So I had my first introduction to indoor top rope climbing last night and it went well. Learned my knots and how to belay properly. I was in a group of 6, well it was supposed to be 6 but one person didn't turn up. I noticed after my lesson that I seem to always be in the same type of groups regardless of what I do. There will always be one or two jokers (this was myself and a friend who've bouldered for a while so arent scared of the climbing just wary of falling from larger heights) a person who is far too confident for their actual ability, one person who is extremely wary/ scared of the task at hand and one person who is so quiet you forget they are there.

Now I know that its only a group of six, but on a lot of courses that I've found myself on (work related, get to know your colleagues type of thing) the same format seems to apply regardless of the situation. Last night was a random event with only 2 people knowing each other yet they all seemed to fall into the catagories.

Is it just me that this happens to or do you find that when you end up in groups you always have the typical/ joker/ shy person/ over confident and lack of confidence personalities?

And even if, say, 100 kilos/220 lbs of liquified deer wasn't toxic at all, even the small whiffs you get when a little gas escapes can make people's eye water, aside from the gagging/outright vomiting. Opening it? Not really feasible.

... also, then you have 100 litres of sludge to deal with. Can't just empty that out onto someone's porch. Or even into their yard.

Postby Jumble » Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:11 am UTC

So, I killed my bike. Monty the Brompton is dead, RIP. With his frame snapped in half he is bereft of life, he rests in peace and has gone to join the choir invisible. This, is an ex-Brompton.

To be fair, it was a pretty old and well-used bike when I bought it off eBay 6 years ago, and I've cycle commuted it across London almost every day since then. Urban thrashing takes its toll, particularly when you are occasionally forced (for reasons of survival) to view the traffic laws as more of a rough guideline. So metal fatigue finally caused the main frame to snap in the middle as I was crossing Oxford Street.

Now I have a question, and I bring it to the XKCD oracle. Do I cough up £300 for a new frame, and then face all the complications of transferring all the parts across (not knowing if they all fit or I have the skills / tools to do this) or do I shell out >£500 for another eBay Brompton, not knowing if it's a) about to go snap as well and/or knicked.

Thoughts please?

(and my wife would definitely recommend knitting on crochet)

That completely depends on the quality of the parts. I don't think I'd change over my old sun tour front and rear derailer. However, I'd keep other parts. My bike was purchased on ebay. Shipping cost as much as the bike. There might be some local publications that would be less expensive. Installing components isn't very difficult. Watch some youtube videos if you're unsure. Borrow tools if needed. Wrench, allen wrenches, and Phillips screwdriver. be sure to check the specs and sizing measurements.... Good luck.
