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
