Podcast: Getting old, out of warranty?

by 5

In this week’s podcast we eventually manage to get Old Man Charlie attached to the interwobble and into the virtual studio in order to chat with Hannah and Mark. Technology gets trickier the older you get… Skateboard tricks just hurt more. When is a warranty claim not a warranty claim, what does a bus shelter have to do with voiding a warranty, and why should you resist the purchase of an extra long shoe horn?

Somehow, all of this will make sense, more or less, once you tune in to the podcast.

Unexpected consequences of ageing

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    @MrOvershoot The getting old bit finishes the podcast.
    Mark & Charlie claiming to be old at 50/51 made us snort. At 60 I can feel the approach of Janus at 50 not at all.

    On the tech front my access to the ad-free podcast whilst logged in had me listen to the first 3 minutes 3 times. (The first repeat may have been due to it pausing when I fiddled with tabs and windows in the browser, it must be my age). 😉

    Odd that none of you seem to know where Greystone actually is.

    And as for 50 year old men claiming to be old…

    Just listened to the podcast, as the poster of the thread mentioned about growing old – I’m 62 and 2/3. Some of the posters appear to be throwing in the towel far too early!

    Old! I am 69 and don’t feel the need to buy a ebike just yet. I was still racing in my 50s!
