Re: oh dear, what a shame.

I haven't read the rancid troll's OP, but just to say that the 'death penalty' and 'extra-judicial killings' are not really comparable. There are arguments for the death penalty (few of which I agree with), but there can be no reasonable argument for extra-judicial murder. Name calling and not read...

Re: Rugby World Cup 2019

I think the main problem with England sport isn't the fans, it's the press. I think you will find it is the fans that are pissed up, fighting with the police and not the sports journalists, there on a freebie. Are we still discussing rugby? While there seem to be plenty of instances of this in foot...

Re: oh dear, what a shame.

The problem with the death penalty is that
a) it's far more costly than actually putting someone in prison (to the tune of over $1m per inmate)
b) it doesn't act as a deterrent to crime

so it serves little to no benefit except for those who like to 'get even'

i still dont get this marthon thing. Guy is allowed to break the rules and therefore breaks a record, but it wont count as he broke the rules.

Custom paint is very expensive.

I know you said brand new but you can probably get an insane bike for 2k used.

Anyone watching this? I am on baby duties this morning so have the joys of the most bland television personality - Clare boring balding introducing. Hopefully eurosport does a better job of the coverage

Re: Chainset Swap

Will be fine for a 4 arm chainset. BCDs all the same. Ben is incorrect in this case as 6800 is a 4 arm chainset.

Re: Maybe we are not doomed after all

Wasn't the government funding it anyway, so it's not their money lost.

Or perhaps gov pulled out so Dyson pulled the plug, so to speak.

Re: Focus Izalco Max

It depends how much you care. In the real world with your average cat 4 chopper/ weekend warrior, it won't make a scrap of difference. If you are an elite triathlete or tester then I wouldn't recommend. What's more important is that they are absolutely stunning and the Paul Smith esque paint job of ...

Re: Recommend Me Some Gloves and Overshoes!

Get some silk glove liners for a tenner from most online sports shops. Makes a huge difference. I use craft base layers which are quite cheap and work really well despite how thin they are when it gets very cold. A buff or equivalent is useful for neck/face/ears Feet is more tricky, but I use defeet...
