Not a fag-o-cycle

Post by asthmatic camel » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:32 am

Not even an electro-fag-o-cycle.

It's an old-man-o-cycle.

With an aluminium frame.

And 21 speed Shimano gears.

And mud guards and pannier rack fitted as standard.

(I did have to fit the swept back handlebars and old man tractor seat from my old bike to make it comfortable for my poor old bones.)

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Quiet elegance is so much more truly gay than vulgar ostentation.

As a horrid old poove, I approve. :clap:

I thought a disk break was when something good finally happened for the disk

I don't, Witness. Any thief wanting to get through the several pounds of ironmongery I routinely carry with me would need a heavy duty angle grinder! Even my panniers and saddle are securely locked to the frame.

[quote="asthmatic camel" a heavy duty angle grinder[/quote]

Are those still legal over there? I heard someone dropped one on their foot and they were subsequently banned.
