    Guess what I got?

    Don't know about the rest of you but I am in Maintenance mood right now. End of the Summer- and I am just preparing to get back to "Keeping" in trim for the rest of the year. High winds in the wrong direction are going to be the Norm for weekend rides and I dare say there will be a bit of rain and cold to go with it.

    So it is down to preparing me and the bike for winter right now. Checking the Steel nuts and bolts for rust and changing the Cables over to stainless steel from what is fitted. Have to change the brake pads shortly to something that will work in Floods but they can wait a few weeks.

    So here I am working on the bike and the Postman arrives. Not really as it was waiting for me when I got home. My sponsor has sent me a new product to try out. I am not going to tell you what it is as I have to do a bit of preparation and adaptation to use it properly So it is up to you lot to guess what it is.

    Attached is a pic of me fitting it and NO- It is not a Monks habit to go with my haircut. That was a shock as I never realised I had lost that much hair. I can assure you that it is something you would give the kids bikes away for but just to give you a clue- A pic of my dessert this evening- and it was apple and Rhubarb.

    power tap.

    Maybe the new Polar one that goes on the chain?

    With that desert, you could measure the watts needed to burn it off.

    Just to give you a better clue- This will not actually improve my riding but will make me smarter and be an inducement to improve energy.

    A new mixture of viagra to carry in the green water bottle?

    Oh, can't be that, results of viagra seem to have a dumbing effect on men.

    Maybe a ginseng supplement that goes in the green water bottle?

    One of the women will be in here shortly to suggest it was a sex change operation.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    stapfam,
    The cream must be rising to the top. Imagine my astonishment at checking the forums today and seeing what you had recently received! We must be running the same sponsor as I just got mine the other day. We are running a little behind Skipper however, I know for a fact that he got his a couple of months ago and he kicks a-- on the hills now! I was seriously thinking about wandering over to his place and cobbing the bloody thing but he keeps it locked up. Go figure-whatever happened to trust. I also know that we were the first to get them in the US-I suppose that its another asian innovation. I hope yours helps as much as mine has.(he says having all ready gone on a test ride)

    If someone was going to send me something to help me go up hills faster, it had better be an electric hub motor with a battery pack.
