    ITM Visia doesn't look too shabby - understated, not massive and i think it's 10deg. High on bikes have had them going pretty cheap on their ebay store for a couple of years.

    Saying that, I went from one of them to one of these: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/ahead-11-8-3­18-stem-black-id_8529483.html

    Thrifty man's superleggero?

    Not a network person either but presumably your other/old DHCP server is no longer acting as one? And what length of time was the DHCP server providing IPs for? Usually lease is renewed after 24hrs, but not sure what'd happen if lease time was set to 0 (i.e. forever) on the old DHCP server?

    Have you restarted the devices after setting pihole as only DHCP server on the network? I'm guessing gateway IP is set correctly too on the pihole?

    For anyone who has the kinetics fork. How do you get the mudguard stay that fits around the axle on the NDS to stay in place and not leave the hook that keeps the front in place when folded too high up? I've got mine jammed under the QR but can't fit the washer and little thing it sits inside without leaving the QR quite a distance away from the lips on the fork, which worries me.

    Seems it's either low enough to keep the front end hooked to the frame when folded but brakes squeal, or pull the stay a little higher and get a crap fold but no squealing.

    Would i be better off using a 9mm thru axle QR? I've got a novatec d791 so end caps aren't hard to come by and I've got a 9mm QR axle kicking around somewhere...

    Cheers! Just checked, they were £83.

    @sacredhart they're 130bcd dura ace 7800 ht2 cranks. The BB is a sm-bb52. Needs a spacer or two on the drive side between BB shell and BB Cup.

    Actually, the drive side crank is a 7800, left crank is a stages PM - 6800.

    Frankly, it's a ridiculous bike, but I can't stop dicking about with it 🤷♂️

    Edit - I've got a set of 130bcd ultegra ht2 cranks, they're 172.5mm. Had them fitted to the Brompton before I decided to stick the power meter on (which is 175mm). They're a bit scratched and I filed the lips for the little ring down a bit to ensure it didn't foul the Brompton chainstay.

    It's a Kinetics one. Got it from ebay a few months ago for £7oish. Think it must've been fitted/used but is basically mint.

    Cheers! Yeah I did shop around but didn't spot those, saw the kinlin nbr but seem to recall it mentioned needing narrow tyres... And there was a carbon rim somewhere on ebay for £100 or so. Did want black braking surface.

    The rim I went for was the hub gear version I think, with angled spoke holes. Thought that'd be preferable to the regular one considering the angle they'd be at...

    @R.hobbs and @TM thanks, was worried I'd irreparably ruin something, especially after watching a couple of YouTube vids showing rather gentle taps followed by it sliding straight out. I'll go at it with renewed vigour tomorrow.

    Anyone got any advice regarding the removal of a stuck Brompton stem? Trying to remove the stem so I can stick my disc fork on there. Have followed the Brompton doc that says undo the lock nut 1 turn and then the expander bolt 4 turns and give it the Allen key a whack, but it's not shifting at all. Indeed I've now given it several whacks and nothing... I was hoping to get this sorted so I could commute on Monday. Soak it in penetrating oil and leave it a while?
