    I've wound tinsel round the rack, lights and flagpole on the bent (making sure to leave the lights
    showing - all seven of them). The miserable bastards in the Morning Hate[1] were just as aggressive
    and tedious as ever, but the Evening Hate was much more pleasant - several people hooted and waved.
    Which was nice.

    [1] Expression nicked from World War I, which I'm assured is no longer using it.

    Probably not. If the shop left the pedals off then legally it wasn't a bike, it was a collection of
    bicycle parts and none of the regs about sale of bikes would apply.
