Re: 90 Yr old cyclist stripped of World Champs in Drug Test

If steroids make you look and act that fit at 90 then count me in.

Cheating in competition is not on though but really, if using drugs helped you carry on being that fit into your 90's , why wouldn't you use them.?

Re: Alpkit

No idea what their kit is like as they have never had anything in stock that I was looking for at the time.

Looks good in the pictures, but the pictures seem to be all they have.

Nice kit, rubbish company.

Re: TV licensing...

They are not enforcers ! They are sales people. Ask to see their ID and it states that on it. Sales person for TVL. If they ever do manage to come to your door, they have no powers, at all. The only way you can be prosecuted for no license is if you freely admit to it. Remember the magic words. &quo...

Re: Rack top bag?

Have a look at Lomo.

They do a top box / rack back that is superb, and great value as well.

Re: TV licensing...

People don`t still think they are "inspectors" do they ?

They are sales staff. And they have no right to approach you in any way.

Pet hate of mine, TVL.
