1 Grash - Eastern Road on Sun 13 Jan 2013, 02:23

pale Hi guys n gals,

Went out earlier today and had a head on crash with another cyclist on Eastern road. Had just crossed the entrance to The Harvester and negotiating that blind bend round that bush n collided with a Frenchman head on. Was doing bout 15mph at time and came to dead stop. Front wheel buckled handle bars need re-aligning and may be a bit of damage to front frks! boo hoo. I have a few crazes and bruises and bit of a head ache. Pride hurt more! Bike is ooa for a bit, hopefully back next sunday. Take care out there gang. peace x

I wonder if that's the same Frenchman that nearly hit me head on along eastern road on bonfire night as he was busy watching the fireworks?

Very ouch :s
Chain- £20
Wheel- £50-£80?
Not quite sure what you mean by cartridge? Bearings?

£100+ for a service???
I hope I have missed something otherwise I would be questioning Cycleworld!

You obviously haven't discovered the gold chains yet then? Bit of bling to brighten up Southsea seafront...

Nope I didn't realise Mr T had his own line of bike components :p do you put it round your neck or round the chain rings?

Surely being able to say "I'm rolling on 29" rims" is gangster enough?
