    How long ago did I recommend a session with Tom Dowie? Sounds like you had a good day at Chicksands, there's always a good vibe there and the Thai food alone should be enough of a draw.

    Never mind that, TJ Hughes has a sale on teenage mutant nina turtles

    No, it's akin to a swarm of chubby and inadvisably tightly clad bees invading my picnic and stinging up my croissant.

    I've been to RP once, it was full of cyclists riding like wank-canoes, it really irritated me. I assume it's one massive strava segment, judging by the knobbery I saw.

    Which raises an interesting thought. Let's say someone rides to work every day. Say they are lucky enough to get five weeks' holiday a year, plus Christmas, and a couple of days off with a hangover or whatever. That's 45 weeks x 5 days, or 225 journeys into work a year. Suppose they perform the exact same flashy manoeuvre every morning, and come to absolutely no harm for four years in a row. Clearly then, they are an expert, and their judgement of what is safe is sound.

    The thing is, would you fly in a plane, if that plane crashed and burned without warning on average every 901 journeys?>

    a 1/901 chance of it crashing is a pretty small chance

    8/10 would fly

    Donner Dach (lovely felafel wraps) on Simon Dach Straße is cheap street food if you're passing by, seats out from allow you to sit and watch the thousands of wandering leute

    They tend not to go quite as dark in actual use as the lens is shaded to some degree by a cyclist's posture, more so if you ride with a helmet. But they're generally good all-rounders.

    That's a bangin' frame, looks great. What forks are you gonna stick on it? I think the Latitude is 130mm, I rode Genesis's Alptitude which was longer travel and it spanked everything like a like a randy Yeti.

    Good choice
