The boy was wearing a fireman’s helmet and had the wagon tied to a dog and a cat. The fire fighter said, “Hey, little partner, what are yo...

Re: Super Tuesday count

They're doing another one this Tuesday 27th for the important sites that were missed on the 6th. As an inducement they are offering a $50 donation to a nominated charity. If they'd just give me the $50 I'd be there in a shot. My anti-depressant medicine costs $50 a carton. The $50 charity donation ...

Re: Teaching kids to ride

There is a new facility at Bayswater for the little ones with its own set of traffic lights but the instructions are definitely DIY.

HELL EXPLAINED: The following is an actual question given on a University of Arizona physics mid-term, and an actual answer turned in by a student. The answer by one student was so 'profound' that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the ple...

Re: Muck on the pluck

It's pedal not peddle!

Both are derived from the Latin word for feet.

A pedal is that thing on the end of a crankset that riders push and pull with their feet.

To peddle is to walk from place to place selling things, i.e to peddle drugs. A person performing this function is a pedlar.

Re: Electric peddle assist bicycle exact power rules ??

One year with parole. Riding two up on the footpath for 200 metres wasn't the brightest of ideas. Sounds like they were riding fairly close to the doors of the shops too - I can't imagine an 86 year old leaping out of a shop and across to the far side of the path very quickly. Making space to give ...

And 1 X 13 is well into that territory!

Also the narrower chains do not last as long as the old 8 speeds and usually cost a lot more.

Re: New 13 speed cassette in the pipeline

My hybrid runs a 3 x 6, with linear pull brakes. Cost $400, new. We have linear pull (Shimano XT ) on our tandem. So far I have not had any problems stopping the bike with those brakes. In the wet I just anticipate when I need to brake and brake a bit earlier to dry the rims. No problem at all in t...
