    Moved to somewhere hilly and now my PreCursa isn’t the best as a daily hack.. Looking for a 26 in (ideally) steel MTB frame with disc mount and uni crown fork to make a functional daily. Does anything like this exist? Anything like this exist? Otherwise will just go down the converted retro MTB and forgo the discs.

    Excellent - thanks for recommendations all.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a tailor for a bespoke morning suit for my wedding? Looking to get something that has a similar silhouette to my grandfathers one from the 50’s but without the very baggy trousers. Should add that I’m Bath based, but would be willing to travel for somewhere decent.

    Lidl have bodum gooseneck kettles on for £30 - not sure if any good but seems decent value

    Hi Steve, is there any of this left? Would be keen to take a kg off your hands - would you be able to send it ground? Cheers

    Crust type setup is where I got the inspiration from - just trying to think of ways of doing it for less money/with a rack ive already got to hand.

    @tallsam the rack would mount at the top of the fork but the Pelago’s come with a variety of mountings which i’d Try and invert. Failing that I’d get someone to fabricate a new bracket.

    Got a plan in my head to build a functional load carrying rigid MTB. Was thinking of using a smaller wheel (24” if 26” frame, 26” if a 29” frame) on the front with suspension corrected fork to compensate in order to create a larger space to fit stuff on the top of my pelago commuter rack. Is this doable/a terrible idea/will create certain death trap?

    What size, how much and where are you based?

    Any recommendations for workplace coffee? Bean to cup preferred, would receive fairly heavy usage. We’re currently paying around £500 a month for a pretty bad machine - would we be able to get a bean-to-cup machine with that?

    Who makes these? Been thinking of ways to make an old MTB a better load carrier and something like this would be ideal. Do you think it would be possible to make one with a slightly higher platform for 20/24 inch wheels?
