  1. Had another puncture today (Gatorskins, puncture resistance? I don't think so) still, no problem,
    got all my stuff. Except... the nut that holds the valve was seized! Bugger. You might want to check
    your own little nuts while it's warm and dry. Just a thought. Ride carefully.

    Does medical advice really belong here?

    o)

    By the way, as theres been all this rampant talk of tyres and punctures I'd just like to say that
    I've found the Schwalbe Blizzard Sports that my bike came fitted with have lasted me 2k miles with
    one pinch puncture and one normal puncture. I suspect the pinch one was due to shoddy fitting of the
    tyre in the factory as it was in the first week I had the bike. Other than that no probs at all. The
    rear one needs replacing soon and I'll probably get another or the same.

    Exactly - combined with the slur on the manhood. I'm sure none of the men on this NG have
    *little* ones ;-)

    Well, you see, it's winter, and up here, north of the border, its /cold/, really, really cold.

    I've had to add two items to my toolkit - you know, for those days when when the energy drink goes
    right through you - a magnifying glass and a pair of tweezers.....

    Yes, frequently. Talking of which, how's the 30 miles at this time of year?

    I've been lucky weatherwise -- no snow yesterday, e.g. -- but the wind is atrocious. I managed 15
    miles yesterday before giving up and warming a can of soup

    It hardly bears thinking about. You must be a hardy lot
