    so the wheels went and you trashed the whole bike :lol: ... you do know you can get new wheels don't you but I guess that makes sense when a pet breaks its leg or starts to limp ... its straight down the vet to have it put down

    Cheers mate I was the daft sod that had to fish it out. Best thing to do is give them to a local bike charity for recycling for the great unwashed, unemployable or bikes for Africa.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    2 of my old bikes have gone to Africa now ...... I expect the ones from when I was a kid my parents took to the dump, which is a shame as I would love to revive my old Raleigh Equip

    My bikes tend to get reincarnated. I doubt mine would ever die of their own accord, they would euthanised.

    I can think of much better words than fool.

    Selfish spazwangle maybe?

    There's a bike recycling project in my local town which uses the workshop to provide work opportunities whilst they bring bikes back to life, and then sell them at a low cost into the local community to increase cycling. Seems like the equivalent of carrying a donor card, rather than sending the body up as an offering on a pyre.

    My "Sold Items" page on Pinkbike read likes an obituary for all my old bikes.
