Cheers SBD - I tells ya, when you seen as many of these things as I have, and had as many stoopit
eejit fecking little kids on 'em pedal their damned arses off to catch you (usually as you are
nearing a junction) because you just passed 'em doin' near 30 mph and _without_ 'rear suspension'
(the horror, the shame!!!!), then 'jump' (read 'thud') off a curb right in front of you, before
locking up the wheels to avoid the bus coming across the junction and nearly taking you out into the
bargain, they kinda hold a special place in your heart (deep breath!)......
Shaun aRe - just 'fettled' one of these things for the g/f's daughter - it had an 's' shaped rear
wheel (Mallet, feet, hands, fists then a bit of spoke key work to make it a 'viable' wheel - got
twisted 'thudding' off a curb), one brake block mounted near 90 degrees to the front rim, the others
all over the place, and the 'mech' limit screws all farted up, loose headset (etsuckingfetera!). It
is nearly new.....
