    Going Vegan

    One thing we found in the 3 months our daughter was vegetarian was the copy of normal stuff was crap. Eg vego chicken, cauliflower rice, etc were not good. However vegetables prepared were nice. Also some narsty chemicals are in the flavours to make the fake products.

    I asked our can only to eat the imported species, eg rabbits in the park. She nodded; and as she is the supreme ruler, i took that as she understood.

    Going Vegan

    Daughter tried veg last year. Best thing is get a range of cook books that have interesting apertising meals in them. You can only eat so much bland food. Also given her age, the macro nutrients are very important.

    I need new cranks

    no not dumb, just i've been there and seen bike shop go there. its the default cranks look like 175mm or longer (175 standard on mtb) before you by new crank, check you can disassemble and remove, cos if peddles not coming of, not sure what else could have seized. try something like mtb market place on your wife's FB account and bound to be lots of people upgrade from 11 speed

    I need new cranks

    Kieran what length are you after? are you sure you are trying to release them the right way (reverse thread)? - i have found a peddle spanner is more effective than hex key Is it a 1 by or 2 by set-up, (if 2 by, may be almost as cheap to do the scram eagle upgrade) tip when you get new cranks, always put silicon lube on thread when changing peddles, as peddles auto tighten or by a new bike, so you have one for each peddle type😀
