R2W still involves me shelling out, sadly. I was hoping to buy a disused bike off one of the other school dads - you know the type, must have a £6k super bike, then uses it twice. But they all bought racing bikes because they’re boring people, and I like mountain bikes because I’m not.

I suspect some bolt cutters and a hacksaw will do the trick.

The term "hack", which has lost all meaning.

Clingfilm. Oh, it starts out fine, the first sheet pulled from the roll tears perfectly to the exact size you want, cutting nice and neat. But as you work your way through the roll the insidious little bugger shows it’s true colours, so by the time you’re halfway through you’re tearing smaller and smaller bits, and then you get to the point where, inexplicably, only half the width of the roll comes out, the other half wrapped round itself in a maze of strands that takes an age to unravel, by which time you’ve almost come to the end of the roll. Fiendish, spiteful stuff.

Or, operator error, or, that's what happens when you buy cheap clingfilm. :wink:

Half of me grudgingly acknowledges you’re probably right on both counts mate, then the other half refuses to accept I cannot operate something as simple as bloody clingfilm!!
