    DAS'd a forum jersey cycling past Vans Kingston yesterday afternoon... Got the attention of the shoppers, at least.

    Went into my local to pick up a mooer shimverb as they were showing one in stock online. Turns out they were sold out, all the apologies etc, before I could leave he whips out a Strymon Bluesky and says that mooer is just a copy of this... JESUS! I'd never leave my room again if I had one, sounds amazing! Just need a few more ££

    Doing the London BMX series again this year. Ride at Burgess Park on Sundays, sometimes Hammersmith pump track if I'm slacking.

    I raced last year on a £20 gumtree GT, as long as your gearing is ok anything will do to start. No restrictions on tracks, just no pegs, rear brake, long sleeves and legs covered + a full face helmet and gloves.
    A race specific frame will have a longer rear end, Haro do a decent entry bike.

    Here's mine for this year - another gumtree deal and my first ever bike with carbon forks! Guy had put the wrong crown race on when building it up so I reckon he thought it was broke.

    #Commentatorgonnacomment said Alonso was having to lift a lot into the corners and putting power down later so unfair to blame Honda atm, it's the car and a lack of grip. I forget who said that today, though.

    I might have a new full set at work if you want to collect from KT9 1DR. I could knock some off the online prices
    I'm not in until the weekend but drop me a message with what you want and I'll have a look and sort a price.

    Materials used. Cheaper ones tend to soften quickly* so you'll have to buy a new one sooner. I'm fine with the cheaper ones but only use it occasionally on my legs when they're a bit tight.

    *eg. 125kg power lifter rolling out 3 times a day.

    every time I go into C London for the day I easily burn £20-30 on coffees, a simple lunch & a few bottles of water then it's not that expensive.

    There are quite a few people who would consider that expensive. If you're on a London living wage with two children and private renting you just can't do that.

    Yep, it is too expensive and that's the reason I stopped going.
    And at the other extreme there is a national standard BMX track in Burgess Park that's got hours of access time when it's free to use, with free bike and helmet hire.
