I need to buy a bigger bike because I'm a fat bastard 'heavier rider' and the dinky 700 x 25c tyres are working overtime to not pop, but there's not enough clearance on the forks and brake calipers to just put bigger tyres on without replacing all that stuff too.
are you sure you've got the pressure right? i use this chart: https://oaksandspokes.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/bertopresschart.jpg

re: booze etc, you just have to wait for em to come over scan their ID and press "do not challenge" then gently caress off (though i suppose it's more irritating if you're at the age where you still get ID'd).

I mean I got ID'd last year and I'm 44. I guess the whole mask thing doesn't help or they'd be able to see the grey hairs.

yeah I've got schwalbe tyres with the pressure cast in the rubber on the side so i check it once a week or so. its also that I want to get a baby seat on the back in the near future so maybe I need to switch from a road bike to something a bit heftier

While a grain platform can be used for corn, a specialized corn head is ordinarily used instead.



I can't drink yet, had to go and quote some patio and decking for Wife's colleague and now I've been dragged shopping.
Guess I'll take the bike out for a hoon when I get home and work up a thirst.

There was a cartoon of highlander in the 90s. It was set in the far future and had a lot of cool design stuff iirc

They went through a real phase of making kid-targeted content based on ultraviolet adult IP. I definitely remember lots of robocop toys and maybe a cartoon. There was a Conan the barbarian one too.

I really, really wanted a terminator toy where you could put a plastic skeleton t800 in a mould and pour in pink goo that set to make skin/flesh. I even asked Father Christmas for it when I was about 6 and I think he was concerned.

I wonder how many children were traumatised by watching the original film of the toy line they got pushed by Saturday morning tv

That was the last toy I bought myself as a child. Absolutely loved it- it was super satisfying to peel the flesh off.

I also turned out to be a terminator obsessive, though not sure if that was before or after I got the play set. Hell, my wife and I walked down the aisle to the Terminator theme. Which was awesome.

We learnt the hard way with our eldest. She threw a tantrum while holding wife's hand and as she threw herself on the floor her elbow dislocated.
Now we just leave them and walk away pretending they don't belong to us.

decathalon stuff is usually good for just a simple comuter bike.

https://www.decathlon.co.uk/p/rc-120-flat-bar-disc-road-bike-blue-microshift/_/R-p-311239?mc=8556195

this is probably fine? (if it was in stock). there's loads of mounting holes for racks so you could definitely get a baby seat on it

I've got a decathlon bike, it does the job just fine. If you don't need it for much more than commuting and occasional rides then I don't think you can go far wrong with anything really, bikes are a solved equation at this point.
