  1. Hi guys 

    It seems that I have an odd issue that the gear shifter on the left hand side of the bike is very stiff to go through the gears , but when the casing is removed everything is fine it's just when I tighten the casing down it seems as if it's putting pressure on the shifter if I loosen the casing screws slightly it's fine , any thoughts ? 

    Thanks

  2. Hi I've a 1974 bultaco sherpa which iv replaced points on but I need a new nut which holds mag on its all block standard do you know the size of the thread please 

  3. Can you try uploading/attaching one? Should now be allowed.
  4. What is the file format and how big are the files? If they present no security risk and aren't too big I could allow them.
  5. I have re-opened the TC events calendar, but all future events that were put in before it was closed have been deleted to avoid confusion. Clubs are now free to add events again.
  6. ACU & AMCA joint update on plans released here
  7. Before you get too excited, you can't block me ?
  8. Click on the settings menu, top right then Ignored Users. You can block people there.
  9. It's an interesting topic. Going by the stats TC hasn't got any quieter over the years in terms of traffic (It is down over the past couple of months due to lack of news, but that will bounce back). Scroll down to the bottom of the forums and you'll always see a large number of "lurkers". The main reasons TC has become very bike focused is partly down to a very knowledgable and helpful user base (for which I thank all contributors) and the work that the forum software providers have done in search engine optimisation. If you have a problem with your bike, do you go to Facebook? No. You go to Google with your problem and you will always find TC very near the top of the results, and more often than not the top result. It's the gap in the market that TC is filling very well. There is no other resource like it for Trials. There has been much debate about the place of forums in the world of anti-social media and there is absolutely a place for them. If you want arseholes, self-professed "experts" on every subject under the sun and pictures of people's cats, head for Facebook. If your topic is of a more important nature, use a forum. Interestingly, I did some research a few months ago as I was working with a charity that had abandoned their website and gone 100% Facebook. Only roughly 65% of people in the UK use Facebook so that was over a third of the potential donating public they were completely ignoring. The core Facebook platform is also in decline. They're clever at hiding that fact as they bundle WhatsApp and Instagram users into their published user counts and both of those Apps are still growing so it hides the decline in Facebook itself. The charity now has a website again and it's brought in a substantial amount of money since relaunch.
  10. I would say this is a better dashboard https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html BUT don't spend too much time looking at numbers or reading about it and especially limit antisocial media activity. If you start on all the bollocks on Twitter and Arsebook it can easily turn you into a gibbering wreck.
  11. Buy toilet roll. Lots of toilet roll.
  12. It was Becky Cook at a World round in France. Steps had to be taken to make sure the same thing didn't happen at the Women's TdN the following day...
