    2018 still riding,competition time.

    Lots of big bills lately and all insurance up due to my accident.
    then a puncture on Saturday so new tyres then found out my pads need changing more money lost.

    but and itís a big but I am still riding despite everything.

    today I went to Gloucester to get my annoying gear change fixed yet again
    i was right about the screws that hold the thumb change being bent in the accident as you can see and it was out of adjustment.
    you need it up on a bench I canít do it lying on the floor,I have tried.




    i was nearly killed yesterday when it wouldnít go in gear and I was close to being rammed,then I nearly dropped it when I stalled leaving it in 3rd gear same reason.

    today itís fixed I just ordered new pads then mot next week,so I feel much happier.

    so a simple competition just post a photo of anything bike related that makes you happy and I will choose the one I like.
    Hint its as much about sentiment as photo.

    Another hobby of mine is penknives so the prize is this vintage Swiss Army knife over 18s only.

    I sent it of to Victorinox for new scales and a clean up I fitted new toothpick and tweezers.

    i always have a sak in my bike jacket pocket,so many uses.

    Itís a sub 3Ē non locking blade so UK friendly.

    This week I am using my Dutch army soldier from 1986 I use it all the time.
    from cleaning out stones stuck in the down pipes to cutting fuel hose and even cheese!

    I love the way it had to be cable-tied to the holder.

    Because we all have that one spaz for a mate.
