  1. The Expat Thread.

    yes yes and yes. You know what the kids back home want to hear - a dollar value. Let em know how cheap these people work for.
  2. Got 404s, what next?

    What Bert says is the exact rationale I bought into disks originally - sound, wind tunnel stats, feel, people looking etc. Reality is, I will never average 45kphr - where the advantages of a disk really kick in (wind tunnel tested). Save your money - either stick with the rear 404 or get the 808 if you want it to look a little more aesthetically pleasing and serious. Consider your ability (chances of representing the UK at the Tokyo olympics), your terrain and the adaptability to most situations. In perfect conditions, the disk is faster - perfect conditions are as rare as hens teeth.
  3. Got 404s, what next?

    Hi FP Firstly, envious. Sold my 404s and regret it. I wouldn't go the disk rear. I've had them before. Great on the flattest, non technical courses but in strong winds with some UK hills/undulations, I would go the 808 rear for sure. I've made all the mistakes and spent the dollars on the disk. People will say that in windy conditions the depth of the front matters the most but I've persevered with a disk in the wind so many times - always feeling like I'm dragging a heavy anchor around and using too much strength to ride a straight line. go the 808 ps, just spent £1200 on a Tacx Neo plus an extra £8 on a bottle of red and listening to some old rhythm and blues Stevie Wonder trying to forget about it.

    What do you pay a full time nanny per month in the UAE?
  5. Joining 4 monitors together

    Sure you are Peter, sure you are. Isn't it so you can follow twitter, facebook, insta, trannies, scoop.com plus watch netflix all at once?
  6. Private health, who are worth a gander?

    If it gets dire, the World will look after you. Huge guilt put upon us to have private cover - it's marketing. I had it for 25 years. Wish I had that money in the bank.

    Good Lord, could there be anything worse... (a touch of irony on International women's day, said by the man with a young daughter)

    This little exchange was baffling Sounds like Bored@ slept over and engaged in a little 'pillow-talk'.
