    Dodge/daftness alert: Yesterday afternoon I spotted a lovely turquoise Bob Jackson, small frame, parked outside the Brixton McDonalds with the key left in its lock - house keys also attached.

    I hope whoever left it this way had a lucky escape, but the likelihood is it's now being ridden by a guy seven times too big for it with streamers billowing out the bar ends.

    This belonged to a friend - and she's gutted as might well be expected
    Here's a couple of crappy photos

    Audax frame - 20" mavic rims campag throughout
    If you see it could you give her a call ?

    Thanks!

    Finally gave up on running cottered cranks on my old Claud Olympic Sprint. They looked the part but the endless hammering and spannering to keep them tight took it's toll. Just fitted a Sugino Maxy Chainset from http://www.velosolo.co.uk/shopcrank.html­
    (brilliant - next day delivery) and it runs so sweet I can't imagine why / how I lasted so long on the old cotters...
