    If you can't get T-Cut, try Farecla G6. Similar sort of thing.

    It is. That's why the pros have special but normal-sized SRAM kit, with larger chainrings and cassettes.

    Personally I prefer alloy. I've never had any problems with Sapim Polyax alloy nipples. I've had a few issues with brass nipples, particularly black ones, which in my experience have a nasty habit of binding even when lubricated. If you want to use black nipples then I'd definitely recommend alloy.

    24 hours in and my arm is very slightly sore. Other than that, nada.

    You'll be OK. SRAM released a new eTap 11 speed rear derailleur a while back just for replacements and recalls. Mostly recalls, I'd imagine.

    I've become very disillusioned with any trellis made of wood, as it's only a matter of time before the wood rots and the whole thing comes tumbling down. And, needless to say, trying to replace trellis when it's got plants growing up it is deeply frustrating if not impossible, as is trying to treat the wood. That's why I've started making my own trellis from 6mm solid stainless round bar. Should be good enough for my lifetime, after which it's someone else's problem.

    Had my AZ jab this afternoon. No side effects so far, and the two members of my family who've had AZ had no side effects, so I'm hoping it runs in the family. I've bought some paracetamol just in case, but at the moment I'm self-medicating with Montepulciano d'Abruzzo.

    1.0 or the fire-breathing 1.3 model?

    If you need the end of the tube machined I can do that for you on a milling machine with a tube block.

    "Inkl. rustfri skruer, gummiringe og rawplugs."

    I'm assuming gummiringe are rubber washers?
