Ok, it is a little "off-topic" but it is bike related.
This may not be earth shattering but it made me smile that Pete Tomkins (aka Mr Crud) replied to a query I sent to crud products.
He didn't have the part I wanted but it still made me smile 8)

Me and my Dad went on a biking holiday in the late 90's/early noughties and Mr.Crud and his son were staying in the same chalet. Jamie came out on one of the rides with us too. He was very impressive to watch on a bike! Still got a signed chalet brochure from him.

He couldn't help but it got me thinking and gave me an idea for the problem I had.
Solved it too :D
I managed to get my old race guard to fit the frame on my 456.
I fitted a hinged clamp to it (taken off a speed stuff guard) so that it fits, quite successfully.
I'll take a pic and post up soon.

The only other 'celeb' who's personally replied to me is Joe Rogan (Fear Factor & UFC host).
