    Not strictly ebike related but if i bought an ebike with a double chainring, would it be possible to use just one ring and be able to use all of the 8 speed cassette. Can the double ring be moved, leaving one of the rings in line with centre of cassette. Or remove a ring and shim the other to...

    I look in this thread from time to time, but it takes ages reading all the unseen posts. I'm not going anywhere, i posted a question, yourself and others posted some responses, that's all. I was just saying i enjoyed it.

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    Yeh, so the 90% who don't use rail pay for the 10% that do, so they can buy cheap tickets, read, charge their iphones have wifi while someones drives them to work, while i pedal. i can see who benefits from the better service. Don't see how that results in economic growth, except in the rail...

    About 10% of freight is moved by rail, not sure what a strategic pillar of the state is meant to mean. I think the railways are a good thing, just not paid for by the taxpayer.

    I agree, but i would still rather my money go to the nhs than a service i and many others don't use or need. The last time i used a train was in the early 80's, even then i only used the persil vouchers or the football specials to go to away matches.
