    This sounds great (and reasonably priced), but probably too pricy for someone not sure if they want to fall down the espresso rabbit hole.

    Long shot, but anyone looking to sell either what I'm calling an 'entry level enthusiast machine' - Gaggia Classic (or even some of its lesser relations - Baby etc), or a ROK GC?

    I will not be taking questions on the variability of these two options.

    Well who knew...

    So theoretically, buy a smaller rad the use extenders to fill the gap?

    Radiator widths... I'm having a mare trying to source two replacements. Pipe centers are 1275 and 1285mm. These don't appear to be standard sizes.

    Do I go for something like 1240mm units and use valve extenders (are these a thing? Easy to fit?), or am I missing something obvious?

    Tent recommendations for 'family camping' (ie. Two adults, two kids)? Something compartmentalised seems sensible, ability to stand would be helpful. Would mainly be used for car camping - for my sins - so lightweight is not a requirement (which hopefully also helps with the cheap/light/good trifecta).

    Edit: also happy to be made aware of any European brands that don't make it over here... Not sure if that's a thing?

    Yeah that's great. Just drop me a message if he has a price in mind!

    And I could be interested in the frameset, depending on asking price, if that helps with @mattyc and the splitting question.

    I have literally no idea, so I'm very happy to take you at your word!!

    I guess the red colours all over the map worried me, but could be all for nothing.

    @Trunkie hell on earth....

    How bad does the weather have to be before (a) ferries are cancelled and (b) you would have rather have not got on the ferry in the first place!?

    Doing Harwich to Hoek over the weekend and the forecast is...fruity to say the least (30mph winds, 2.5m swell - is this bad?!)
