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.

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.
