Little Things You Hate

You say that now, but trust me...the first morning you wake up a long way from coffee and civilisation in general you will regret the freedom.
Yes, being able to ride past a cafe grabbing a nice coffee on my way to my trails is a curse. All with no one trying to kill you on the roads. You can keep your "civilisation" Poodle...
Definitely feel for all you poor buggers doing lockdown though. That sucks bad,

No. Yaw wrong. Positive pressure isn’t going to fix a leaking master cylinder.
Go tell @udi he doesn’t know how to bleed brakes as well
I'll tell anyone who'll listen.

And no, but if you don't give all the information, its hard to make a call. Maybe if you'd said 'LTIH is leaking shimano master cylinders'....
Never had it happen in 16 years of shimano use personally. My mate did.....but thought that sewing machine oil would work. Spoiler, it doesn't.

Is that like the time when you used to say you'd never run a chainguide because of clutch derailluers / NW rings?

Also the fact that its mentioned in pinkbike means it's probably been happening for a good while...

Well currently I'm not really sure it is my civilisation...actual photo from my daily pedal.

Also note most drivers in WA seem to be less intent on killing cyclists and have an almost polite approach to us.

where as at home, should I decide that the 30m walk to the nearest cafe is not for me and I wish to venture forth on the lengthy harbourside cycleway then I must endure the risk that in Newcastle even the cyclists want to kill other cyclists. What a strange bunch of fuckwits they are!

You triggered Bro? :(
Can only talk from personal experience. Never used to drop chains, happened 2x in a race, changed my opinion and run guides now on most bikes. Not all.
Re Shimano, never said it never happens. Clearly it does. Has never happened to me or the people’s bikes I work on. Millions of sets out there, some are bound to fail.
I have been wrong on many things. I’ll be wrong on many more. Sorry about your brakes.

I've got one in similar limbo from UK. Landed in Melbourne July 29th, processed August 2nd, then nothing. Tracking enquiry lodged two weeks ago, no response to that yet either. :mad:
Yep. I had a package that took a month to get from me to Brisbane. A whole fucking 3 hours away. After nearly a month Aus Post finally admitted they didn't know where it was. On a Thurs I sent them my bank details for compensation. On Mon the following week my package magically arrived to it's destination, but they still managed to stop the compensation payment before it hit my account. Sso they're not dead slow at some things..... ;)
Got a response which was 99.5% excuse-laden waffle; among the guff it begged for another 10 business days, and if not delivered by Sept. 11th, go apeshit (OK, that might be slight paraphrase). Shot one back to say that I'll wait until then, but if still not delivered I'll be requesting and expecting compo.

I don’t want to just order another adapter from you purely because the current approach to freight is it may or may not get there but if you pay for express it may or may not get to there sooner

gunna order from Wolf tooth OS and see if it beats the current order here
