On my way home from a ride yesterday I stopped in a Blockbuster to pick up a DVD as Saturday night tele seems to have become landlords salvation night again ( picked up Grand Torino, not a bad film actually ).
Chained to the bike stands outside was a shonky , but clean MTB. A quick glance revealed the amazing mongtards at Halfrauds had assembled the bike and tested it, as per the repetetive adverts on 'tele, with the front forks the wrong way round! Stunning in its stupidity I know and how it must have ridden who knows. I march in to Blockbuster in my usual quiet voice " Whose is that death trap mountain bike chained up outside with the front forks on backwards?" . A bloke about 30 poked his round from behind the PS3 games and claimed ownership. He bought it last week from Halfrauds and thought it didn't ride very well, but what would he know, he's a bloke ?
I had my camalbak and therefore tools , so I turned the forks round and gave it a quick eye over. The V brakes were rubbbing on one side , and he had the seat waaaaaaay low, apart from that the rest was in order .
Unbelievable, but then they did put the brake levers on my nephews bikes pointing at the sky, my sister couldn't understand why thye never used the brakes, but used the soles of their shoes to stop.
Shouting at stupid people doesnt make them understand what they fail to grasp in the fisrt place.
