Have you not seen one of the argos (I think) TV adverts - plain to see the bike has the forks on backwards - my wife thinks I am sad for even noticing though.

The Argos ad cracks me up every time - why have they not pulled it? Someone must have told them by now!

So, his friend spent £750 on a push iron and did'nt know which way round the forks were supposed to be?
