    You can try. But if they tell you to piss off, what do you do?

    You're entitled to details of the building insurance cover for free - section 30A of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 and the Schedule to the Act.

    Right, a big fuck you is the answer to that.

    Schedule 11 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 contains provisions which require administration charges which are payable under the terms of your lease to be reasonable. Charging for something you might do, but you might not, would not be reasonable. If the £90 isn't payable under the terms of the lease, on what basis are they claiming to be entitled to it?

    I'd like to - @Cycliste has done it, but I never have. But it's the day after the Tour Transalp finishes, and while we'll conveniently be in Italy at the time, doing the Maratona straight after the Tour Transalp might be a bit of a big ask.

    Remember when probikekit (I think) had 1p a metre outer cable and they shipped it to someone on here? Great day, that. I seem to remember there being something negatively priced somewhere, so they paid you to buy it. They honoured that too.

    That was the outer cable. -1p per metre. I ordered 40 metres, and got it. Not going to have to buy outer gear cable for a few years...

    What the dithering fuck is going on?

    A classic 'punt it down the line' fudge from both sides, it would appear.

    It will also have messed with the geo, so expect it to ride weird.

    A friend of mine has a gaspipe special he crashed and steepened the head angle by many degrees. Big ripples in the downtube and toptube. That was many years ago, and he's still riding it. Loves the way it handles too.

    Natch. I like the SuperSpokes suggestion. Silly but nice boutique hubs and impractical rims should be held together by ultra-niche superlight spokes. It's only right.

    What sort of adhesive am I looking for? I never want it to move again

    3M DP460. But surface prep is going to be more important than the type of adhesive. A superb adhesive with shit surface prep is still going to give a shit bond. But if you use it properly, then if you can break a DP460 bond in shear you should enter the world's strongest man competition ASAP.
