Re: Tom! Pidcock!

Really liked that James, thanks for sharing.
...rode out of Brecon on roads that are a series of small 15% climbs and descents feeling physically deflated.
This brought back some memories!

Re: Surly 'Corner Bar' - what do we think???

For anyone else who's interested, the etymology of entomology is from the Greek entomon (denoting an insect) + -logia (denoting a subject of study or interest).

Re: Somewhere between 8 and 22.

I'm stuck between "sounds ideal, but can I justify it when I already have the 8g version?" and "one can never have too many stoves".
I'm similarly torn by the copper-coloured mug (though am cautious of burnt lips, having previously been scalded by an aluminium mug).
