Haha username!

Take it back to halfords and have them look at it. If you know how, tighten the saddle bolt and seatclamp.

Clean it all first may also help.

Yep i know exactly how it is!
The wait time may have been due to the diary being full if thats a system they run.

Welcome and let us know how you get on.

the relatives of 6 and a half million jews remember that name too? :twisted:

take a second to think about it - how would you feel if someone was using the name of someone reponsible for the murder of your grand parents?

That is true but its history.

What i if used michael jackson as my username, would i have to worry what mcauly caulkin felt?

Were all treading on toes somewhere in the past, present or future!

But it is a tad crude.

Do you think folks may also get offended by the character Eddie Hitler in Bottom?

Not a great comparison, but the same surname.

i have a noisy seat post/saddle.given up taking it apart a cleaning it. should maybe just lose some weight...
it could be that the seatpost isn't tightened up enough/isn't the correct size (it is from Halfords after all)
mine gives me no end of complaints, but i am using a seat post with a shim, which (depending on the climate) moans all the bloody way to work and back.

my crank also moans all the bloody time.
i think my bike may have been Victor Meldrew in a previous life......
