I want to tell you a story....

I am colourblind, not a big thing that gets in the way much in life you say?

Well not unless friends take the piss and sell you a lime green saddle to 'match' the bright yellow back end of your Rocky Mountain that is.

It's not big or clever! If it wasn't for my missus saying ''why the hell have you got that terrible clashing saddle on your bike'' I would now be riding around on what could only be described as a sh*te looking bike.


Rant over.

al. :wink:

I used to sub-let a shop off a colourblind chap who leased the whole thing.. used to get him to wire plugs when the need arose.

Endless source of juvenile amusement.

My husband is colourblind and when we were young I used to get loads of pleasure seeing him try to reorganise a mixed up packet of coloured pencils

We are so cruel as kids
