Again, after confessional on the MTB chat side, I regret to inform you that I have sinned many, many times regarding road bikes....


I sold my Cinelli road bike at a Cash Converters

I sold my (what turned out to be) Gazzelle AA at a car boot sale

I sold my nevertoberepeatedinmylifetime tip find Campagnolo Record/ Delta parts

Rode my road bikes with MTB SPD

Sold my Campagnolo parts to buy Shimano road parts


(hangs head in shame)

I must get laughed at but I don't care.

Ach, well..............I have mountain SPDs on my road bike so that all my shoes have the same cleats..........the Delta brakes were indeed fine, but nowt wrong with liquidating yer assets.

T'other three, though, yer on yer own..........*shuffles to the side and leans slightly away from LGF* :P

we've probably all been there at some point.
as long as it wasnt with MTB baggy shorts - a big no no.
even jeans and civilian non-battledress has its place for a utility ride
