Just jumped out on the sirrus 40mins ago and got about a mile or so along the cycle path heading towards Johnstone when this happend felt the rear wheel lock managed to stop without too much drama's lucky it wasnt on the road and only a short distance from the flat had been planning on ridinging out to Bridge of Weir and had no tools :shock:

Think I'll get away with putting the rear mech in a vice to straighten it out :wink:

How did that happen on a paved cycle track ? And what were you doing along there at this time on a dark winter night? I wouldn't be riding thru these bridges in the dark. I came along there today and there was loads of wee neds and jakies even during the day....

Was out trying the new lights. You normally see some wee fuds along the cycle path near the back of Malcom's yard but never had any aggro off them. Unlike the wee knobs who thought kicking the passenger side rear view mirror off the car parked O/S the other halfs house on Sat night.

Not sure how it cracked just went not one for curb bouncing with it must have had fatuige in it for a bit and deicided to die. Were will I get a new hanger?
