Pictures or it didn't happen!
Class always shows Dave, just as the cream rises to the top.
Talking of the dreaded hiss, which we were, I had the world's slowest flat last week. Most mornings I give the tyres a pinch as I park the bike in the garage; if my fingers meet in the middle I know it's time to look for the pump. But every morning for about ten days I would pinch, pause and pinch again; I couldn't make up my mind if the rear was softer or not. Eventually my normal sunny optimism gave way to reality and I snapped on the pump head to find a pressure of about 25psi. Not far below the recommended 90 minimum!
Up to my elbows in warm water it took about ten minutes to locate the tiny dribble of bubbles, the weakest I've ever seen. A bit like words of wisdom escaping Trump's lips.
And that concludes another gripping episode of cycling life at the cutting edge. Hello, are you still awake?
