    I've got a Ribble too, and although I really like it, it doesn't make ME that "excited" :shock:

    One strongly objects to being called a piece of excrement.

    MODS?

    See that stick?
    You've got the wrong end of it.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Where is the reference to you, it's a reference to the subject :)

  • So old skool he didn't even have bar end shifters
  • But he only has one chain ring and, from the look of it, those rear sprockets run from low to ever so slightly more in 5 or fewer steps, so probably not much gear changing required.

    Connecting loop or one-piece bars that prevents the use of bar-end shifters.

    ...but you're right aaaaaronnnnn, not this sh!t again, very poor effort by FocusZing, who was he expecting to wind up with that *old chestnut :roll:


    * meaning the comment on wearing of helmets being an old chestnut not chris boardman is an old chestnut, in case FocusZing wants to take offense on his behalf :D

    Doesn't taking offence mean that anyone can walk into your garden anytime they want?

    Can't call 'MODS' when the going gets a bit sticky, you bloody cupcake. I'm sure you've had plenty of excrement stuck in your knobblies over the years, flicking off the back wheel and scenting your scalp.

    Old Skool but his position is still far better than most modern pros on their wind tunnel tested bikes.
  • But why isn't he riding a Boardman...?

    Did he get pissed off with the poor customer service at Halfords too....?

    I think someone already did that joke.

    More back-pedalling required.
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    CB made me smile the other day, commentating on the World TT and he spake of the guy who finished 4th "he can't go any faster than that but he could probably carry on for another 4 hours at that speed". I like him.

    You can still use a gear lever mount like this though...

    When Boardman set a 25 mile comp record of 45:57 in '93, he was riding fixed (and wearing a helmet).
