    Thanks, so I’m not under heating it then. I’m preheating on the fan oven, it’s all working as it should, I even had it apart the other week to change the fan element and gave it a full check over then.

    When I tried the casserole it was hot as fuck, water sizzled inside it instantly and I was frit to burn myself handling it with a tea towel, but the loaf was really pale and flat at 30 mins. On the pizza stone it was as if the stone had sucked the heat out of the base of the dough, it didn’t really form a crust at all on the bottom, just barely sealed the dough.

    I’m going straight at it in a preheated thin metal tin this time, see if that confirms pre-heating problems.

    How long are you pre heating your casseroles / pizza stones? I preheated the oven to 250 for over an hour with the heavy pot in the oven but the loaf took over an hour to cook and didn’t turn out well and on the pizza stone the bottom was raw while the top burned. I’ll be getting a zappy thermometer tomorrow what temp do I need?

    Excited about that self-build CX job, just specced one up, looks like the best way to a nicely specced bike.

    Im aware there are geometry problems with small frames / big wheels, could you help me out with specifically what those are, in a nutshell?

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Frustratingly there’s no stock of any of them anywhere. There’s no hurry.

    I think that’s exactly what I’m looking for, thank you very much. Good here innit.

    Up to £1k I reckon, does need brakes and gears though :)

    Drop-bar bikes for someone 5’0”. Is a XS frame with 700c wheels terminally compromised? Is there a 26” wheeled road / gravel bike available OTP? I’ve seen a Frog one but it’s very much a kids bike with crappy spec.

    Great, the Super Jolly will definitely be up to the task. Careful going really low with the dose, you start running into issues with headspace and the coffee washing around in the basket.
