good to get back into a bit of banter with you sir!
I thought you were delving into History with Richard the third.

Did you read my contributions to the Guardian's blog on that subject?

I hope it is him....anything that brings an interest to the 15th century is good...my 'period' whilst at university.....but it has brought out a lot of sentimentality about him...for him to lose the crown at Bosworth.....best analogy...imagine Richard was a TdF rider and after the last timetrial he was 10 minutes up on his nearest rival....Henry Tudor....only 120km procession into Paris.....and then losing the lead/crown.....but that said R3 was not a great king and Henry VII was quite good in much the same way as Edward IV......though if i had to choose....I would be a Yorkist!

My pictures are up now. As seems to be the general theme of my pictures lately they're crap.

Notes on clean up:
There is a small crack on the headset (doesn't effect performance)
Chain will need replacing soon
Chainwheels and brake blocks would benefit from replacement although fine for a fair few miles yet.

(these notes are for absolute honesty)

Please be sure to check all the pics on the PB link for condition.
