    Hardly unusual though. Most police officers I've met have only a very hazy grasp of what the law is, and mostly just make it up as they go along.

    That's not the guidelines, that's the law. Government guidance supplements that, but is just that - guidance. Not binding.

    So that'll be the EU26 pretty soon then.

    I don't know, I think the leopard skin really suits him. Bit heavy with the mascara though.

    #amr2020 appears to have become adopted by members of a pyramid scheme selling cosmetics.

    If you're shortening it at the lever end, you'll definitely need the bleed kit. You'll also need the adaptor to connect the fluid cup that fits onto the lever (Shimano part # Y0C698050 or equivalent) if one didn't come with your brake kit.

    You can shorten Shimano hoses at either end. The system is the same at both ends - barb/olive/compression nut. The advantage to doing it at the caliper end is that if you're careful you might get away without having to bleed the system at all, and if you do have to bleed it then it should be fairly straightforward as the lever (the hardest part in the system to get rid of air) should remain full of fluid.

    You don't need the TL-BH62. I've just used the little yellow blocks that come with the retail kits held together with a small G-clamp and a small soft-faced mallet to drive the barb home. The Lifeline tool looks good FRM though - I could be tempted that that. The Park combined cutter and barb-inserter tool looked very tempting, until I saw the price.

    He said "It depends on each individual's fitness." and followed it up by "I would have thought that for most, a walk of up to an hour, or a run of 30 minutes, or a cycle ride between that, depending on their level of fitness, is appropriate...".

    Since their is no racing to watch, what about a discussion of who are your favorite riders of the last decade, and why?

    Thomas de Gendt. Who doesn't love a breakaway? If you love breakaways, you've got to love TdG.
