oh good, this discussion again. I thought the basic, most fundamental and only thing we could agree on (apart from both pics having the same bike) was 'each to their own' although certain practices may be frowned upon?

^And we don't agree on that. I would rather someone took two shots in one day with different bikes than use a pre-tag which makes it all too easy. Above all, no night shots with inadequate cameras!

Nice one, JC - you've just re-ignited the Great Pre-Tag Debates of ... well it happens pretty much every couple of weeks. Just don't get caught / announce to the world that's what you're planning to do.

Of course, if you go and get Brain-Stew's mysterious posts and move the game on a bit, all will be forgiven.

so since we can't agree on anything, then surely 'each to their own interpretation of the basic premise' is the lowest common denominator? and no reflecto porn?

He did I think, in the previous post with the links rather than pics. Though 'near Goldhawk Road tube' could have been a wee bit more specific.

Right, so the latest tag is my the erstwhile street artist Phlegm, and this piece of work is over near GOldhawk Road tube. Unfortunately post-work winter tags and a blackberry mean crap photos, so here is my tag:
http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7149/6...1d6f4368_b.jpg
(you can vaguely make out my black and white bike against the monochrome background...)

But if you want to see the full thing its glory, this is what it looks like in daylight:
http://www.dailyartfixx.com/wp-conte...don-PHLEGM.jpg

And the clue for the next tag:
You'll have to really work hard to find the link between these two, but if you work hard enough you'll demolish it in no time.

We have a new rule to disagree about, Thanks Will
1. No reflecto porn.
2. No blank or near blank walls.
3. No hogging the game.
4. Locations must be freely accessible to the public.
5. Old and new tags must have the same bicycle
6. The rules may only be broken only if one of the two following clauses apply
a) It is funny
b) You really, really want to
7. Rule 6 does not apply in the case of rule 1.
8. The committee's decision is final.
9. And, tell us where the tag is when you find it

We would love to put the rules in the OP but the mysterious MinhDinh has disappeared and we can't edit his post!

Welcome to the game anyway. It's always nice to have new players.

I know what building Brain Stew is talking about in his last clue (the one near the tag) but scouring the area on google maps hasn't helped!

Well done rhowe - that last tag did drag on a bit really, so I'd propose rule 10:

1. No reflecto porn.
2. No blank or near blank walls.
3. No hogging the game.
4. Locations must be freely accessible to the public.
5. Old and new tags must have the same bicycle
6. The rules may only be broken only if one of the two following clauses apply
a) It is funny
b) You really, really want to
7. Rule 6 does not apply in the case of rule 1.
8. The committee's decision is final.
9. And, tell us where the tag is when you find it
10. And make sure the tag isn't too hard with too cryptic a clue

If you were looking on Google maps, the last clue directed you to Lovells (a passion for Ernie, geddit) and with a bit of help from streetview you should have been able to see the mysterious metal railings:
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=snow...338.15,,0,6.96

Can anyone identify that rider, though?

I'm sure I've read or been told what those white posts are - I'm pretty sure that it's a piece of sculpture made of the leftovers of either some building or something railway-related but try as I might, I can't find any details.

Interesting that everyone recognises the iron-work, for me it's the brick-work that stands out.

The clues on the other hand are just confusing me.

I saw it being erected and I'm slightly miffed at what they claim it's made of, it has extra support up the middle which is cheating in my book.

Might get there for 6, will see how the day pans out.
