Sony MZ-S1 S2 Sports NET MD Walkman Player/Recorder..Like I said..don't get me wrong..I like U2 but much like the band Rush, I liked them much more before they became "commericalized"...Not to mention that Bono needs to know his place...he is a singer not a statesman....

Each disk can hold anywhere from 2 to 5 cd's..depending on recording mode etc...The thing I like is if I drop it while riding, I haven't lost anything...drop that Ipod and it gets run over you have lost not only the player but the associated memory etc...Just something to think about....
Riding !!! Never heard you mention that one before.

Thanks for the info on the Sony. There sure are a lot of celebrities out there these days that are trying to push different agendas aren't there!

i think its the intermediate stage...Grace under Pressure...thats my fave.

i like the old stuff like the the trees, tom saywer etc but i like the high tech stuff too.

my MD player is a old one i got in in 1999 its a Panasonic and was bloody expensive in its day (£200) its doesnt have the facility to cram 6 albums onto one disc and it has no internet/usb connection. The sound and build quailty is still stunning and i use it most days in the car. I have always liked Sony as a brand but i rate Panasonic and JVC just as good.

Yes very good but my all time favorite is "2112".. I remember my older brother playing that in his car and people riding up as asking..."Who is that?" I've got to get that 8 track......

Liberal media eh. That Fred Kaplan man of yours keeps e-mailing me to find him a column over here, I'm trying 'The Spectator' for him, should suit his irreverent style. Me being Fred and he being Fred we get along just fine. Honest.
What have you learn't about bike racing that might be useful? I never learn't anything from it apart from the fact that you make friends for life.

Right.....but you aren't Fred so.....

When I first logged on here I didn't even know what size bike I wanted let alone which brand, model or frame material. What type of shoes, cleats, cycle computer etc...Received some very good advice here..Learn something new everyday. Even learn a thing or two from you slobs...

Re: Favourite music / musician

Anyone recall this song:

Everybody’s sayin’ that the Scatman stutters
But doesn’t ever stutter when he sings.
But what you don’t know I’m gonna tell you right now
That the stutter and the scat is the same thing.
Yo I’m the Scatman.

Haven't been able to find Scatman John's music anywhere and even on the net it's pretty scarce.

Good music to ride to, though.

You're right, I suppose that I take the knowledge gained over 54 years for granted.... but some of the stupid q's asked are beyond belief.
How you lot transformed a chain into a drivetrain (oxymoron) and Campagnolo, always known to us as Campag. for short into Campy which sounds like a fag name. I cannot for the life of me imagine a UK cyclist saying Campy, he'd get laughed out of town with limp wristed gestures.

Can't vouch for the Drive train dillio but I assume the "campy" moniker came from the word camp i.e. "providing sophisticated amusement". So compared to shimano...the use of "Campy" parts provide us with a little "sophisticated amusement"???

So you can have a Campy Shimmy with music by Drivetrain then.
