  1. Blew some cob webs out of my big bike today. Probably hadn't ridden it in about 4 months.
  2. That looks scary. Cranks usually have less material further up. Edit: Plus, wouldn't it make them too short. 22mm is quite a difference.
  3. Cheers for the replies guys. I wasn't expecting it to go scientific. Lots to think about.
  4. Since getting back into riding trials reasonably often about 2 years ago, I have been struggling with finger ache (middle and ring finger on both hands). This always used to happen to me if I had been riding all day, but now it happens quite quickly and ends my riding prematurely. I know that a lot of these problems can be grip and lever position related, but where do I start? Thicker or thinner grips? In, out, up or down on the lever positions?
  5. What do you use as pesticides? My old man has been getting into a bit of home vegetable growing recently and insects keep eating it.
  6. I thought that it was a step in the right direction and i'm glad that they listened to the criticism. But I found the episode boring.
  7. No Iggy Pop?
  8. False alarm! After over a week of the buyer not replying to my messages, it turns out that he has received it and it must be a tracking error on UK Mail's system. Big sigh of relief! So I guess I can keep his money and get UK Mail insurance money? Haha!
  9. It was something I sold on ebay for £230. I insured it to a value of up to £250. So i'm hoping that there shouldn't be any problems.
  10. UK Mail.
  11. A courier company has lost a reasonably high value parcel of mine and I need some advice. And knowing that trials-forum is full of highly educated gentlemen, this is where I will turn first. I have never had a parcel go missing before and I fear that they are not going to pay out. Even though it was sent via a signed for, insured, next day service, I know that they will try to weasel out of it. Contacting them has been a real pain in the ass. All their phone lines are automated, with no useful options. I have had no response from their contact forms on their website. The only contact I have had with them is via Twitter and they have finally given me an email address where I can direct my claim. So I can tell that whatever the outcome, this is going to be a slow process. Should I also be contacting the police, trading standards or anybody like that?
  12. Just as a heads up and to gauge any interest, this may be up for sale soon. It's pretty much as is from the last picture. I have barely ridden it, so it still looks pretty fresh from the respray.
  13. The "sister" concept was ok, it was the execution that they got all wrong. The street gang aspect was very cringe and I think unnecessary. Just a revengeful recluse would have done the job better. And dedicating an entire episode to it was a bad idea. They should have stuck to the usual back and forth between story lines.
  14. Season 2 was great, apart from that sister episode.
  15. What brake cleaner are you using? I've never had any "residue" problems.
