    So I went to the police station last night and they said (after three hours of waiting) that they couldn’t do anything as wasn’t in their borough (despite being the only station open). Then go in to the borough it happened in this morning and they essentially told me to fuck off and that they won’t DNA test the bits of sweet I collected off my face and jacket and bike as it’s not a rape or murder.

    Asked if I could get it independently tested would that help, and he said wouldn’t prove a thing as I could have collected his spit off the floor.

    So without witnesses (this happened on the move going through Bank junction so no way I could have found anyone) I’m stuck.

    I’ll report it nonetheless and maybe get in touch with the black cab licence guys, but feels pretty pointless.

    Pretty horrible that these guys can go round spitting at people with total impunity.

    Thanks guys that’s helpful. I cleaned myself up a bit but wiped some of the globules on the pavement where I locked my bike so I’ll see if any there to DNA him. Probably a long shot but worth it.

    I don’t understand how people this angry make it through the day, I think I’d have a stroke by 3pm if I operated at that level!

    Just got spat at twice by this guy at Bank junction. All I did was pull in front of him in the usual bike box (while he was at a red) then hold him up for two seconds (literally) while I waited to turn right. Then got the whole hard man ‘I’m going to floor you’ routine when I stopped to take a pic. Any way of reporting these guys or obtaining footage? Never seen someone so angry over so little and me and my bike were covered in whatever sticky sweet he was chewing which was fucking grim.

    I might be shit at headsets but I’m not that shit!

    Can you fit a 1-1/8 - 1-1/2 tapered fork into a straight 1-1/8 headtube? If so what headset bits and bobs will I need?

    I’m sure this has been asked before but couldn’t find the answer! Cheers for any help!
