Come to Norths, climb the hill. Smile after, if not during.

    I've made it to the Corny @cornelius_blackfoot shortlist.

    I was riding a hybrid, but when I had to pay £100 for a new set of sprockets, thought I needed something simpler. Bought, and still have, a Lemond Fillmore but I am sure I spent hours trying to work out why a Langster was the right idea. My first post related to chain stretch, and if I had paid more attention to the 'slack chain' posts I would have understood.

    Went to Norths because the hill was a challenge, and stayed for a number of years. I have never lived in North London.

    The forum is solely to blame for the 2 bikes behind me in the study, and others downstairs, but also for some life long friendships.

    PS I clearly spent far too long tagging many threads, but mainly the Norths one

    I thought big cities had inner tube dispensers nowadays.

    Only in London's famous east London.

    These days if kids get a puncture they just throw the bike away and buy a new one from Halfords. Then post about it on tiktok.

    Rep, crucially they always throw it in a canal.

    What M_V said, Rema is tip-top

    Only if it is to LFGSS+

    1. The plus signifies the broad church that is gravel, and more gravel.
    2. Why not just change the G to Gravel and then it won't make sense.

    I saw last week, Brompton send a 'referal' email, if you are on Brompton.com use my name [Arvinder Mangat] or this code -
