    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.

    I bet he found riding no-handed tricky. That pic made me laugh despite a b@st@rd of a headache, cheers Karlos
    There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate tyres

    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.... :-/
