Re: Rear shock service intervals...... When did you last get it serviced.

Enduro riders its once a year. Street bikes (in all their guises) tend to just be left until it goes wrong. Plenty of the cheaper oe shocks aren't very serviceable. I think the fact that most shops will have to send it off to a specialist means that most owners dont bother until it leaks oil or beg...

Re: Led cree lights

Well you can connect to the battery but they will be on all the time lol! Ok pop a switch on too and you can switch on and off as you like but again this is a receipt for disaster as you are bound to leave on at some point. The best way is to fit a small relay that comes on when the bike is running ...

Re: Electric MTB

Probably not until there is some sort of incident and then it'll be a 'deadly de-restricted' mtb menace plaguing paths storyline and plenty of indignation in press with resulting knee jerk reaction in law.

Re: Drones

I like the idea of them ie video of you riding or cycling/running in a remote area BUT I also think the noise is annoying. We were walking the Seven Sisters coastal path and someone was flying a drone - the sound in nature is very intrusive.

Re: Air Compressor Advice please...

The smaller ones do t seem to run air tools very well. Nor to cheap airtools have much oomph. The lidl / aldi air comps are ok for general air supply tyres and blowing bike dry though so unless you are dead set on airtools get one of those. Airtool use I think you be best with a 200l jobbie from mac...

Re: COVID-19......Your Situation

Still at work. Heathrow cargo. One of the guys on our shift has been forced to go home as his father in law has been tested positive! Luckily he works in control room and I work on tool in cage system but as it spreads so easily I'm a bit concerned. Not mentioned it to mrs as she'll worry herself to...
