    cheapo Diadora boots from eBay

    The one the Wiggle outlet has been flogging off? I looked at those because frostbitten toes (possible exaggeration).

    FWIW I'd give them another few goes, taping up the bits of your feet that rubbed. Or swap out the insoles?

    Plenty of touring bikes use Deore bits too, as most iterations have been decent, reliable and value for money and offer some different cassette ratios. If I were you/him, I'd ride it and replace bits as he breaks them, they wear out or he realises they don't suit what he wants.

    Obviously, it's all personal taste. And I quite like the slightly franken-nature of mixed up groups anyway (see the functional and frankenbike threads also for some ideas). So matchy-matchy isn't really a thing for me. But it's his. Do what it takes to get your mate riding it and then enjoy it!

    I like this. Have a bump.

    Wait, but what's the strategy here

    Get the story in the news - get as much publicity as possible - you won't do that unless it is as crazy as it can be. And imply an underlying message that they will pass worse and worse, more draconian legislation each time until they get their way - is pretty much how I've taken it.

    Been in the pipeline for a good few months now. They're in the same building anyway (with the Evening Standard also - which isn't in the same group), not that it is any motivation to these things. Rothermere tends to let his titles run themselves to a great extent (Metro in the stable too). So the journalistic slant won't change.

    Sounds about right for a European game. I went to Bedford Blues (fairly) recently and it's £20 there.

    Tickets in the Shed used to be ca. £30-ish? And the stands were as you say.

    International tickets prices are a f*****g joke also. Sod growing the game. The blazers must have their free booze...

    Shhhh. One of the Welsh regions will nab him with promises of international caps.
