    Skating for us. That's me in the photo, waddling along like a fat duck on skis.

    Supposed to be heading back to airport now, but the sun's out and I'm enjoying my XC skiing. Time to book a new flight for tomorrow.

    Thread a tap down the bolt hole to chase the thread once you've drilled out everything except the thread of the seized bolt.

    Andermatt and Oberwald this weekend. The off-piste is heavily tracked but still fairly fluffy.

    aisle after aisle, ffs!

    I liked 'maitre a tube to another'.

    'Table for two tubes, sir? Certainly, please follow me.'

    Shows there is quite some difference between drive side and non drive side deflection, implying there is noticeable flex in the spindle, right?

    Measurable is not the same as noticeable. Changes in neutrino flows are measurable. They are not noticeable.

    I've got a SIP 3hp 150 litre belt-drive compressor in my workshop and a Clarke 100l 3hp belt drive compressor at home. Both are good. Get the largest and most powerful you can, but avoid oilless or direct drive as they're bogging noisy.

    Since we're comparing 24mm steel with 30mm aluminium, there's about 20% difference in torsional and bending stiffness for the same length spindle with the same ratio of OD to wall thickness

    On 24mm steel spindles I can detect 0nm defection due to spindle flex. Whatever percentage it is, x% of nothing is still nothing.

    Did you do back to back testing with 24mm and 30mm spindle chainsets then? Struggling at present to see how the spindle diameter could affect anything other than crank stiffness, and even then not any appreciable degree.

    Cheers. I'll measure the heads of the Shimano spokes when I get back home. Fingers crossed...
