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.

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.
