Re: A question of aesthetics.

Those little holes in Steel frames?

You know those holes, the ones at the rear drop outs and a few other places on Steel frames, I assume they were there to allow gas to escape when the frame tubes were being welded? I was planning to give my Singular Swift frame a dose of frame saver type stuff and the block those holes up, I then th...

Re: £190 still available - If You Are About To Buy From Ra-Pha Crikey, how much

I am sorry but this is of no help to you selling your vouchers, but I have just googled £100 note and to my surprise they are still legal tender in both Scotland and Ireland.
£190 notes were not mentioned though!

Re: ever wish you were strong enough to ride single speed ?

I think everyone is strong enough to ride single speed! Just that the less fit you are the more walking you do. I am 53 not very fit and a little over weight but SS suits me perfectly, I ride what I can and walk what I can't. There is no pressure to ride every hill. I have far more success on group ...
