    Hi guys As a nation and a people and as the BH community, we have just gone through the most hair raising, cataclysmic week in our country. Lives, livelihoods, business and critical infrastructure have been destroyed. Food , medicine and fuel security are threatened. Its been a scary and anxious time. but it did not happen on BH I see (threads probably deleted or did not get off the starting blocks). Its like living in an alternative world where only the latest broken freehub has relevance to our existential reality. or maybe the LBS, horror of horrors, didnt true my front wheel, so my broken wheel falls within the domain of permissible content. Woohoo, i have agency on the hub cos i have a wheel that tries to turn under the constraints of its excruciating warped deficiencies. So BH has become tone deaf and intolerant to the happenings in the world, silencing the exchange of ideas, fears, anxieties and messages of hope in a pandemic, the dangers of which have been horrifically augmented by a plot to unseat our democracy. If your business was looted or burned down, you could not come here seeking comfort. If you lost your job, you have no voice here. If your’e stuck in your holiday flat in Ballito without food, nobody here wants to know it unless you also have no more bike oil. And if you dont, you better tell us what brand you dont have and why its the bestest superest bike oil eva! Its draconian, pathetic and downright ******* stupid.But, I guess it is what it is. anyways, our good friend, @Stretch has started a lovely chat for hubbers and ex hubbers to have safe and open NCR (and CR) chat with hub “mates”, and its been good to just talk freely about the unrest, some fun stuff, politics, sport, the virus, the tour. And all. Its just an outlet for us oldies to carry on the conversations we enjoyed when the tap got switched off here. There are no real rules, except I guess, be lekker. And don't be a ****. (We have nod any yet.) If this interests you at all, come join us on discord chat here : https://discord.gg/DuRPajpR When registering use your hub name so we all know whose who in the zoo. And yes, you can still come back here to agonise about that clicking BB that’s been driving you and your mates to suicidal thoughts.
  2. I am there. Come break the internet.
  3. Maybe we go full tilt laaitie and join tiktok? 😂😂😂😂
  4. I understand your position. Thank you for taking the time to reply.
  5. Dear @Matt and @Nick As a compromise on the NCR thread shedding, I would like to request and suggest that you bring back just the coronavirus thread. It was a place where we could connect with one another in deeply troubled times, and share experiences and knowledge of the pandemic. As such, It was also a source of great comfort, and it served the community well, at a time where we and our families are under existential threat. People like @River Rat and @DJR (to name but 2) shared expert and invaluable knowledge. Yes, there was a bit of bitchery too, but nothing too serious. please would you consider reinstating the thread. 🙏 Thank you for receiving and reading this in the good spirit in which it is posted. all those who agree, please would you hit the like button. Edit: i should also mention @Dale , who generously gave of his professional skills and compassion to give us hope, strength and comfort.
  6. Just be grateful they have not taken your ftp down.
  7. I have temporarily re-activated my dstv just for the tour and for Wimbledon. With all the works stress, and the covid surge doom and gloom, i really need a pick me up, and I cant wait. I hope to watch as much of it as I can on the trainer.
  8. Religion, yes. I agree there. but, Politics was no more polarising than the days of 26er v 29er. Nobody wanted to lose the trump or global politics thread. And though pretty feisty at times, I think all protagonists on both sides in those threads learnt a lot from the other. And I don’t believe those threads gave birth to any sworn enemies. So, imho the discussion served the community well; shutting them is unfortunate.
  9. What a ball ache. i was always a tapatalk baby. I’m finding this site so much more of clunky.
  10. Agreed. But, not all ANT + dongles are equal. I think the most reliable one is the Garmin.
  11. I think its by design, to actively discourage OT chat by shoving it in the background. So to speak.
  12. Any update on the tapatalk reactivation?
