    Typical urban 4x4 mentality right there.

    An otherwise nice ride, made all the more enjoyable by being my first fixed gear ride for about 4 months.

    You are doing 'winter bike' all wrong. Think of your expensive groupset drivetrain thingy.

    btw whenever I read your forum moniker I always imagine you are from Hull, where the word Total is actually pronounced Turtle.

    @BRM also they are mismatching veneers... which I could fix. Hmmmm. The guy seemed to think the cabs were OK, not perfect though.

    Thing is, K hates em anyway, no matter what I do to them. Really want some low stands (about 6 inches) but that would make it worse at home.

    Maybe I should just re-veneer them and flog them.

    I know what you mean about people seeming to think they can make up rules that they think are rules. I can't stand all that yellow fluoro clothing most cyclists seem to think is obligatory. I had a bus driver telling me I was supposed to wear it the other day, at about 7:45 am in Victoria. I'm on a really High Viz bike, really good lights on, reflector bits all over it, and on my shoes, and he's telling me I should be wearing 'reflctory stuff' up high because 'that's where I'm looking' according to him. Like you can only see on a plane at 5ft off the ground ... what?

    I ride with lights on almost all the time. Certainly on grey days like this - basically only when I want to charge my phone do I not. Why would you not? But then, that's because I don't wear the flouro clothing, and I tend to be using dynamos more often than not.

    @BRM Well I got my LGMs re-foamed and replaced some connector hardware, and got some covers made in the style of the originals for them, with some new clips to hang them on as some of the old ones were snapped. Didn't get anything electronic done - Nick was adamant: 'If it aint broken...'.

    Now regretting not asking for new veneers. Mine are pretty tatty.

    Should I? Should I? Nggggg

    Oh thanks. Someone did say that earlier but I somehow thought it was a pisstake.

    @kl cheeky chops. I guess I don't know this name cos I never saw Breaking Bad or whatever. meh. I'm more into the classics where it's all about Laudanum.

    Hahah damn right i am, you boys got all the good track shit over seas. And your bike thief's sound just as idiotic as ours…

    I'd say they're mostly a lot more organised than your two tweakers. What the F is a tweaker btw?

    Pacenti hubs for 6sp freewheel? Really? I have this idea Pacenti is a fairly recent company... I know they make 11sp hubs now.
