New/old bike. Guy I bought it from had it custom built, rode it a few times and then had to give up due to health so it had been sitting unused for 10 years or so. All in near new condition, made of Columbus Ultrafoco steel, Campagnolo Centaur 10 speed groupset with some nice bits - titanium Record hubs/Mavic Open Pro with ti/steel Record cassette, full carbon Look HSC-2 forks, Use carbon Alien seatpost. Less than 9kg not bad for steel. OK, the paintjob aint for everyone…

had a wee low speed off yesterday, raised bit of iron works between the drop kerb and road,

Fibula broken in 2 places, Tibia broken, waiting for swelling to go down before surgery, said it might not happen before the weekend, looks to be ligament damage as well, minimum 6 weeks in a cast, screws, plates, possible need to have an additional screw added to keep it all together which they will remove after 8 weeks should the need arise, bollocks Sad

Anyone tried to get compensation after having an accident caused by a pothole?

Was out with my girlfriend yesterday and she's broken her collar bone after hitting a pothole and going arse over tit.

I'm not the type of person to cry about stuff like this but she's locumming at the moment so will be out 3 grand as she can't work.

Gutted for all the injured people on here at the moment - hope you heal up ok Jesus. At least the walking on water skills should come in handy for the hydrotherapy rehab…

I’ve decided to give up BMX this year (riding seriously anyway) after 15 years because of injuries.

Any Brompton riders on here? Just joined the fold with a S2L Ti in Raw Lacquer - so much fun to ride! Been inspired by some of the weight weenie builds I’ve seen so going to try and get it down to around 8.5/9kg:

Already ordered:
ESI Racers Edge grips
J&L ti riser bars
Brompification ti hinge clamp set
Fizik Arione R1 braided carbon rail saddle
Hylix carbon seatpost (though may switch this for a Brompification ti one)
Brompification ti quick release seat clamp and rear frame clip
Brompification magnesium platform pedals w/ ti spindles
Brompification ti bolt set and brake bolt set
Ti Parts Workshop alu easy wheels w/ ti bolts
NOV alu chain tensioner

Getting next payday:
Chris King headset
Campagnolo Centaur carbon cranks
New wheels (Phil Wood hubs/Velocity AeroHeat rims/Sapim CX-Ray spokes)

Can’t wait till it starts to look a bit more like some of these:

^ They look awesome, never even considered that Bromptons could look semi decent as I only ever see them used by office workers on trains
