It should be an imprisonable offence to have bar ends fixed at that
angle. And to have purple-anodised anything. This isn't 1991, you know.

Speaking of Myra... anyone know how she's doing these days? The offspring must
be growing up fast. I hope she & the family are well.

Cheers, helen s

She and Ellen are apparently well and Myra is trying to get back to cycling
although the bikes are apparently gathering a little dust. Hoping to go on a
Sunday club run with her in the next weekend or so for a catch up.

Thanks for that Tony. When you see her, please pass on my best wishes.

Tell her that if she gets back to riding soo, as a reward she can have a pair of
purple anodised straddle cable hangers that I turned up in my bits box a few
weekends back.

I've never left cycling, in the sense that I ride to work every day
and do most of my running around by bike, including dropping Ellen off
and picking her up from the childminders by bike. I do about 30
miles/week this way.

But I'm trying to get back into longer, recreational rides, and have
dusted off the Airnimal for rides with a local cycling club (only
lightweight bike I have!)

I have sold my bike with all the purple bits, so I'm afraid they
wouldn't be too much use now!

I'll need the victim's name, they must be the last person in the world with
purple anodised bits on their bike, and who else can I offload the damn things
on? :)

Do you have any matching canti brakes? I might be interested as part of
a challenge to make either a super-cool or offensively coloured bike.

I don't think I ever had the brakes, but I do have a set of canti brake levers
to match :)

I'll email you when I'm strong enough to edit your reply-to: address.

This has been bugging me for ages. Why 'Halt! The chicken has a grenade!'?

It's not that bad. I'd send you a direct email, but yours appears to be
uneditable!

It's a quote from a cartoon show I once saw on french cartoon network. ("Tiens"
can mean other things, like "look" or "check it out" etc.) So it's more like
"Hey! That chicken has a grenade!"

In the cartoon, the chicken was running very fast, carrying a grenade. It was a
roast chicken.

My other favourite line was Death saying "Le desolation, c'est moi!" and the
little girl stepping into the frame and replying "Tu reve!"

I hope this helps, but doubt greatly that it will :)

My favourite French phrase is from a Young Gods song and is "Un jour je
n'y crois plus, je le mettrai dans le cul".

Which roughly translates as "The day I stop believing, I'll stick it up
my a*se".

Not terribly useful unless you're Piers Morgan trying to think of
something witty to say when the Mirror Newspapers Board have just sacked
you for publishing porky-pies.
