At least you two aren't trying to track down ancient 70's nobly tyres in size 20x 1 3/8 :facepalm:

Scrap that I've found a lovely pair of new Panaracer nobblies, in Yellow :shock: in the correct size and for £10 posted, bargain.

Got £5 left to fix a puncture and sort some replacement pedals

Got mine too.

I've just got back from Taunton, and after quickly adjust of the seat post, I have ridden mine up and down the road :twisted: albeit in the one working gear it has :facepalm:

The brakes will need some ....attention and I think I'll have to sort out cables for both the shifters, but other than that, and some more air in the tyres, we could possibly be good to slow... erm sorry GO!

Photo's to follow.

Ah but mine is an automatic with personality, you press the little lever and wait, and then when it feels like maybe 5 seconds or maybe 2 minutes later it will change for you. :lol:

When it goes up hill, I have a bottom gear called running alongside.
