    Good stuff from Truefitt, Trumper, and QED:


    Rather nice brush stand from QED for a SR 3126 or SR 3128.

    Hi Scotto,
    Used the T&H Rose this morning. Firm, but not dry. Appeared to be much the same consistency as my 4 or 5 other T&H creams.. It is far more firm than any of the Taylor creams, which despite everyone loving their fragrances (and price I think) are far too variable in consistency.
  7. My T&H Rose is not firm at all, whereas my other T&H creams (Almond, Trafalgar, and Grafton) are. Strange.

    I used it also, and was successful. It was almost waxy it was so firm (not at all like my other T&H creams), but a bit of elbow grease kicked up lots of froth.

    Zollamt? oder Gewohnheiten?

  15. Was ist loss Damit ? Zoll ? Ich zahle nimmer Zoll also bis heute nur sache was wirklich teur sind also uber 400 euro. Die Hollandische beamte sind sehr cool sie begreiffen meine RAD.SCAD, BAD. und ich frage immer den verkaufer den wirkliche preis NICHT zu melden und keine invoice zu schicken du solsst keine Zoll zahlen unter 300 euro sollte ich mir denken .
  16. Stocking up, just in case.:biggrin:
  17. Really NICE score... should keep you fit for summer 2006 what should such a bike set me back money wise? im thinking of getting either such a bike or a MTB so I can bike to work aswell its only 12000 meters away from my house and I need to get back in shape. I used to be a great biker.. trained legs because I was a paperboy back in my youth the paper subscripts lived thru my whole town..there was no specific block..just a route I would take everyday.

  18. Nice, that T&H luxury soap is one of the best, truly superlative.
  19. Thanks Richard, I now have 1 bowl with soap and 3 refills, should last me a long time. I've been using it for a few years now and it is one of the best.
  20. How much you spend on a bike has a lot to do with how much you plan to be on it, and what type of bike you're looking for. I think a good judge of cost is, put 1.00 into it for every mile you think you'll put on it in any given year. Road bikes and serious off road bikes you'll probably end up spending more than that. Basically, figure out what type of bike you want, find a frame that you like (and fits you) and try to get the best components for your $.

    Your local bike shops can help a lot. Avoid brand stores (like, trek heh). Just describe what you want and give them an idea of what you want to spend. Go to a few of them.

    That's a Trek Pilot 2.1, which was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but fit me better than the other bikes in the range I was looking for. It was about 1300.00. It's my first Trek, I've always been a bit of a cannondale junkie in the past.
