    The election thread - Will the new PM last a full term - who will you futilely vote for?

    Barney? Barnyard? I think I'd definitely call him Barnyard.

    That gay marriage thing........

    The only two elements necessary for a marriage between two persons (of binary sex) are intention, and consent. Not procreation or any other guff that gets put out there. "Do you wanna?" "Yep" Job's on. I would say for the first circa twenty five years of my life I never once heard or read a...

    WTB old Saint shortcage derailleur

    As the title says, I'm looking for an old Saint shortcage derailleur, one of the axle-mounted ones. Condition of the cage plates is the most important thing, I am raiding them to build a shortcage XTR derailleur.

    Lawn Mower Help

    Plenty of time for servicing. My mum's self-propelled OHV Honda has been in our family since about 1988. Dad changed the oil in about 1999. Still going strong, though just starting to puff a hint of blue smoke on cold start or when you gas it up from idling for a long time. An accurate post...

    Looks like the sram geo-block has reached germany.

    Kind of surprising as SRAM have been one of the least conservative of the distributors. I mean look at Shimano, they just take the p!ss. Then again, that's like being one of the least conservative in the LNP right faction I suppose.

    SRAM drivetrain?

    They've changed their distribution channel and model to make more money for SRAM and to support distributors to make more money for SRAM. Which, of course, is business. Vis a vis Nobody wins. Bet Shimano do it next. I notice even Paypal are being cagey about international peer to peer...

    Restoring GT Avalanche

    Well,or an early Pantera AL...but, the flat end cap with the CNC brace and V-brake cable stop are a give away of a late-model, USA built Zaskar.

    Coroner's report on roadie that died after frame failure

    Sure,but it would only need to be an advisory, and it could be based on an extreme duty estimate so at worst might result in viable parts being trashed rather than life expired parts failing. I'm sure there's plenty of SIDs out being ridden by +80kg riders.

    Coroner's report on roadie that died after frame failure

    I don't think putting a fatigue life on roadie stuff would be a bad idea at all, particularly in an environment involving proximity to fast moving 2 ton lumps of metal. I gave my dad a 1996 Specialized roadie and to be honest the bonded aluminium/carbon Kinesis fork frightens me a bit.

    Boy oh boy will we have a doozy of a war when the dems get back in if that happens.

    Kookie Kutter Klunkers must be the way 'young person' BMX companies want to keep 40 year olds on their branding.

    Probably never taken off-road by that guy. A lot of uber retro-freds are like that.

    Again; so what! $60 billion? No worries, just pay up and get it done. Even if it was $120 billion, fine, just do it. In the long run, so what!? Price of bloody everything and the value of nothing.

    So f*cking what. As if the private sector would have delivered it at all, or cheaper.

    Tromp family mystery....

    I would like to know what evidence there is of the son's travels. His return trip seems to have been remarkably straightforward in the context of the seemingly erratic goings on. No phones, no cards, leaves just physical evidence bordering on ethereal and their word...
