This post is covering my normal stuff while I am still on an enforced lay-off, I can see light at the end right now, so normal service should be back with us before too long now.
Before my enforced lay-off, I used to pride myself in looking after my bikes, see when I ride them, I put them though the ringer, I abuse them, I hurt them, I beat the crap outta them, so to make sure that they are able to keep on giving, I tend to make sure they get well looked after, or at least I thought I did !!!
I hung my head in shame when I noticed just how bad things had become, and set about putting things right.
An hour later
I’d put it right
and promised myself, it wont happen again, we will see !!!!
I have been on the Langster since the summer and really enjoy riding it, but I noticed about 4 weeks ago, that I felt too stretched out and that, was hurting my back, now as someone with 20k miles under his feet, I should have know better, but 2mins later with the saddle pushed forward and lowered a fraction, my back felt better and my average was still over 19mph, lesson number 2 learnt, the painful way.
Cost of bikes for lack of complexity vs vehicles
Why can I buy a 8 year old car, with air con, electric windows, remote central locking, electronic injectors etc etc etc for £250, yet the same £250 would get me a heavy, poor spec, crappy bike, I just cant for the life of me understand why the costs of bikes are so high for the level of complexity vs cars, I suspect this is one for another day and a full on debate.
