- What's your favourite word/phrase STW has taught you…?
“roll it tightly and grease it lightly”
I think it was in a ‘sold my car and now it’s broken’ thread. I try to use the expression daily!

Someone else coined “TWATOS” = There Was A Thread On Singletrackworld it was a regular conversation starter between me and my ex.
I don’t use the acronym, but “there was a thread…” comes out of my mouth enough for my wife to make snoring sounds when I say it!Posted 5 years agoJonEdwardsMember
Byway Bongo is my favourite variation on the hedgeporn theme.
Surprised we’ve not had “owned with bombers” yet, or anything shoe/wee orientated.
Strange how a cycling forum has made me realise some people actually enjoy driving!
Strange how many people don’t realise that driving and riding bikes are enjoyable for many of the same reasons!Posted 5 years ago

Hmmm “gnarpoon” seem to have past me by.. where/why did that originate?
From the Urban DictionaryPosted 5 years ago
to do something most excellent
ie: to shoot a task with a Gnarpoon
“Did you see that wallride to 360 out he just threw?” “Yeah, he’s been shooting up this place with his GNARPOON all day long…”NorthwindSubscriber
I seem to have got credit for gnarpoon, but I totally stole it. Not sure from where, possibly Mark Downie. Now if gnarwhal catches on- ie, what you hunt with your gnarpoon- that is 100% mine. Lots of good gnar words- I was worried when I took my Hemlock to Antur Stiniog that I might get arrested at the border for smuggling gnar cotics.
Til recently, I didn’t realise just how dripping with sarcasm “artisan” can be. Not often I miss an opportunity for sarcasm.Posted 5 years agorazorrazooMember
Rhythm Pamphlet reminds me of this episode of Bottom;
Richie: You may hate me, Eddie..
Eddie: Yes, I do.
Richie: ..but you can’t live without me, can you? I mean, off you go, gallivanting around the countryside, squandering all our money on rhythm magazines, and then you come swanning in here and expect to have your dinner on the table. And I don’t know why I do it, but I’ve managed to throw together a slap-up dinner for two for no money at all. All the ingredients in tonight’s main meal have either been grown, found or foraged.
Eddie: Oh dear.
Richie: So hey! Hey. Hey. Eddie… I forgive you. Come and have your din-dins.Posted 5 years ago
