Very important win for Down. Had the potential of a banana skin for us there.
   Clare and Westmeath should both win tomorrow easily.
   Sligo vs Antrim harder call.

You would have thought having Chain reaction already set up in Belfast would have been ideally set up given this brexit nonsense.
     Mike ( zero hour contract) Ashley seemingly has bought the intellectual/name rights to wiggle/chain reaction. Most staff 400+ laid off.
    He already owns evanscycles and probikekit.

Funny enough Halfords have said they will honour warranties on parts and accessories purchased from Wiggle.
     Im not sure what the position would be for bicycles especially Vitus/Nukeproof etc

Given the provincial championship draw and current league standings, there is the potential for the winner of division 3 qualifying for Sam.
   Good chance Clare will meet Kerry in Munster final and qualify automatically.
   Its harder to see either Down, Sligo or Westmeath reach their respective provincial finals even though they are on the weaker sides of their provincial draws.

Quote from: Gael85 on February 18, 2024, 04:38:44 PMAt Clare and Offaly game. Offaly went up by 10 points around 50 minute mark. Clare went two up. Offaly got penalty and balloon over the bar with last kick of the game.

Offaly must have imploded. Hard to fathom. Great confidence boost for Clare though.

Antrim v Down, Corrigan Park, 2pm
Limerick v Sligo, Rathkeale, 2pm
Offaly v Clare, Glenisk O'Connor Park, 2pm
Wicklow v Westmeath, Aughrim, 2pm

All div 3 games on today. Big game for us vs Antrim. We stole the same fixture last season so you'd imagine will go right to the wire.
   Its hard to see anything but wins for Westmeath and Sligo.
   Probably going to go for Offaly win at home.

1. Antrim

4. Sligo
5. Clare
6. Offaly
7. Wicklow
8. Limerick

Antrim looked to be heading in the right direction last year, and if they can build a little more on some very good performances I can see them winning the type of games that they narrowly lost last year. Similar thoughts regarding Down, a few late errors cost them wins last year and I'd hope they can make that extra step this year. Westmeath obviously the danger to both of these teams, and with them having the home game against Down, it could be decisive at the end of the league.

So far so good with that league prediction.
  Down play Antrim in round 3 in Corrigan Park. Antrim were very unlucky last year in park Esler and should really have won.
     Westmeath have a home draw against Down which could prove to be very significant.

Quote from: Ed Ricketts on January 27, 2024, 11:44:48 AMSeems Donaldson has calculated he finally has enough support to push them back into Stormont. Big meeting on Monday to lay it all out. Maybe even back at work by the end of the week.

Response of the holdouts will be interesting. A bit of grumbling, but ultimately sticking with the DUP gravy train? Or does it become more messy? Unionism is so directionless at the minute - how stable can government be until they figure themselves out?

Stephen Nolan is back from holidays on Monday so there is still time to ramp up the outrage and scupper a deal.

 a  ' Lundy Monday ' Special?

Or he could have cool sensible heads on the show like Doug Beattie, Peter Shirlow or Newton Emerson. But I guess the  ratings are more important.

Nope...  looks like ' Traitor Tuesday ' tomorrow! Grim Allister to the fore once again!

Its one of the main downsides of ordering a bike online instead of a local bikeshop.
  Some local bike shops are great and will cover the warranty of an online purchase particularly if you buy a few bits and pieces from them over the years.
  A few problems with sending off the old battery and fitting the battery may be that you invalidate both the existing warranty on the bike and any potential chain warranty on the new battery(that chain warranty might not even exist for the di2 battery!)

As Benny says +1 on bike hire. By the time you factor in paying for the bike box and paying the extra baggage costs its not worth it.
      Also you have to partially disassemble your bike and reassemble both ways. Your reliant on some halfwit not breaking your bike as well during transport.
    I would say to reserve bike(s) early as they can run low during busy times. 
    Although most come with a spare tube/levers, i would take a few spare tubes, levers, multi tool and maybe a rear light.

Quote from: majestic on January 10, 2024, 04:24:48 PManyone with a shimano 105 di2 12 speed noticing a serious battery drain? I'm not sure if its the cold weather, but I checked my battery level on Sunday, it showed green (50% plus) - done my normal commute on monday (10km each way) and it died on my journey home on Tuesday, less than 40km since it showed green.


Could be a number of different issues.
   Battery itself, the firmware or a short in one of the components(most commonly the right shifter).
  Quickest way would be take it to the bike shop who can plug the bike in and diagnose the problem with shimano box.
   Otherwise you can try to isolate each of the components (derailleurs and shifters) and see if the battery is still draining.
   These bikes are getting as complicated as cars! Lot to be said for an older mechanically geared, external cable routed, rim brake.
    Good luck with it.
