    Ticketty Tick.

    As the (in)famous Binkster's freehub gave its last in sunny (!) North Yorkshire the weekend before
    last, the brain people (they don't get out much) of planet Chequer realised that money had to be
    spent on bicycle type parts for further forward peddaly things to happen.

    So props to the fluffy and forthright bicycle tinkerers of the Bristol Bike Workshop for providing
    me with a nearly new (very light use by the look of it - the goop's spotless) LX rear hub, complete
    with a working ticky bit, for twelve quid (international currency conversion ~6pints*).

    The california built lowbrow retrokitsch anodised horse of death rides again. Woo!

    Sunny? I'm almost not pale white for once in my life, that's how bloody sunny it was.

    Marvelous. Is this the first time that Binkie will have had a working, happy rear wheel since I
    first met you all those years ago?
