  1. Pretty sure he's open source, so you should just be able to download the code and run it on the big day.
  2. Yeah, I got on it at 0700, speech was at ~1600 or something and relatively brief. Pressure's on the BM to be entertaining and the FOB to be sincere, you just throw down some thanks and say a few nice words then chill out again
  3. Gifts for folk who helped, obligatory "thanks for welcoming me to the family" if your in-laws aren't dicks (I kept mine to the MIL and poked fun at FIL instead), and a quick "you look hawt" to the bride. If you get confused you may end up saying "thanks for looking hawt" to MIL instead.
  4. Better than that damn bow-tie placement bullshit @dann2707 went for. C**t..
  5. I only modified the existing tags, rather than adding them. If previous-Tom had been following protocol and wearing one then it'd be fine. f**king previous-Tom.
  6. That's pretty sick, nice one man!
  7. rant rant/ verb 1. speak or shout at length in an angry, impassioned way. "she was still ranting on about the unfairness of it all" synonyms: hold forth, go on and on, deliver a tirade, rant and rave, fulminate, sound off, spout, pontificate, trumpet, bluster, declaim; More
  8. Think they did a 130mm DJ, at least at some point in the series lifetime. Could well be mistaken though, never had a set myself but the lads I rode with tended to (when we were all on singlespeed jump bikes)
  9. I'm pretty sure he's a machine-learning-enabled spambot. The reason AI isn't advancing as quickly as people had initially thought is because they chose to use TF as their platform.
  10. Proper job. These frames are great fun and, evidently, still look good today.
  11. Overengineered solution to a problem that doesn't really exist, but very nicely executed. Kudos
  12. I used to run softer tyres too. Can appreciate the faster rolling nature of hard tyres and would occasionally pump them up for park/dirt use, but I'd typically be in a similar ballpark. Extra squish and a bit of comfort ***! Edit: As if "for the win" is still swear-filtered out
  13. All the hard work looks like it's paid off mate, cracking effort from all involved. Had hoped to get down for the opening session but babyprep stopped play. Shall try and swing by before arrival for a catchup
  14. A number of SRAM & Shimano levers had adjustable leverage/bite point, which might give you a little bit of extra room, but might not be enough for your needs by the sounds of it. Given the price of the trike it doesn't really seem worth messing about changing the wheel itself so I can see why you're going down the brake route. Might end up a combination of a cheap lever and the shortest brake arms you can find that clear the tyre (or some bodging)
  15. I do
  16. Initial thoughts based on the description (photos didn't load) was something along the lines of the original DJ series, but I don't think they were 140mm long form memory. Now that pictures have come through the crown design looks similar, so I'd imagine something from a similar era, which at a guess would be circa 2003/2004ish.
  17. I'd agree with Mike. I also need to get rid of our mk4 Golf to make way for something more baby-friendly - not going to be that guy and try to push it on you, but if you do end up going down that sort of route drop me a line and we'll sort something out
  18. There's going to be so much excess steel in that car it's going to need a 2.0l 4wd setup just to get it moving...
  19. Great stuff Sam, you'll be flying completely solo in no time at this rate!
  20. Where exactly do you mean by halfway down, Rory? Flush/lower than the face of the hub mount is going to be a bit tricky to remove, though if it's above this then you should be able to remove the rotor and remove the studs with some molegrips (no head on the bolts means no tension on the threads so they'll be easy to whizz out, other than any corrosion going on inside). If there's nothing standing proud of the mount to grab hold of, then you'll need to drill them out, or get someone experienced to help if you're not too confident doing so yourself Be careful not to over-torque the new rotor bolts when you refit the rotor. They only need a pretty low torque and doing them more than is necessary will do more harm than good.
  21. Looks good Dannnnnn. Welds look nice and tidy and solid too. If the top is anything to go by you've got the right amount of heat into things there, though I suppose you're pretty used to getting exactly 4mm penetration. </classicdickjoke>
  22. Well which one is it? More seriously though, details.
