  1. I guess it could be... full of stars?
  2. Having the chain as short as possible is desirable in trials. It keeps everything nicely tight and compact, and stops it all flapping around so much on landing. To be honest, the video clip looks fine. I'm not super familar with those bikes but a lot of the clearances can get pretty close in on trials bikes. If it's close but it clears, it's fine. At that angle, the chainline didn't look too bad. Could you post a picture down the length of the chain to show how "bad" it is? I get the impression you have an MTB background... if that is the case, just know that single-speed bikes with comparatively wide chains have a lot more tolerance in chain-line. Definitely worth getting in touch with Tarty as their service is great and it might be an actual issue, but I'd be happy enough with riding that.
  3. I've been toying with a project that needs some bends but not started it yet. Is that 3mm ply? Did you steam it, or just rag it over?
  4. Possibly a long shot but there's a few nerds on here. I'm trying to do some image mapping with Meshroom, and hitting errors just as it gets started. The console output is: [18:39:46.154914][info] Can't find CUDA-Enabled GPU. [18:39:46.154914][error] This program needs a CUDA-Enabled GPU (with at least compute capability 2.0). I'm laptop-based, but crucially the GPU is a GeForce GTX 960M. I've looked it up and whilst it wouldn't be a quick one, it should work. It has 640 cores and a compute capability of 5.0 according to and I've tried going in to the Nvidea Control Panel and setting it to run on the GPU rather than integrated, but get the same error either way. CUDA GPUs is set to All, and anything that looks likely related I've set to On. Do I need to tick a box or set a setting somewhere to enable CUDA? EDIT: Ignore. The driver update apparently hadn't worked properly. Ran it again and now getting past the error.
  5. Yes. Constant tease. Hurts so bad. Not fair. Wah wah wah
  6. I imagine the Jitsies are pretty similar. I've not heard of issues with them, so probably also a safe bet. Choose carefully though, since there seems to be about a thousand options. Some have really little upsweep like the Arcade bars, which are very much an acquired taste. I personally find them disgusting, others don't. Just pointing it out as something to be aware of.
  7. People might tell you to get X, Y or Z super high rise bars. Don't. The frame wasn't designed for them. Trialtechs are super bombproof and the highest I would go for with that frame, but possibly a shade lower would be better. Not sure on the other two because I'm brakeless 20"
  8. Or if there's only one active moderator, see about refreshing the list Not much use having ten mods if eight of them haven't logged in for four years and one for two. (No idea on real numbers - just saying.)
  9. Yep, same. You'll also likely never be able to drive through or visit a new place without looking down every sideroad you pass just in case there's a hidden gem there. It's not a problem, either. It just shows you enjoy it. The problem only comes when people ask you for directions to the lirbrary and you catch yourself telling them to turn left at the double-width wall with the loose slabs on top, right at the crossroads with a bit of raised pavement next to a row of bollards and then walk straight on past the little transition-style central reservation. If they get to the white handrail with loads of chips in the paint, they've gone too far. Especially when they mumble "left, right, straight on... Oh, just up past Tesco then?".
  10. I love terrace rows like that. Everyone's had slightly different extensions put on and makes it look absolutely nuts. Such an organic looking development of something so inorganic and designed for primarily with functionality:cost in mind. Is that the EPDM stuff? I nearly went with that until I went full-timber.
  11. If it's any consolation, the CDs themselves will be in a landfill somewhere for the next million years or so. I know that's still brief in the life of a planet or star, but it's a good bit longer than us. Your memory will live on in a hunk of plastic and metal long after you're gone.
  12. I just went to find mine and it's been removed ages ago because I used Aphex Twin and copyright strikes back then just took them down rather than transfering adverts money Oh Youtube. This is why I left you! Then Vimeo introduced their own limitations. I'm not going to re-upload it because it'll just be the same and Oh so cringe. Oldest one currently online, which is definitely more cringe than the other anyway: I have three old videos in my uploads gallery on here, but the video aspect of this site broke ages ago. They're still there though. Does anyone know if there's a way to download them? Not even sure who the mods are on here any more. None of them seem to post, unless it's all in the Senior Members sub.
  13. I agree. As soon as it became apparent that things were going to change I was on the side of "hit it hard and fast". They f**ked about for ages and then brought in half measures. Look at places that did it right: Norway and Australia come to mind. Now they have zero cases. It won't make you popular at the time, but it works. Even Wales had the 5km thing, if I recall? I'm fortunate in that at the time I had a job I could do from home and had some savings to fall back on when redundancy came, so I recognise that I weathered it better than a lot of people were able to, but doing something like that half-arsed seems worse than not doing it at all. You're not saving the lives, and you're tanking your economy. Worst of both.
  14. I have to be honest, I couldn't make much sense of most of that, but the parts I could sound like you missed or ignored what I intended my point to be. That could well be because my post was a rambling turd too, so no biggie. Things like splitting a sentence in half to object to a fragment of it when the other half addresses it. That's not how language works. I'm not going to get into back-and-forthing because I don't know much about it, and it sounds a bit like you wouldn't want to hear it if I did, but just to clear one thing up: I'm in no way denying that the virus could have originated in a lab. It could easily have gotten out. I just believe if it did, it was an accident rather than organised malice.
  15. There is a point, but it's not yet. I'm aaaaaaall for V-type action if it was ever at that point and constantly have to ask my partner's perspective of whether we're getting there or not, but this is different. I would say we're at a point more like that if the numbers drop off/there's a vaccine and the new powers in various peoples' hands don't get relinquished. Matlida's an ICU nurse and keen as a bean on keeping up to date with statistics and figures so I get a weird perspective of objective numbers, but also subjective stories of her patients. I think it's easier to get your mind wrapped up in the conspiracy mindset when you're not hearing the first-hand stories. (Note: Definitely not a dig - I was 100% in that category until the first wave spread up north and I started hearing them.)
