yes i believe 'how to ride your retrobike properly' thread would be great!
Like the Debretts guide to etiquette, the Edwards guide to Retrobiking correctly taking in all aspects of Retrobiking:
The gorrect degree of glaze to fall over your eyes when remembering retro components that you parted with for a song before you knew better;
Ebay purchasing and selling etiquette;
What types of bars it is acceptable to fit bar ends to;
The list goes on!
(Though could you also include a chapter on getting on you Retrobike before riding it. I'd need a mounting block or at least a leg up from my gentleman's gentleman looking at the height of the seat post on that Bonty for I am but a short arse. Though with no chain he'd come in handy for pushing me up the up hill sections.)
Ed, if you get writing now you could get the book printed in time to hit the remainder bins in the post crimbo sales!
