    Very smart. The tan walls suit the colours. Maxxis knobblies for mud, tan walls for town.

    I've signed up with a mate, and someone else on here but can't remember who...

    Dill and gherkins in the bread recipe, right? Not the starter itself? Interesting either way...

    Should be straightforward - flat owners often own their freehold as joint tenants. There could be an express agreement that the freehold is to be transferred to the new flat owner when any flat is sold, or just an implicit agreement. Nothing complex for a solicitor, it's just a transfer for £1 from A & B to A & C. But of course, depending on the specific situation, there can be extra niggles.

    This looks fun, have also entered (FUN cat as it'll be my first enduro) - considering camping as well...

    mountainedgeresort.co.uk is nice, good walks nearby (good for mountain biking too...)

    I've suffered a lot with cold hands but have had success recently using 3 layers: a thin liner glove (cheap merino or silk), then some thin woollen ones, and then some Rapha overmitts (thick rubber, almost leathery - so fully waterproof and wind-proof).
    The Rapha overmitts seem to get very mixed reviews online but they work well for me, they're not too stiff, I can still operate brakes and gears on my road bikes.

    Just tried this and you're right, spring tension seems ok when the grub screw is released.
    So do you reckon I need to take apart the shifter?

    Took off chain, derailleur, chain prayer, cleaned it all, but still not moving smoothly... Any suggestions appreciated!

    Thanks all. Gave up for the day, will have another look tomorrow. @B0N0R think it could be the pusher, seems like that bit isn't moving freely but it will shift when I turn that bit manually.
