Re: Ssh, bikes have ears!

Are you quite sure it wasn't the Fairies? After all, what with so many cyclists fitting Marathons, Armadillos, etc., the poor little creatures are having a tough time hunting down new 'victims'. Perhaps they sometimes turn their attention to drive trains? *I think I'm going to regret having made thi...
