sir thomas blanchard :( here, thought i'd start a slot for myself as i often don't quite know where to post things, :|

I'll kick off with an old photo I found of my bike at lyme regis, the red one next to that huge jap/american style thingy.

reminds me of happier days when it was warm and daylight lasted more than a few hours

I've not been to Lyme Regis for years. We used to holiday there when I was a kid.

well that was two years ago and it was pretty crowded, seems like the place has been 'discovered' - pretty place and nice beach.

yes but you can lean three wheels, seems to miss the point of having a bike.

They're good for disabled people who maybe want that wind-in-the-helmet fun but can no longer ride on two wheels.
A lady I know has managed to stay riding that way, despite losing a lower leg in a previous two-wheeled wreck.....I give her massive props for that.

What's a combo?? Is that shorthand for a combover, because I'm well ahead of you on that front.

And back.

And sides.
