    It’s a plumber’s pipe bending kit. Used for copper, no good for steel.

    Also, my Aussie wife has gone to Berlin for a few days and thus I’m spared the usual awkward silence as she tries not to gloat.

    Ah, that’s why it was mad busy around the Oval last night on the way home.

    What do you get if you cross Bill Clinton and Donald Trump?

    You get found dead in your cell.

    Oddly enough I discovered that only this afternoon while trying to find info on a PW tandem hub.

    Profil are good, you can also find some Cinelli LA 84 bars too. I used those before moving on to Mavic bars. Still got the set-up in my garage with a set of Profil clip-ons.

    Clean forgot - I was riding down the cycle highway on the north side of the river from Blackfriars to Westminster on Friday evening, on my way to meet the wife in Pimlico, about 3/4 of the way along the riverbank and a woman steps out in front of me from the pavement without even looking. Locked up and scrubbed off most of it before I hit her. Her husband does his nut and starts bawling at me in a broad Northern accent that I’m a fookin twat. His wife is looking shocked and holding her chest but he’s more interested in having a go at me, despite the fact she stepped off the pavement right in front of me. I get off the bike and he comes at me, and I remember that I’m on my first week back on the bike after hand surgery and now have a right paw full of pins, plates and screws and punching a Fat Yorkie is probably not the smartest thing. So I square up and point out it’s a fucking cycle lane and he should be looking out for his wife rather than looking to act the hard man. He was properly red-faced and about to have a stroke, too.

    @Hamham is right. People are cunts.
