Re: Sanctions?

We had an old chap at work who was, shall we say, slightly eccentric. One day someone said he was mad, to which he replied that he was the only person there who had a certificate to prove he wasn't. :) And I love (and feel it most appropriate) the way you call that chap on here Cudgel :lol: :wink: ...

Re: What shorts?

I have a couple of pairs of Troy Lee skyline shorts I quite like they are not as garish as some MTB shorts. Have a Velcro Fly and adjustable waiste band. I never use the padded inserts but they look like reasonable quality. They are £80 pound a pair but I have managed to buy both pairs for around £4...

Re: Frame Warranty

Just purchased a Boardman aluminium frame from circa 2013. Whopping creaking noise from the BB any time I go up a hill. I've read there are a lot of issues with Boardmans of this era. Anyone know the warranty situation? Applicable to original owners only? A 6 year old secondhand frame. Are you talk...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

I met three old friends last night (funny I never knew I had so many?) I've put them on the spot and asked them which way they were leaning, I expected they would support me, I was not disappointed.
