  • That looks pretty smart Phil image

  • Of course, when we talk about stuffing and mounting our old bicycles we don't mean it in this sense image

  • "Stewart had denied the offence, claiming it was caused by a misunderstanding after he had too much to drink" - God bless the Scottish eh !

  • I can not believe he was taking to court for it.......he was in his own bedroomimageimage

    I had a peugot for my 21st birthday off my first hubby.best pressie that he ever bought me but it went rusty after a few years neglect after i left him.............

    he was not a very good husband but he was brilliant at keeping cars, bikes and kitchen cleanimage

  • I did not realise it was illegal?

  • I hope it is your bike that went rusty !!

  • This is my current bicycle, and I think she's got a great rack:

    Cheers! The frame was custom built for me when I was 15, I gave it a 25th anniversary spruce-up this year.  I effectively replaced it with a Chinese carbon OTP (Planet X) a few years ago but couldn't bring myself to get rid of it.  It comes out when the sun's out and the roads are very dry.  So about three proper rides this year!  image  Hoping for a bit more action next Summer.

    Self-gratification in your own bedroom using inanimate objects?!  (With the door locked...) Isn't that Anne Summers' core business?  Bloody ridiculous!

    (Nice rack Muttley!)

  • I gave my old bike to a friend (who will probably never use it).

    It was made of steel, including the wheels, and weighed a ton.  There was no hope for it.

    I don't anticipate replacing my current bike for a few years!

     

  • My new bike is arriving on wednesday....but will not be ridden for ages.........as my old bike will be my winter bike now
