Hi guys, had a mishap with a pothole and somehow the windscreen cracked. Would the usual chip fixer kits work to cover up this crack for a week. Insurance is sorting the windscreen but not til Tuesday.
Main reason I want to bother is I'm going to the police state on Sunday, you know how they like to nail, well, anyone

Nah, not a chip fixable crack.

Keep your booking for repair to show officers if you are pulled over, that should cover you so you wont be defected or something.

That looks a lot like @moorey's Hilux immediately in front of you there...

Surely you two can mange a more romantic rendezvous than a soggy carpark!

Tie a crumpled old road bike to the front of the car to go with the bloodstains and the police will never investigate.
You are joking, but I have direct experience that shows police do f*ck all in cycle related incidents.

I was riding along M7 cycleway, and assaulted by two pieces of shit on a motorbike - they passed and kicked into me, knocking me somersaulting along the path.

How much response do you reckon I got from police??

Nothing. Not even a phone call. Pissweak.

Yep, a kid killer a guy who was riding around the world here in Canberra and the police actively worked to pin it on the dead cyclists.

I changed some forks around the other day as well as the disk and adaptors, but left the original brake callipers on each bike. One bike had 4 pot Shimanos (MT420) with a 203mm rotor, the other 2 pots (upgraded to MT500's) with a 180mm rotor.

The bike with the 4 pot MT420's but now smaller 180mm rotor looks to sit slightly too far out on the rotor but the other fit's nicely with the 203mm rotor. I figured if I move the disk, adaptor and rotor the calliper should just bolt straight on. Did I miss something?

Is the fork designed to run a bigger rotor sans adapter than your old fork? Without pics, hard to say.
