sucess all round


at last, the freewheel is finally liberated!! all it took was, an 18m trail run, consuming my own weight in bread and cheese and a bit of brain over brawn.

we had a very cold and damp run over vikki's local trails. she's mid marathon training. this was her furthest run to date. she finished strong and i'm very impressed.

even more impressive was our post run spread. bread, cheese, olives, cheese, chocolate milk, cheese. and even more impressive than that, was our successful bike fettle.

can i come again?

Whey to go guys!

Sounds like a super hard day out. I guess you just had to Gruyère and bear it.

What happened to the cake, Kate? I just read cheese. No cake? Well done. 18 Miles - I'd only ever ride such a distance. :-)

Can you now come and remove my freewheel please? I've bent the adapter while trying the excess force method. I obviously now need to try the brains method.

18miles, wow!!
I'm not even riding that far

red- did you bolt the tool onto the axle? that was vikki's 'brains' moment and made everything much easier.
