Picture the scene....
Man buys Shiney New Things.
Takes a while to strip old steed bike and put together the Shiney New One.
A window of opportunity opens to make final tweaks & go ride, for an hour, whilst the sun is out.
Puts riding gear on.
Gets bike out. Applies help-tape.
Last job - adjust brakes.
Rear - fine.
Front - needs a tweak.
Test - it spins, freely.
Man goes to 'nip-up' the nuts and go ride
Cup and cone washer collapses.
Man not happy....
Oh, well..... passing close to Merlin tomorrow - will ring and see if they have spares...
