  1. Sadly so. I can think of plenty of other bikes I'd be filling my boat with.
  2. I also have the same three combination of bikes. Brompton for Brompton stuff - going to the pub, going shopping etc. - (and for riding around the Yorkshire Dales last year on a tour, which prompted me to buy the following...), gravel bike which I use for riding around the Yorkshire Dales, up and down the towpath when I'm out of town and need to get back to the office, and mountainbike for fun stuff and scaring myself. I'm not sure who could live with any less than three bikes! Wouldn't be using the Brompton in anything like muddy conditions. Did once (unintentionally), wouldn't do again. All the downsides of riding home after several pints (all over the place, no balance, no grip, falling off), none of the upsides (drinking several pints). I actually used to have a Dahon when I was down in London. Great to ride, terrible to fold and commute with. If I just needed a folding bike and wanted to save a few bob, I'd get one again.
  3. I could do with some of those! Any recommendations of where to get some from? 😉
  4. I'm the same but actually remember being caught out by a paypal scam about 4 or 5 years ago, and a paypal email scam. I'm generally pretty on it for catching scam emails but this one was particularly convincing and they'd disguised the URL pretty well. I opened the link, started typing in my details and submitted it. It wasn't until seconds after it clicked I'd been had, so quickly went to change my paypal details and luckily nothing had come of it. That's the first and only time I've been had, browsers are getting better at highlighting such things.
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-50117796 Will people please stop giving money away to foreign call centres, to Nigerian princes, to people pretending to be your future husband/wife (who you've never met before)? Here's a list of them: https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/types-of-scams Read up and don't be taken in.
  6. Broad locks along the aire/calder and calder/hebble (in particular) are pretty thrashy or "man's locks" as a CRT bod called them. I assume you can kept them under control with some of the suggestions above - going down is fine but going up, I'd be tempted to tie them both front and back if you can, after the calder and hebble locks removed most of the stuff from my shelves and did me a favour of disassembling various plates and glasses. Just going with the centre line was not enough.

  11. They won't be renting 3 or Vodafone networks then..
  12. Been with EE for a while, for London you can't beat EE. Up in Yorkshire so far they've been excellent. I get between 30 and 40mbs up north, in London I got in excess of 60. Couldn't really beat it. Went with 3 for a while in London, the data connection was pretty unreliable so went back to EE. I'm surprised that some provider like giff gaff hasn't jumped on the idea of offering connections via any network and so covering all bases.
  13. It was you!! You beast! Actually, I'm over it. I've moved on. I was excited to hear the locks were open so I could get myself to Castleford as has been the plan for 3 weeks. Keep getting stuck behind closed flood locks. Got to Stanley Ferry to find out Woodnock lock was in the red. Turns out there is a glimmer of hope I can crack on tomorrow as I could see some yellow.
  14. Nice photo, if not a bit over-egged on the contrast! Do you know who took it?
  15. Bit drastic that just to not go through a tunnel! I personally like a tunnel.
