    I can (just) get 28c GP4000s in but have to deflat ehe rear to put the wheel in and the front rubs a bit on the fork crown. Need to take a file to the fork crown over winter, only needs the sliveriest sliver taking off.
    The ride is really nice. Compliant without being theleast bit noodly. But no, not harsh at all.
    Although I'm not a great judge of these things, this is only my third road bike in 30 years. Rather pathetic I know, considering the company!
    I need to clean it up a bit, then I'll get a pic (or 2) up

    Vulpine polo? Merino, got pockets, nice long sleeves. I wear them for skiing. Super comfy, wash up really well at 30C. 'Bout 50 quid a pop. Only doing up to size L though

    Have a trawl through the classifieds. Someone had a pair of AVI Nu-neutrons for 150 notes, which is a steal. These are really excellent speakers.

    the Labour Party are likely to vote positively on adopting a more representational electoral system at their conference. If they do so, and they get in and actually enact that,

    Except they won't. If they get elected they suddenly think "oh! FPTP is okay after all"

    I've got two tickets to see Versengold..... im Berlin! At Huxley's Neue Welt for the 28th October (a Friday)
    I was planning to make long weekend of it but it's looking increasingly unlikely I'm going to be able to go, so if anyone can make use of them, you'll be more than welcome to them
    I'd rather they got used

    I might be able to do you a deal on a pair of 25s that have been fitted and ridden about 1km. I got them for she-who-must but they've come up a bit narrow for her. They're not the folding variety so postage could be...interesting.
    Anyone fitted them in 32c flavour? How wide do they come up?

    Also Garmin customer service. I don't think they understand what customer's are (an inconvenience, obvs) and they definitely have no concept of service.

    Fuck, no. It's dreadful. Dreary dirgey wank. Too many rugby/cricket connotations
