    My point is that the driver of the car is many things. He's a dangerous tw8t, a selfish r's hole and total wakner. SW brings race into argument, which is totally irrelevant. That's exactly what racism is. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk

    I'm quite surprised that you are able to identify the drivers precise ethnic origin to such a degree. From the video I saw I could only identify him/her as a bad driver. Racism/ignorance again. Defend it any way you like, there's no excuse to drop the 'P' bomb on a public forum. (For the...

    A wise man once said that racism is always born out of ignorance. Here's a classic example. (Someone else can explain what I'm saying to SW, I haven't the patience) Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk

    Choosing a bike for a tall guy (over 6')

    It's not as hard as you would think, and there are peeps on here who will help, or even do the job for you. If you have to pay, £100 seems to be the going rate. Prob still within budget. Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk

    Choosing a bike for a tall guy (over 6')

    I'm only 6ft, but because I have truly enormous feet I'm effectively 6"3. I'm most comfortable on a 22/23" mountain bike. So I understand the problem. While I'm sure there are companies that make them that big they are few and far between. For this reason, I think it best to find a non powered...

    Chain slip

    Chain slip

    Sorry, a bit late to this thread. When I ran a fairly high speed motor on my bike I found the I spent most of my time on the smallest/second smallest sprocket. Since these have only 11/14 teeth they wear a lot quicker than the bigger ones, go around many more times and slip more readily. I...

    Help with mud please

    No, pure DHMO is an insulator, so that source must be wrong. However, after reading that DHMO is given to viscous dogs, I gave it to all the kids in my sons Rugby team this morning. Before the match, and again at half time. They won quite convincingly.

    Help with mud please

    I have access to loads of dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO). It is the best thing for getting rid of mud, no question. I normally use it neat, but sometimes I dilute slightly with a bit of fairy liquid. You have to be a bit careful with it though, its quite dangerous if handled incorrectly and causes...

    How long should a chain last on a E-MTB

    I guess it depends how fussy you are, and how much you weigh. When a FUB like me stands on the pedals in a high gear (fewer teeth at the back end) a slippage can be, err...let me put this another way. My soft underparts are precious to me. They don't get much use these days, but I like to keep...

    How long should a chain last on a E-MTB

    I've eaten chains in 700 with a hub drive, but that was with sand and no maintenance. You do need to change it when it wears or it'll wear the cassette out as well. You don't need a chain tool though, you can measure with a tape measure or ruler. I follow Sheldon Browns advice, which is...
