It does, and it's quite often the most interesting and enlightening show on the radio.

- Sizing help please - Synapse / SuperSix1 year 9 weeks agoHi, I'm new here. I'd like
Hi, I'm new here. I'd like some advice, but if it's not what I want to hear, then please don't post again. I'd much rather hear from people who may or may not be a similar height, and may be completely different in torso/limb length/flexibility/injuries/riding styles etc, to see what they bought, even though none of us has any idea what the other looks like.
Sorry if this seems overly sarcastic, but a long-time forum member offered decent advice, which IS kinda the purpose of forums like this. Being psychic with regarding to your physique, well, that isn't. We aren't cliquey here, it's very friendly and helpful, but we can only work with what we've got.
It's good that you don't want to waste a shop's time when you know you're not going to buy from them, perhaps a trip out for a third party bike fitting is in order? That way you pay for the service and not feel guilty. You could even be up front with the shop and offer them a few quid or a tray of nice doughnuts or something for their time.
If this really isn't an option, perhaps join a local club where you can ask the opinion of someone who can see what you look like on a bike? Alternatively, compare the geometry charts of the mortirolo and the Cannondales to work out what your position would be on each. (I'm assuming you're comfortable on the Mortirolo - if that isn't the case then all bets are off I'm afraid) I find the easiest way to do this is using Microsoft Visio to plot the angles and tube lengths, overlaying the different frames to give you an at-a-glance view. If you can obtain stack and reach figures for each then the hard work's done for you anyway. Best of luck with it.

Seems like a good idea to me. Just another good way to stop councils robbing us with their extortionate ticket prices and ridiculous operating hours.

I would favour a simple approach: A life ban for dangerous driving. A ten year ban for careless driving and 5 years mandatory sentence for anyone driving after disqualified.
Sotting in a cell contemplating your driving ban is probably not as effective as sitting at the bus stop contemplating it.

Q: How long will it take to replenish the pint?
A: Blood volume is replaced within 24 hours. Red cells need about 4 to 8 weeks for complete replacement. You need to wait 56 days or 8 weeks to donate again.
Q: How will I feel after donation?
A: Most people feel great! Donors who know what to expect and have eaten regular meals before donating are usually fine. After donating, drink extra fluids for the next 24 hours.
Q: How soon after donating can I get back to my regular routine?
A: Right away. Just avoid lifting, pushing or picking up heavy objects for about 4 or 5 hours after giving blood.
- giving blood. Any problems1 year 9 weeks agoYour body should have fully
Your body should have fully recovered by Sunday. If you look up online how long it takes to restore the pint of blood, I'm pretty sure its just a couple of days and you should have no adverse effects.
If it was tomorrow you were doing the ride, I would be wary, but its 5 days after your donation, you should be fine
- Eric Pickles' proposed double yellow lines grace period "a danger to cyclists"1 year 9 weeks agoHigh streets formed through
High streets formed through footfall traffic and have been decimated by car usage.
As soon as food retailers outgrew the high street, the moved to out of town box stores that took that footfall traffic with them, already by then converted to vehicular traffic.
Fatty Pickles think s double yellow parking is going to help rejuvenation of the high street but will do nothing but add to the culture of driver entitlement, which will then end up with rogue parking everywhere.
What I suggest is a blood sacrifice of Eric Pickles to appease the angry gods and hopefully make abundant once more the harvest from the high street. It may seem banal, pagan and quite futile but dammit, THE GODS DEMAND IT!
- Eric Pickles' proposed double yellow lines grace period "a danger to cyclists"1 year 9 weeks ago15 minutes is just the amount
15 minutes is just the amount of time Eric Pickles needs to park up, waddle to Greggs to collect his lunchtime order of "everything" and waddle back again.
Fat pillock, another moronic and unworkable idea.

I got a giant defy 3 for less than 600 in Edinburgh bicycle coop (you just have to ask nicely for a discount), and I could not be happier.
My advise would be to buy a defy 2 or 3, and save some cash for stuff like mudguards, clothes, pedals and shoes.

- Pedal on Parliament not impressed with Scotland’s Nice Way Code campaign1 year 9 weeks agoHey now, don't call that
Hey now, don't call that £500,000 spend on Be Nice marketing a waste before we see the outcome. Car drivers have never been asked to be nice before, not that I'm aware of, so this could really turn things around!
Remember, when God gave Moses those 10 commandments and spread them around the world that totally stopped all the killing, idolatry, coveting, etc... God missed a crucial point, "Be Nice", but luckily we have this £500,000 to shore up those commandments.
