  1. Rear rim question

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Hi all, not often I ask for advice! I've a rear hub issue, the bearing eating into the hub, so needs to be replaced. So, to the question, I've been quoted for a 3" rim? Specifically asked for a 3.5" but they've quoted for a 3" and put in brackets "not 3.5" What's the deal with that? The RD04's...
  2. Life is so unfair

    I've not had cream cakes for ages but as Mrs H had bought some I'd been looking forward to eating one all day and when I eventually got round to taking it out the fridge to eat it I dropped it and it ended up on the floor Not to worry there was another sealed and unopened box. That also came...
  3. Caroline Quinten talks shi*e

    Just watching Cornwall with the dopey cow, she just said you can buy a Cornish Pasty anywhere in the world while eating a pasty, which is an issue as the cornish recipe died years ago and i don't know of any bakery that does use the "proper" Cornish recipe. Anybody who's true Cornish knows that...
  4. Horse meat - whats the fuss all about ??

    I personally would have no issue eating horse meat - it's just another quadraped herbivore like cows, sheep, pigs, and deer all of which I already consume in vast quantities. As long as it's labeled as horse meat , subject to the same controls as other meat ie not an ex racehorse pumped full of...

  12. Bike power.

    Bike Comms & Audio
    Has anyone powered the Autocom Easy 7 advance unit from the bike? I was looking on the Autocom site but all the stuff seems to be for newer models. Pehaps if I give them a call they might come up with something to stop it from eating batteries as I listen to music most of the time. Andy.

  14. Alien caliper eating monster

    Africa Twin
    Ive just spent the weekend servicing my brakes to find that all the pistons were a bit tight, well seized actually, but worst of all is that part of one of the calipers has corroded so much around the edge of the piston that the first seal is partly visible (bearing in mind the first seal is...
