Java, PHP, and various other languages since about 1998. More recently, lots of Javascript, lots of MongoDB, and lots besides.

comment Is it worth getting a suspension seat post as a cheap alternative to full suspension bike?
@Deepee, no, I can see why they say that. The saddle moves backwards and down at the same time, so it's kinda travelling in an arc. It works, anyway. It's a superb product. So much better than a compression-style suspension seat post. Had one for a few months now

I did go for wider tyres and lower pressure, but I also bought a Thudbuster, which, although expensive, has made a huge difference. Bike is totally comfortable now. I'm not too upright - my seatpost is quite high up.

Nah, having tried both, the Thudbuster is by far the better solution. It doesn't feel like it's travelling back when you hit a bump.

After using a cheap post for a while, I invested in one of these. Wish I'd done so in the first place - it's so much better. I recently cycled the Ridgeway path with it and had no saddle soreness at all.

For everyone's enjoyment, I was in agony after about 40 miles of canal towpath :( However, made it to the end thanks to liberal application of ibuprofen gel! Think I'll be going for a full suspension bike soon!

I'll give that the points! Looks way better than anything else I've seen. Thanks for the link.

comment Do I need to replace hydraulic fluid in my brakes?
Well my bike has been pretty good, but it's definitely headed the way of Trig's broom from Only Fools and Horses, if you get the reference - (20 heads and 10 handles!)
