I’d clean out the old gunk from my tyres after a year of going tubeless it was a bit minging but ok. Bit of a bastard getting the seal again with just a track pump (used an inner tube to get half the bead on properly first) but I felt job done. Just went out to the garage to do the recycling and discover it sitting there with a puddle of gunk under the back wheel.

    Remind me why tubeless is a good again? Sigh

    Thanks (and had totally forgotten to check back - soz!). The Big Ben Plus looks like a good option, 23£ at wiggle so not too pricey.

    Hey tyre fans! Our bike trailer keeps getting punctures. Trailer currently has no-name 20" x 2 1/8" tyres. Any recommendation for that size (or close enough) with a decent amount of puncture proofing?

    Two legs rather than four, apparently, though it seems that's a convention only really observed in British heraldry.

    Nice clue ;)

    90% sure I know this one - if the weather holds I will be in the area on Sunday morning!

    For indyref #1 I started off as a no, but had some sympathy for independence. In the end, I ended up voting yes. One part of my calculus was: EU membership for iScotland would likely happen shortly after independence, thus travel/trade etc with former UK would be fine.

    Should there be indyref #2, who knows? With everything going on, I don't have the brain space to think about such things. (TBH I am hoping that there isn't going to be a referendum too soon, even though my starting position would be a yes)
