I'm quite new to this forum so can any one tell me why everyone loves to wind up freehub?

    I have no idea, but can't resist the trend.

    I want to know why his bike does not fit him?

    Yeah, is that still for sale? I could do with an old banger to transport my bikes about...

    Old banger - you mean classic car surely.

    it's a hard life if you don't weaken.

    The 605 is one of the few Peugeots I could covet. And it was in one of the coolest film car chases. Mind you, I've got a thing for unloved old eurobarges.

    Is it like this one?

    I might make him an offer if he can tax & MOT it for me. You could easily fit a couple of bikes in there.

    Herd mentality, with a bit of cyber bullying thrown in.

    I asked him if he had changed the cambelt and he didnt reply so I would be a bit careful if I were you.

    Hmm. I once had a Citroen XM — the other car in the Ronin chase (apart from the mythical Mercedes 450SEL 6.9) — which died when the cambelt failed. It did so, inimitably, in the fast lane of the north circular — and in those cars, loss of power means loss of everything, steering, suspension, the lot. The manouvre to the hard shoulder was entertaining.

    Me Mam had a 605 and the cambelt jumped on that, she was lucky no real damage. I had a 16v Clio and the cambelt went on that, I wasnt so lucky, I bent 9 valves iirc :cry:

    There's no such thing as a 'fast lane' :roll:

    That is some splendid internet pedantry. To some people, who may number in the majority, the fast lane is a casual term for the the outside lane — that one nearest the central reservation. On a motorway, that lane is reserved for overtaking. On the north circular, it's a free-for-all.

    All 3 lanes of the N Circ are passing lanes and the outside lane is the "ok to break the speed limit lane", apparently :shock: .

    Ok to nearly double it if you're in a scaff truck or an Iveco Daily, presumably. Hold onto your hat.

    Defo can't be NapD's lurve child, heard his crank is not parallel and his valves are pointing the wrong way, read into that what you will (literally)....
