I think they'll be alot of complaints from cyclists once they damage their £700 upwards pride and joys doing that :twisted:

    Don't get this no pressure washer thing. Using it on tyres, frame and sort of like he did on the cassette/freewheel on lowish pressure is fine, it is when you allow it to flow out and into bearings where it's a problem.

    And what Kev says!

    Looks pretty decent that, I might get one. tbh we have decent pressure in our hose pipe, more than enough for cleaning even the worst muck off my bike. But the back yard is a disgrace and could really do with a pressure wash.

    What a bunch of c*nts. I know someone who pressure washed their bike once, six months later they had herpes. Coincidence? I don't think so.

    What you mean like the wheel bearings which can be accessed just by the cassette?

    People spend £700 on a bike? Surely not? :shock:

    He wasn't wearing ear defenders, eye protection or gloves either.
  • Not as bad as the Evans cycles one with Chris Hoy shaving his legs. I bet there will be tons of complaints .

    Minor issue. I heard rumours he already has bad aids worms. But they may just be malicious rumours.

    Bad aids can be a bugger to shift.
