Ripping some new CDs, pop one in the drive and the album art is already there. Strange, I didn't remember doing this one yet. Check the stack, nope definitely not yet. Um, then why has this ripped already then? Check the shelf. Fuckwit! you've already bought this one.

Popping my cherry here - Took a 5 min break from WFH to replace a kink in rear derailleur cable housing... realised my old heavy nose pliers (basic extent of my tooling) would not cut the housing (what do you guys use?) so thought I'd just throw a new housing in coz I had one spare..

Pulled it out of the internal routing - cable, housing and all, that's when i realised it doesn't just slide through the downtube and out the little slit at the bottom...

Eventually managed to get a cable through and pulled the threaded the housing down on that.. But the initial thought after pulling it all out was.. what a f*ckwit.

Plus one. ^^^
Also, @komdotkom, it’s pointless trying to fix a kink. Shifting will always be compromised. 9/10 cases of poor shifting are caused by old, dirty, kinked, or bent too tightly cables...or clamped too tightly on frame if external.

Been cursing the second hand Yakima roof top rack for past year as the ratchet for strapping the rear wheel down was on the opposite side.

Looked at it today for the umpteenth time and realized it can just be removed in 5 seconds and turned around.

Serves me right for believing the specs on Pushys saying that its "Compatible with 10, 11 and 12 speed"

FFS.

Who makes a NW 104BCD 12sp Shimano compatible chainring?

Hmm...I don’t think the ring is the issue there...

Fuckit. I'm now doubting the AbsoluteBlack NW I just bought will work either with an SLX 12sp chain...

From what I’ve read, people are doing it. (Mixing and matching chain/ring speeds) Internal width between plates is same as 11....or close enough not to matter.
Your issue appear to be length looks 1/2 link out over the distance to wrap around ring.
