    Morning
    Off into town to eat stuff from the pop up food market, then doing some wiring in the car and if there's time left fixing the many many creaks and squeaks on the bikes.

    Morning, dogs currently blasting round trying to catch my friends German Shepard who's staying over this weekend.
    Matt, sort it out! Meant to be even nicer next weekend as well.

    Home shortly hose off dogs some breakfast an fit new chainrings to the bike then not much, might do a quick zwift session.

    Morning All. Parkrun sorted, found attractive view to follow so nearly ran a PB. Mutt walking later with family. Easy day planned otherwise
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    go for the ride

    worst case, think of it as evolution in action, the state has a superfluity of replacements

    Up North sitting in a care home keeping my old dear company. That's about it for the day. May head back tomorrow if she is still stable and be on standby to come back in the week.

    Today was operation big hammer. My rubble frameset was ex-demo but they removed the bb30 bsa adaptor so I had been using bb30 bearings due to the state of the bore in the Bb she'll. Today I manned up and used my homemade press (m14 studding and some nuts washers etc. ) with hammer assistance to batter an adaptor in. It's about 0.75 MM. short but definitely in, and I don't think I broke the frame. Boy they can take some punishment....

    Shed loads of them. Took my mother up there and the lad came down from uni for it. Don’t think it will make any difference, but it was a bit of fun and the old dear enjoyed it.
    Bumped into an old friend that runs a large department in a hospital. They’ve been instructed to stock up on things, but not to say they’re stockpiling as that sounds bad. What a shitshow.

    Good man V68.

    It all seemed very busy but peaceful.

    Oh, and despite me not being at all a musical theatre type of person, the book of mormon was fantastic. Filthy and hilarious.

    Was planning using it as a ring doughnut holder, TT bars though would hold more :lol:

    I don't fancy cutting a carbon steerer.

    You need a shotgun. I've seen it before - to put holes in de donut.

    Is that a Ti frame set Step? Harsh no? unless it you weigh 22 stone of course.

    Aye, the carbon one encountered some issues, by issue I mean a crack along the rear brake mount.

    Not quite 22 stone no, very smooth to ride though.

    Chopping the steerer is easy, I have a jig and a fine hacksaw.

    My bony 4rse says no. (Unlike Del Monte).

    SG has had a love affair with Del Monte for too long.
    I reckon, he's the biggest shareholder. It all makes sense, now I think about it.

    S'like an iron fist in a velvet glove, smooth to the touch, but the stiffness where you need it. Not like your rusty old Italian steel, which is just knackered. :wink:
