    I love my well worn Joe'Mc navy sweat which after much wear and wash has settled into a lovely purp-indigo colour, we've gone with something close to that for the sofa.. ..also i like the texture

    Tell me'bout it.. if someone else would have been selling those RRR's a few years ago.. i would have been throwing women and children behind me Ive always been a very selective buyer (to my detriment) not just denim, f'kin everything.. if i can just get over this mental hurdle.. the sufu sales thread is where it's at!!! Lot's of folks here are my size, or even slightly larger don't bother me. Nothing ever hung around for more than a few weeks on my DB sales threads but jeez, it's a struggle here.. my inner David Dickinson keeps telling me to take them to auction

    What's the difference between rep and POSrep? In years to come.. when i retire from the forums and cash in my rep for actual cash do i get more for POSrep?

    The fit perfectly! why would you consider selling those when you have a kidney you don't need?

    One of the school mum's from my kids infant school is a potter, she was a consultant on the first episode of this TV program called The Pottery Throwdown but i don't think they asked her back.. There was a polar bear too but one of it's legs fell off.. Maybe MJ, these are the pots he made for his marbles, by hand on the left and thrown on the right There's a place just around the corner from our house called Planet Pot.. it's a ceramic cafe (ikr?) you get a coffee while you choose from the pots.. decorate them yourself while you're drinking your coffee, they fire them overnight and you can collect the next day.. it's always busy.

    It certainly does! I never though i needed a small brown ceramic hare in my life.. till now Fiona Brown's clay dove bears a striking resemblance to the clay penguin my kid made in infant school His beak is stuck on with blu-tack

    When the 1st run of CSF S406XXX were finished, it was noted that the the deer skin patch they used for the samples wasn't aging to a satisfactory enough degree to embody the characteristics of the patch from Yawara's 1946 jacket, so they unpicked them and replaced them with cow hide This was mine after one hot soak.. some pretty solid vintage vibes coming through, i'd say

    Yup hot water will cause the shrink and the patch will dry out, crack, darken with age

    Damn, those coffee cups are expensive.. Nice tho! I've just been listening to Psychotherapist.. Philippa Perry's discussions re- desire and consumerism on BBC Sounds ..turns out it's primitive and somewhat inbuilt which makes me feel better about constantly wanting things.

    Rim brakes would have been mounted as such, ive removed the bosses just leaving the lugs These are the old dropouts The CNC'd brake mount incororates a dropout ..and the hubs are standard 135mm

    It's hard to explain but i think what was happening.. pulling the lever pulls (lets say) 20mm of cable through the system as the actuator arm engages the pads, this also caused the cable housing between the lever and the frame to flex, releasing the lever leaves the actuator spring free to snap back but it was snapping back (at the back of the bike) before the cable housing (at the front of the bike) had time to flex back resulting in spongy braking, so i replaced it with zero-flex compressionless housing and Hey Presto! Does that make more sense?
