Need to buy a fan, are there any good places to buy apart from shitty amazon?

internet says I need a ‘gym fan’ which goes on the floor

places like screwfix do pretty big ones for quite cheap? I’ve just got a shitey regular desk fan. works fine, but one with a remote control might be nice.

a lot of hardcore turbo users say you should get an ‘air mover’ rather than a fan. something like:

but they’re pretty expensive. then there’s always

£200 fan… oh yeah

Looking forward to Rapha getting into the air mover game. Black air mover with a pink stripe, £350 pls


Actually the cheapest you could possibly sell a proper quality fan for

problem is the big uk shops don’t like delivering here, and the irish equivalents never seem to have anything in stock (topical!)

Usually I get stuff shipped to Belfast and pick it when whenever I next visit…

…amazon it is.

that vacmaster thing looks right up my street but how loud is it??!


Mrs F went to Tesco’s yesterday to buy some milk. They only had four pint bottles left, so she bought one. Then we had to work out a way to freeze some.

So my bidon is now in the freezer, full of milk. (Yes I only have one. I only need one.)

Last night I filled some of those ice cube-making bags with milk. Hope it works

you can’t drink four pints of milk before it goes off?

between two people?

I don’t drink it at all. I only ever use it for making cheese sauce. Which I intend to do. Plus we have a milk delivery, but it’s been a bit patchy lately for some reason, so we might end up with another two pints tomorrow.

I’d estimate the working percentage at 100%.

Jesus I come in the cycling thread for a good honest chat about bidons and all people want to talk about is milk!


there are also two currently on my bike on the turbo

Blimey how much milk do you get through?!


I’m strictly on the oat but plasticmike has no trouble getting through 4 pints himself before it goes off
