    I'm logo-averse too, despite being a MAMIL, the bugger is they're pretty damned nice to actually ride.....

    Quite quick too, 51.85 kph (32 mph) for the hour record!

    I refuse to be a 'nice guy', 'complete and utter bastard' would be closer to the truth, crusades and white knights are for religious zealots. I just thought the image was a wrong 'un.

    Would someone please respond in keeping with Festerban's name by banning (presumably) him, see p2470 of Memes thread. First time I've ever felt moved to post on this thread, hopefully the last....

    Are you sure you haven't confused this thread with 'anti', Gaston? I'm particularly impressed by the seatpin the wrong way round and the pad position providing the aerodynamic advantages of a Land Rover. Damn, it's ugly!

    It will be hard work on fixed around Santiago, brilliant everywhere else. Cuba is superb for cycling but there are virtually no shops, I've sent packages of used parts to the local boys a few times! Test EVERYTHING before you go.

    Every cyclist you meet will be friendly. Be very careful if it rains, the road surfaces are ancient and about as grippy as greased ice, I once crashed 3 times in 20 minutes.....

    Were you at the parties? Have we met? Should we share memories of the glories of Welling? Is this my house?

    Kate Bush went to all the same parties as me, she was my doctor's daughter (she was also boring and had terrible skin).

    I knew Boy George before he could apply his own make-up.

    I canned Midge Ure off stage (with many others) when he was with the Rich Kids prior to fucking up Ultravox.

    I had a couple of beers with Debbie Harry in Amsterdam.

    I guess that was a boastpost, now, what's a barber and where's my Zimmer.....
