  1. Thanks @Graham J, I'd be really grateful if you could post how this setting is changed. Having updated the firmware I am still struggling to find it.
  2. About as first world as a problem can get but hey ho... I just picked up a second hand Acaia Lunar. In the 'auto tare timer starts with flow' mode it does exactly what I expected when pulling a shot. Cup goes on, it auto tares and starts the timer on the first few drips. However, the auto tare happens in very quick time, like 2 secs, which means that in this same mode (and I think cycling through modes every time loses the point somewhat) I have to be lightening quick measuring beans for my dose pre grind. I reckon it could take 2 or 3 times longer than this to auto tare without causing any disadvantage to the shot pulling bit of the process. But I can't see a setting in the manual to change this delay. Does anyone know if there is one? Alternatively, how do others use theirs to both measure out beans and weigh the shot, without giving up the wizardry of its various automatic functions?
  3. The reality of its use is 90% road in a fairly flat part of the world. If I had anything much in the way of hills I couldn't hack ss in a ratio like that off road, or even on. But I love the simplicity and low maintenance.
  4. Resurrecting a rather dormant thread I know but I meant to pop a picture up of my new bike once built. Single speed "gravel" type thing. It's taken a lot longer than planned but is finally up and running, if not totally complete (still need to route the front brake hose correctly and chop down the steerer a bit more), and so far I'm over the moon with it. Knocked the best part of 2kg off the weight of the old one and running a slightly bigger gear is therefore barely noticeable. It's an absolute pleasure to ride.
  5. Well, I had completely forgotten about LSOL, not looked at the forum in ages and then this turned up. Christmas saved indeed!
  6. Mine's the same. This came up in an earlier thread so I don't think it's uncommon although I don't recall the outcome. I haven't done anything about it myself. My grind setting varies from about 13-20. There will be some variation in calibration but I'd have thought nearly anyone following Dave's video would be within 2 or 3 points.
  7. Re the 2 cups, I came to thinking I might at some point get a second scale for doing multiple drinks, but not a second grind cup. The cup comes free but the scale's still tied up. If you're pre-weighing then another cup would do it but you still have to break your routine for a third, right?
  8. Not sure these are all equal, mind. I had a set with the round buttons which had a wide open casing beneath the weighing platform and died in 2 months I assume through water ingress. My second set (rectangular buttons) is much more enclosed and still working OK after 12m and some abuse by my 5 year old. Not that either is meant to be water resistant but then nor are any of the cheap options so far as I could tell.
  9. Stirring in the Niche cup is working quite well for me and makes for a very convenient workflow. Not quite as good as if I stir in the pf for some reason, but I think the difference is technique. Or that I need a very even depth across the pf before I spin the knockoff ocd spinny tool, which would rather negate the point of the spinny tool. No spurts now but some inconsistency across the basket on a naked pour.
  10. And me. I don't feel I qualify to vote here! Nothing duff about winning a round of this comp!
  11. Also got the Las Lajas to try next but with LSOL and the Rocko on the go and disappearing for a week it'll have to suffer a little freezer time.
  12. Just received a bag of Foundry Rocko Mountain, ordered after it seemed to come so recommended on here. Only a few days roasted so probably not really ready yet but I have to say it's absolutely gorgeous.
