Re: Overseas purchases and imports

That's not really how it works. Countries signed up for common VAT rules simply charge the VAT as they would on any other domestic sale. So if you're a business in Germany, you charge VAT on your sale to everyone in the EU as they are all in the common VAT group. This used to include the UK. That G...

Re: Exposure joystick carbon coming apart

Another one here, seems the weakness is in the carbon laminate, it's almost new & barely used. Got a returns note to send it back. I sort of came to the conclusion that this was why they seemed to be 'going cheap' :|

Re: Whats a 'comfy' singleSpeed gearing for hilly roadie stuff?

Wheel size is also a factor to consider Shaf. With 26" a ratio of 2:1 was always a good starting point for off road, so something like 32:16. With 29" (700c) 32:18 would feel roughly similar. I'd not much experience of riding lots on-road SS, but i say definitely go for a bigger ratio. Don't ask me ...

Re: Top loop of the HT550 vs Cairngorms Loop? Recommendations which please

Just be aware that if you're from more than two households then you could be breaking some restrictions. Also if you give an address that is from an area in lockdown, then you may get knocked back. Would definitely recommend the outer Cairngorm Loop, but ride the inner loop from Feshiebridge & carry...

Re: No wonder we went metric.

Thread gauge?

Car boot sales can be your friend, old taps are handy for identifying threads, or what you'll 'get away with'..
Only prob is that they'll spend the majority of their life in a draw..

Re: ... and so it continues.

In the Lakes at the weekend at one of the Grizedale car parks. Van pulls up next to us, dirty feckers left a bag of (presume) human sub standard behind in the middle of the car park when they left. It wasn't a large bag & i was quite intrigued/impressed how they managed to squeeze it in there! Would...

Re: Public footpath gone AWOL

All seems nuts to me! Is it also 'illegal' to push your bike whilst on a pavement? What do you do instead, step onto the road & risk getting run over? If you're pushing your bike whilst on a road are you no longer a pedestrian? Even though riding on footpaths is a no-no, always thought that for it t...

Re: Galloway

I'll be sailing in to Cairnryan on a Sunday so quite a few shops will be closed, anyone know of anywhere close to my route that would be open and sells gas canisters for my camping stove? I think there'd a couple of outdoor type shops in Newton Stewart, not sure if they'll be open on Sunday though....
