Re: Toobless ... Jeebuz H C

I too have been subjected to the hours of swearing/cleaning of sealant off surfaces other than the tyre where it should be...ugh! Someone's probably made a database of this sort of thing. If it hasn't been made, maybe it should be. Could make for less swearing and more riding. Bonty tyres on Bonty M...

Re: Cycling glasses... getting old

+1 for Rydons. Mrs Scattamah has the inserts and says they're great. Weight is right for forgetting you have them on. On the downside, they are designed for your face and will not survive in your pocket. I have a set with cracked frame from this. Treat them kindly and you won't be disappointed. Gree...

No, I agree - a primaloft gilet, arm warmers and a base layer is a really adaptable combo. Works great, until you walk into a pub for dinner : )
+1 for arm/leg covers and base layer. Staples in my setup.
Have you had issues getting served wearing arm warmers James? : )

@ James, Zippy, JS....IOT appliances...they are nearly always the point of failure due to bad security. If you're into vapourwave and internet exploits, Shodan2000 is retro-tastic and shows plenty of compromised camera systems.
