    The Mental Health thread

    Sorry to hear the news Roxii. Whilst I have never met Yurtie, his contributions here were always well received. Thoughts are with him, his family and friends.

    My aim is to hide any online purchases from my wife.........

    Tracing a cheque

    Spot on. The banks all have a formal process around receiving complaints and their requirements under the same. Get it formalised and then let it run it's course. Note - just be aware of the (potential) time frames involved. I've seen traces take up to 6 weeks to get a response from the other bank you might be dealing with. Be patient!

    Tracing a cheque

    Keep pushing the bank. That's their job to chase this sort of stuff up and resolve one way or another. I have literally today just written off a small sum of money (<$500) that was paid into the wrong account and subsequently was withdrawn and gone in a matter of milliseconds. Not my clients fault, and it was not the depositors fault as they were paying in in good faith, they just advised the incorrect details. From my point of view, we would waste more time / money chasing it up than what it's worth so I have simply written it off.

    enduring power of attorney

    Do you need it explained? In this current World of compliance and arse covering - yep. Do I agree - not really. Same scenario if you come and get a loan from me this days and require a guarantee from directors etc - I will send you to a Solicitor to have the document explained prior to signing so that you understand exactly what you are signing. The deal wont progress without it. I have seen Solicitor costs range from $150 to $1500 for this service. They have you over a barrel so can charge what they want. $330 in my experience sounds about right. Sorry.

    New road bike disc or not

    Thanks for the response. I have found, value for money and spec wise, they stack up exceptionally well against anything else I can find. My budget is not going to extend fully to Di2, Disc brakes and carbon wheels, so will landing more on a mid point option of rim brake, mechanical ultegra and the bling wheels. Having said that, can always see if I can convince the Minister of Finance to re-visit the budget 😉

    New road bike disc or not

    Would love some feedback on your experience with Canyon MHVH. Haven't made up my mind which model as yet, but currently flip flopping the pros and cons between the Ultimate, Endurance and Aeroad models. Would love to hear how you went about sourcing, sizing, purchase etc etc. My understanding is that there are no local distributors so it is all done online? Thanks in advance Ayto

    Wearing cycling gloves

    What Flannie said. All of Bel's have been relatively harmless looking including the most recent one resulting in the scar above. The change was not visible to the naked eye, however was detected as every 90 days she has all spots photographed and then compared to previous photos. As I said, don't be blase about this. They can kill.........and quickly.

    My wife had this one taken off her hand last week and is now #22 in about 2 years. She has quarterly checks and 90 days ago the Doc said "all clear". This visit he said "its coming out". Thats how quickly they can change. Regular checks people. Don't be blase about it!!
