There's two very buggered kenda tyres in my wheelie bin if you want them!
Beer and cake = 2 x vertical pro 2.3s courtesy of theredchilli. :wink:


Thanks but I think I'll pass - dangerous Dave has gone round the verderers on wildslippers so that pretty much means that anything is OK :D

James - you are a cheap date ;)

:oops: Just want to say you have no competition from me. Rode the verderers today with a very fit very patient very young red chilli (the) didn't see much of him unless he stopped! Having not got on a bike for twenty years until last month, I was absolutely hopeless. Mr chilli (James) was a star. Do you all know CPR?


To be fair you have just ridden with the cycling equivalent of god , the man has been known to rip cranks off bikes just by clipping in!! :lol: :lol:


:lol: only once did that happen :twisted:

Yes seen those by IMO they are much too good - there is a lovely Reynolds 500 Claud Butler on eBay at the moment £25 BIN:

However having seen a glimpse of the pile of rubbish that you bought I was inspired to buy something equally nasty :lol: EDIT: Just seen the full bike pic of your Giant. I take the 'rubbish' comment back - that was a blooming bargain!

The crapivator is a good choice too and that is a splendid example - this is going to be fun!

I'd love to see a Raleigh Lizard in the mix and maybe a Townsend or Emmelle :D

I tried to get a Holdsworth, but someone obviously decided they REALLY wanted it and in the end it went for £38 :facepalm:

I thought it was obligatory to have a full susser if you ride trail centres.

The same as if you do have a full susser it is obligatory to ride through the car park with your full face helmet perched on the top of your head, rather like a giant Bowler hat, bouncing up and down on the suspension and trying to pull wheelies.
