    I left notts/derby back in 2012. How was the velodrome in the end?

    The UKPolitics subreddit is absolutely intolerable when the Labour Party situation comes up, all these little toads crawl out of the woodwork jerking each other off about how the labour parties problems are all because of 'wokeism', and whenever anyone brings up the survey that only like 6% of voters gave the slightest of fucks about that issue, it gets downvoted into invisibility.

    Since the EU elections in 2014 the sub got brigaded hard by 4chan UKIP supporters all claiming to be ex labour but labour went too politically correct for them so they abandoned all their social and economic views and became right wingers. Of course they never fucked off.

    Posting here as recommended from Any Question Answered, had a search through the thread but couldn't find anyone else raising the same issue - bibs for long upper bodied people:

    Any bib short brands recommended for people with long upper bodies / midriffs? Just had to return an expensive pair of Assos shorts as despite being in the height range for that size, the shorts ended up so low they felt very uncomfortable and lower stomach area visible below the line of my jersey. Not a good look.

    Very little stock available in stores here in Helsinki so I'll need to be ordering online as I won't be able to try anything on.

    First 16km commute after 3 months of almost no riding due to illness. So weak. Pathetic.

    Whoever at LCC that controls their reddit account needs a bit of a talking to.

    Can anyone recommend a decent bike trailer? Just need something to take the cardboard to the recycling place a couple of km away.

    Was thinking this: https://www.vidaxl.fi/e/vidaxl-polkupyor­an-perakarry-65-kg-musta-ja-keltainen-/8­718475701361.html

    But wondering what benefits a significantly more expensive option like this would offer: https://www.xxl.fi/croozer-croozer-cargo­-trailer-croozer-cargo-kalle-pyorakarry-­vihrea/p/1184943_1_style

    Sorry for the elvish langauge, btw.

    he almost murdered his own son by throwing him under the wheels of a passing cyclist. "Why can't they get a horse?" he demanded on Room 101.

    Wait, is there a real story here? And TF the BBC put that racist heroin needle on Room 101?

    Might toothpaste and a rag be helpful in this case?

    Sorry for late reply but this did the job PERFECTLY. Really surprised that rubbing it with a cloth did nothing at all, but adding a tiny bit of toothpaste and the stuff came off right away, like magic.

    Soooo relieved! Thanks everyone!

    Weird, I got the impression Laser were for wide heads? It seems Laser totally dominate the market here in finland, most bike shops seem to seem to sell almost exclusively Laser helmets. with a few very expensive Giro options and super cheap unknown brands. I shall have to try some on.
