sq225917,

May I call you sq for short?

In addition to cycling adventures, I worked for a San Francisco rock band in the sixties, which also generated a lot of stories. I have smoked a joint with Jerry Garcia, and the only time I spoke to Janis Joplin, she was wearing red panties and red shoes, and, I believe, a smile.

Tea? Do you have anything with a little more kick to it? We might be up late.

Back in the 80's when I was getting into this whole biking thing, I used to read books about the 'repack' riders, usually in awe. It brings a great big smile to my face knowing that you're here and more importantly, you're approachable!

why can't more companies be like that? Don't they realise that it's the small things that make customers come back time and again. It may only be a £5 spacer this time, but now they're in your good books you'll more likely buy a big item next time... just plain common sense... why can't everybody do that? :D
