    MDee This whole Arrospok thing has just turned into unfunny racism. I wouldn't want to hit up HK fixed and find a whole thread ripping the piss out of the roast beefs, because someone from the uk tried to flog some wares on there. I have a friend who's chinese and into bikes, and this thread makes me ashamed to be on this otherwise awesome forum. It's just not funny.

    While we are at it how good is everyones chinese on here? Exactly.

    'turned into'...which picture exactly had us crossing the line? as other people said, it was a french guy and can really be applied to any person mispronouncing english words. ok...part of it indirectly sorta comes from the vietnamese hooker in the 2nd part of 'full metal jacket', but i don't see any of this is directly racist. and most of the photochops are making fun of anglo-american culture.

    now for more arro!

    Platini Cinelli F&F

    This is more like it at GBP440...

    as much as i would love a cinelli frame, the geometry on this leads me to be very disappointed in cinelli.

    bombadil commuters always seem to try drafting my when i'm cycling down the mall towards buckingham palace. i usually slow right down and wave them past me, then they swear.

    seriously....how much time are you saving by drafting on your city commute?
    if you have 20miles worth of open road suburban riding to do on your commute, a draft might help (so would a skinsuit, aerobars, and an aerohelmet), but in the middle of london?

    Momentum Ribble have got some special offers which might interest people here:

    No.1 Miche Pistard tubular wheelset £120 http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/details.as­p?D=&Cat=&Section=&GenCode=MCHEWHFT0200

    at almost 2kilos you shouldn't be allowed to market those as 'lightweight track wheels'
