There's one old nag I've got my eye on, or it will be the Giant for me. Sorry

Those were my thoughts, but I wanted at least some choice of gears, brakes that worked... in a manner of speaking, and after the noise I heard coming from the back wheel, I thought the possibility of a bearing seizure (to go along with my own) was a strong possibility.

I also pumped the tyres up and the cracks that are now visible (from space) are pretty impressive.

BTW, we MUST have some photo's, as I promised Max's previous owner I would send him a group shot.

Photos are a must.

But this worrying I hope none of us get followed for our "expensive" bikes :lol:

Can somebody bring a sacrificial lamb to deflect any interest from our gems?

Don't worry about it, if I see anyone looking a bit dodgy, I'll just run over their foot while pushing Max, that should break every bone in there and they will be too busy hopping about to follow us.

There's a hill just outside the centre so they wouldn't get far.

Looks better in photos than real life. It's a right rust bucket with an interesting riding position and strange shifting.
