  1. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Had a break in this great weather weve been having, so Cabbage on his Ten and my "ready for it" TA was given a tough shake down. Decided to do Sarn Helen, some lanes around Brecon and also Llandovery. Awesome day so rather than ramblings I thought I would just post the pics. The TA was fine...

  3. Chatter
    Okay, let's stay away from gas for the second. Often thought about getting a welder, but money and model and lack of knowledge conspire. So, what is the cheapest but good one to buy? Do I want TIG, MIG etc. Now I believe one type isn't good for sheet work, but what I want it for is normal bike...

  16. Mechanical Advice
    I have making do with a cheapish Halfords socket set for 15+years now. The ratchet is going a bit and I could do with a 3/8" drive torque wrench. I also need some big sockets - 20mm-30mm prolly in 1/2" drive. So, its about time to upgrade. Any recommendations? I would rather pay more than...
  17. Product Reviews
    After all the positive reviews I suppose its time for a negative one. I bought this low price (£16) torque wrench from Clarke tools at Machine Mart a year or so and while it doesn't get a huge amount of use, as I have a better one for the higher torque settings, it as still seen a fair bit of...

The discounts have been moved from the Chatter forum in to one of their own. You need to be a registered user and logged in to see these. The For...
