Cowboy hats are still American fashion.
Why am I considering installing another OS? Do I hate myself that much?
Yes ypu do.
Yes you do, and I feel your pain man, Each time I download something really dumb, I must hate myself too much.
Heh. Well, at least I found time to install a new battery in my laptop. Considering an SSD, but that will have to wait for funding.
Meanwhile, since Mint 19 is not going to have a KDE flavor, I am thinking about trying KDE Neon out.
Thinking of getting a tablet one of these days, but Do not want to spend a huge chunk of money.
Apparently there used to be a lot more women in the IT industry. How times have changed.
Front derailleurs are great if they work. An absolute pain to adjust if they don't.
Just starting the Hill Street Blues Boxset on All4... I may be some time
I find the rear derailleurs tougher to tweak.
Not got started on that yet, so could well be.
I had a cycling accident about 5 weeks ago and broke my arm. Parts of the bike didn't do so well either
Rears are easy. Adjust the upper limit screw and lower limit screw to set the max range of the derailer, then tweak the shifts with the cable tensioner. I agree the fron is a pain though, and recommend getting that one dialed in before you adjust the rear.
It won't go on to the inside cog at all. I managed to coax it on to the outside one, so I've got 14 out of the 21 gears available. But I think the cable tension is all wrong.
Last time I tried to align my daughter's hybrid, I had the same issues.
The alignment lasted all of a month.
Is it an indexed or friction shift lever?
lol! I'm thinking it may not be as easy as I thought. Yeah mine is also a hybrid bike
Now you're getting too technical for me
I'll go for indexed, because there's a control on the handle bars which tells me what gear I'm in. That's the problem, because it's saying "1", but the chain's on the middle cog. It won't actually go down because well, there's nowhere to go. And what's strange is it doesn't even want to shift up to the biggest cog on the outside. It's like the cable is stuck, and there's insufficient movement either way.
Maybe I'll just hit it with a hammer
Yes I know what you mean by friction - that's a twist grip, right?
An indexed shift lever will "click" into each gear while a friction lever (old school) simply slides until you get into gear.
Definitely indexed. Well, it needs re-indexing.
Oh, no! How's your arm now?
Much better thanks.
about what this thread is all about?
You did read the first post didn't you?
I sometimes wonder myself
How old is SS-GB @psionandy? I started watching it yesterday. Saturday in my timezones.
