  1. Thorn in my side

    Heard Eurythimcs' "Thorn in my side" earlier today and it's being going round my head all day. Just watched the vid on youtube (never seen it before) and have been going from one vid to the next ever since. Class music is class music. :thumbup: Annie Lennox has THE most amazing voice ever...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    I've said it before, never a ride on Nessie that doesn't turn into an adventure one way or another :color:.

  5. Rosedale Rideouts

    Past National Meets
    This has been partially covered in another thread but warrants its own dedicated section. If others planning a rideout could add their suggested routes. I reckon two or three road routes & maybe an off road ride would keep numbers managable. Please keep banter & unnecessary posts to a minimum...
  6. Correct inner tube valve nut arrangement?

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Just changed the front tube after picking up a massive thorn on the Fosse way. Starting from the base of the new tube it came with a conical washer thingy then two nuts and a dust cap. I wasn't sure if the conical washer went inside the rim alone, with one nut or with both nuts on the outside...
