    Surely with all the parts you have collect to raffle of, you could just make a bike from them and surprise him that way.

    Also, I know Road.cc reaches worldwide, but the majority of users are based here in the UK, so sending money to someone in another country is going to look strange, especially when the user has only just joined the forum.

    Also, as your post is just a plain copy and paste, you email address does not work with whatever code you had it in.

    You are going to be better of trying to raffle them locally and raising money that way, rather than taking to all the bike forums around the world,.

    One other thing that you haven't thought about, say I bought tickets for the frame, groupset and wheels, then I ended up winning one or more of them. Do you know what that is going to cost to post to the UK, it will be expensive. Who covers that?

    Seriously for every study there's an opposing one and at some point a rebuttal. That's partly why the helmet debate is so difficult.

    Except that those studies are in no way contradictory, they're just saying very different things, and if you focus on issues that matter, for example, what has the most positive impact on the population's overall health, there's not much of a debate to be had.

    The first study says "if you fall off a bike, you're better off wearing a helmet".

    The second study says "even with the risk of falling off, riding a bike is much better for your health than not riding a bike, and the benefit of wearing a helmet is negligible compared to the negative impact that helmet compulsion has on the number of people riding bikes".

    Northstar, here is a definition of Freedom of speech for you

    "Freedom of speech is the political right to communicate one's opinions and ideas using one's body and property to anyone who is willing to receive them."

    For freedom of speech to work, you need someone to listen, unfortunately with your constant going over a subject that has been covered and answered, no-one is willing to receive you "freedom of speech"

    Sorry if im confused by the above comment but are you suggesting I am one of those that have been hooked?

    I have always been and always will be my own person ....

    I have asked stumps if he exploited the system without an answer
    I asked the general populace if anything would change ...you answered that
    I pointed out to Dave that ,1, the use of Godwin law as a form of censorship nullifies it's use and , 2, asked a question based on his own legal jargon both of which have been ignored
    I have suggested north was out of order for use of the c bomb

    I believe all of the above were legitimate statements/ questions which I as a paying individual had every right to ask/ state and expect a response

    I have stated I am satisfied with your answer so how have I been hooked in?

    Again if I'm confused and this wasn't including me then I'd be happy to hear confirmation from you on that Smile

    Edit: I'd like to know how you can see who has liked comments because I'm pretty sure I haven't liked any of my own Worried

  • Ordnance Survey launches free iOS Ride Tour de France route app with Chris Boardman38 min 8 sec agoI agree there should be an

    I agree there should be an Android app too and there probably will be but as others have said, iOS development is simpler still and hence tends to be done first.

    The figures the first commenter posted are also global estimates which aren't reflected in UK market share figures. All these figures are always a bit up in the air but here's a recent report from a decent source: http://m.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2337089/iphones-uk-market-share-c...

    Whatever the actual figures are, anyone who simply takes notice for a day of the phones they see in use can tell that ios commands way way more than 15% of the market.

    Anyway, good to see OS putting its mapping to good use. They have improved a great deal in recent years in making this stuff available.

    LOL.

    Nothing was set out - lie. (The "argument" is still as valid as it was when you decided to cheat.

    I have "hooked" no one in (they have voiced their opinion of their own free will - you know what freedom of speech is right? ; ) ) - where as i'm sure you or others have, it's pretty obvious : )

    Also another thing that needs to said is at first I wasn't that bothered, it was someone else who started this - I suspected it would be corrected in good faith - alas i was wrong which was when I jumped in.

    Yes you do look pretty stupid Gkam, amongst other things : ).

    Just had a look at the stand in the link and they seem to have done the same as I did with the clamp head. Cool
