One person's £200 is cheap, another person's expensive.
I agree - I balked at the £300 cost of the Sugino,

Both cartridge and cage bearings can be restored / made more robust with a bag of loose balls a pot of grease and tweezers. Fill the race with grease, push in balls n-1 and assemble. For cartridges the shields can be popped out, the cage punched out and balls replaced in the same manner.

Ah, I see. That makes a lot more sense. It didn't seem very likely someone had parked a bus up there.

Not even Cliff or Vyvyan's map-reading would have been that bad.

As for the bomber, that's none too plausible either, though I'm sure that Giorgio Tsoukalos off the History Channel has a theory.

Fair few of the top shelf riders from prior years have not got a spot.  I think its possible that the guaranteed reentry requires a higher placing this year, though I may be wrong..it maybe that some of those riders have skipped a year so their previous top placing doesn't count, I'm not sure.
 There is still a policy of accepting all females (which I think is a good philosophy) and there has been the largest contingent entered for #7 to date.

No, it was a WW2 bomber found on the moon, the bus was found at the South Pole. Allegedly.

Fettled a friend's 3 speed Archer hub back into service which was very gratifying as I'd not worked on one before. Basically the guide rod had managed to become unthreaded and the funny tensioning clamp Gizmo had gone loose. Popped it back in, refit the cables, put some insulating tape around the chainstay to make the clamp stick in place, calibrated the shifter, jobs a goodun.

Excellent. Anyone remember when Homer got sent to Hell and his eternal torment was that he had to eat doughnuts forever (obviously, that's the eternal bit). Hell, of course, ran out of doughnuts because Homer had eaten them all.

Reminds me, a friend of mine sometimes tries to put me off when we're presenting on a panel with RDS (randomly, depraved statistics) about the audience. She once whispered 'statistically speaking, 4.7% of the men in the audience are wearing women's underwear.' My rejoinder was that '2 % probably had a buttplug inserted."

So, anyway, those were two concepts I didn't want anywhere near the interior of my skull when I stood up to speak because they're impossible to remove. Well, not without the help of a clever Italian doctor and home-made medical contraption.

As you were.
