I have a couple of sonos speakers and the hive app connected to the heating. Pay for spotify, not prime so no idea how more connected I need to be.

I like the idea of some app based mood lighting but a luxury way down the priority list at the mo...

MAMIL Matt - struggling on a bike lane near you soon

it was an older nicolai bike with "retro" 2.4" 26" wheels and slightly less slack front end compared to the diamond back. It was a lovely set up, breaks were easy to pull with one finger and was just about managing with the single cog. I was getting off up the hills on both bikes...

MAMIL Matt - struggling on a bike lane near you soon

John, I learnt a lot today! I really like both hardtails and FS bikes. I instantly felt quicker on the full suspension on faster sections, but instantly felt slower on the more cross country sections. I started off on the hard tail and the tyre pressure was too high, but amazing how much a quick sof...

MAMIL Matt - struggling on a bike lane near you soon

the beauty of the work scheme is the money comes off the top of the paycheck, so I never see it and it's split over 12 months + a 7% fee at the end. I think this rules out a FS bike as I'll never have the lump sum to get bike from new. have you got an idea of what they start at second hand? the bike...

MAMIL Matt - struggling on a bike lane near you soon

I'm off to swinley this Friday to try my friend's diamondback Myers 2016. He was happy with the 27.5 set up and so will give me a good starting point. I doubt I'd be able to understand what I'm missing in that set up anyway so if I like it, gives me a starting point to go from. Are 29ers more toward...
