- I love fellting, I do…
..I really do!
Sometimes I’ll swap a bit over, or take it off and put it on again, just for the sake!
Just taken some links out of the chain – I did it because I’ve ditched the big ring, but i doubt it’ll make that much difference, but i wanted to do it so i did!
I know it’ll be the end of me one day, and I’ll decide i prefer my brake hoss in two parts for example, but not much makes me happier than fixing the bike, upgrading parts, polishing and generally playing with the bike.
In fact, sometime i think all the above can bring more joy from the maching than a soggy ride on a dusky day – is this wrong?
The only reason I raise this is because I know of some people who despise ‘fiddling’ with the bike, and for them it’s solely a machine to be ridden.
So, what are your views…?
Are you a persistent tool merchant, or a ride and ignore type?

I like to call myself a “Compulsive Mechanic”
I fookin love spannering, me. I’d build bikes for people for free, I love it so much. I don’t want to work in a bike shop though, because if it was a JOB and I had to do it FAST it’s get boring and I wouldn’t enjoy it. I take great pride in having a good toolkit and a tidy garage.
It’s heaven. A box full of bits, (Instructions optional) a cuppa and some tunes. Bliss.
And then there’s collecting all the bits together beforehand….. Love it!Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
Hang on hang on hang on; ‘Fellting’?
WTF is ‘fellting’? Is it some obscure outlandish practice only found in the West Country?
Ear, DrP; I had a dream about having a huge Tapeworm, then preserving it in a jar of Formaldehyde. Only a couple of hours ago.
If I were to have a huge Tapeworm, which then passed through my system, how would I go about Formaldehying it? What would be the correct procedure, from cleaning/preparation of specimen, to sealing the jar?Posted 9 years ago
