Utterly brilliant picture,....
Took some noobs out for a ride today (workmates), one lad has been telling me for months that his forks were crap. Check this out...
I can't stop chuckling at it.
Managed to fix it for him, multi-tool came in useful.

He ordered it on line so he will have done that himself, he's had it about 4 months <¦¬)

This lad has an HNC in engineering, electrical engineering to be fair, but he's not gonna live this one down for a while :-)

I've lost count of the number of kids' bikes I've come across like that.

I bet he found riding no-handed tricky. That pic made me laugh despite a b@st@rd of a headache, cheers Karlos

That's nothing... one of your idiot mates rides one those crap Yeti things, going by that photo.

He could have something there DK - possibly a stroke of genius.
In a similar vein, a mate wanted to adjust the hydraulic disc brakes on his latest bike. Apparently, when he took the cap thing off the lever all this fluid came out but he still couldn't find the cable or adjuster! Seems that brake doesn't work at all now.... :-/
