Thanks so much you are very thoughtful! :-)

Looking forward to hearing about your new Brommie and please tell you when you reach the Fibonacci heart-rate sequence and single speed state of nirvana. We'll dedicate that one to Snafu21


PS The Foldernitis virus you have contracted is a symbiote and it will slow down your ageing process. The craving and lust factor may be somewhat alleviated by the Brompton for now. Mine was for a about a year and then I saw the Pacific Reach IF mode and Dahon Jetstream EX 2010!

Happy Birthday!

As one of the older members of this Forum, I am happy to reach the next birthday - no matter how large the number might be. Hopefully, you are not quite to that portion of the road just yet.

I'm not, but those 24 yr olds on my hammerfest rides are starting to inflict some real pain especially in the sprints and breakaways........ time for some wily, (dirty), tactics!!

Old age and treachery will ALWAYS overcome youthful enthusiasm...

Wow! 45 years old! Incredible.

I think once you hit middle age, the fear of riding a small wheel bicycle goes away. Have a Happy.

I get teased about riding a small wheel bike sometimes.(clown bike etc.) The good part about being older is that once you get to a certain age one doesnt give a rip what others think anymore.
Happy b-day mulleady.

Happy b-day mulleady.
Heh heh that's when you start wearing knicks that are two shades too large, tops that are three shades too small and long cable ties on the helmet to keep magpies away.

Cheers!
