The Funniest Post Ever

Postby Mick F » 15 Jan 2007, 9:47pm

The funniest post I ever read was in the For Sale, Swaps Wanted section.

It was to do with a clip to secure a Primus Stove onto a cross bar.

Because this section 'expires', the Search facility can't find it.

What a shame. I wanted to resurrect the subject to spice up a new thread.

Any way it can be done?

If it's desperate I might be able to extract it from the backups. Do you remember roughly when it was visible?

As one of the main participants in the Primus clip madness I say 'don't let's pump that one up again'. (Excuse me sticking my oar in but I regret I was also responsible for a lot of ripples in the folding kayak saga.)

No, it's not 'desperate'. I just wanted a smiley re-visit. I think it was early summer last year.

As for the folding kayak ......

Thanks anyway.

Looking at your bike in that little pic, you should note that r2 is selling some excellent rims at a reasonable price - made round to go round :wink:

Thanks tc - I saw those - but mine are 26ins - and nothing wrong with them that a couple of hours with a spokey wont put right.

Jac, your bike is obviously fixed wheel, so will we be seeing it on the Fixed Gear Gallery site?

There was an article in the Gazette about 1991 about using a banana to treat saddle sores, one could eat the banana after
Someone wrote to complain, 'it was the most perfectly disgusting thing I have read for a long time, it made me laugh until I cried' :)
Utility offered a tub of grease for sale recently, I thought that thread could have been the new Primus Stove but it has been locked :wink:

My question is this. Was the Primus meant to be lit, and cooking something, whilst attached to the top tube? And was the cyclist meant to be actually riding the bike at the time? :shock:

I don't think the 'shock' smiley is emphatic enough!

There used to be a firm called Terry (may still exist) who made, among other things, spring-based accessories for bikes, including clips to hold a pump on a frame without pump pegs, a stopwatch holder (widely used by time trial riders) a hockey stick carrier and a clip for carrying a primus stove (unlit.)
