    White flannels that Ikea sell for 19p each (in the textiles section). Just bought 80 and they are good for cleaning and polishing duties.

  3. Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites

    The cheap & nasty way. :mrgreen: * 1 "ludde" Ikea sheep. Baaa! :-) * 2 foam kneepads from the hardware store. * 1 cargo net * No shame. ;-) Those knee pads are pretty comfy if a bit narrow, and the bike gets higher this way which I don't mind. Ofcourse, it looks utterly rubbish, but...
