    I believe the stem is 1 1/8. It fits into my old Raleighframe.

    I'm heading back to Newc in a week or two for round two at Uni and thought I'd make myself a bit more social on the riding front. If you see me around stop me and say hi.

    My mug with the missus - duck face n all...

    i got a late 50s triumph roadster, owned from new by my ex's granddad. Before he died he gave it to me in the hope I'd use it more than him. Nice man, nice bike. Did a full refurb on it a couple of years back and its my sunny day cruiser now.

    Newcastle Uni life can take its toll...

    I had gone round to the next door flat in my block to help celebrate whatever it was we had decided needing celebrating that night and quickly got into the swing of drinking. We decided to get pissed in the flat and then stumble off into the city centre later.

    After a couple of hours and a large amount of vodka, I realised that I needed to slow down before heading out so decided to get some fresh air and take a moment to my severely drunken self.

    In the lift back up to the flat I decided I needed a loo stop too before heading into town with everyone who were now leaving. I was found 4 hours later still on my loo stop vomit everywhere and trousers round my ankles. The next door flat had to break the door down because I apparently refused to let them in til i 'sobered myself up'...
