    Morning. Work, getting ready for a shutdown. Healthy lunch has managed to leak out chilly sauce into my bag. Arghh.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    WFH as the wife is still away, so long walk with the hound to rest the legs after three days of back to back runs.

    Later is bikes :)

    It's sunshine and showers. Proper April wevver. Let's see wots I gets done in between the showers.
    Tomorrow Glasgow early.

    Yesterday an old man pulls out on me during the school run like I wasn't there.
    Today Chav man in Chav van reverses out of his drive and luckily I stopped in time, then he see's me and stops. Then he proceeds to tailgate me all the way in and his son (5/6 yrs old?) is roaming about in the front, no child seat to be seen. I bet he voted Brexit.

    Working at home today as the Panzer needs a diff oil change - luckily it's free as a I saw what they were going to charge until they realised it was complementary.

    Onwards with year end shizzle.

    Ciao

    Just had to go and empty a house, now about to go and do some weights but am cold and hungry so do not know how productive it will be.

    Glad I bought a new bike a couple of weeks ago the day before the storm, kicked in and now its hissing down.

    Afternoon folks,
    It's a bit grim out there, I'd like some sunshine back please.
    Another busy day in here, the downside of being surrounded by pretty young personages of the female persuasion is they have appalling taste in music. I have to close my ears and open my eyes more.
    Stupidly I just had a read of the Brexit thread and felt compelled to post something, bizarrely Stevo posts one of the most sensible things on there. Amazing how many people don't grasp his diagram with the different levels of EU, EEA, EFTA, Schengen, etc. It could probably do with Eurovision added to please the knuckle draggers. I've got a reasonable knowledge of these things, but still check before posting.
    Glad I had sandwiches today, it's gopping out there.
    Onward and upwards...

    Glad to be of service V, even that was a bit of a back handed compliment :)

    Tongue firmly in cheek as ever, but you knew that. The constant accusations of you being a leaver are quite funny. Bally and yourself thought along vaguely similar lines to me on this. The EU isn't perfect, but the only possible outcomes of leaving are worse than staying in. All the rest was pie in the sky.

    And as you know, a good argument sometimes needs a devils advocate. Which I seem well placed to do in Cake Stop as a Chelsea supporting, Tory voting tax adviser and car enthusiast :D

    Worked out my shifting problems....

    The quite literal "rub"

    Therein lies the rub.

    Indeed pesky thing, put the old rings off, no rub mix of a slight offset and thicker main part of the chainring.

    I'm confused. Am I supposed to be looking at the front mech rubbing on the chain?

    No the inside edge of the big ring is hitting the chain, only an issue in 11t and 12t after that it moves across enough to not rub

    Stick it in a gear where it doesn't rub.
