The unlockable straps holding the bike to the roof-rack were undone.
The unlockable clamp holding the roof-rack to the roof-bars were undone.
The locked main clamp (bike to rack), rack to roof-bars and roof-bars to car thwarted it.

Said loser in frustration at not being able to steal bike alone or bike with roof-rack. Dented the roof of my car. :angry:

What total fuckwittery! It must be noted that Ashvegas has really gone to the dogs since the chch earthquakes. All sorts of scum have moved down there (to the betterment of Chch, methinks).
That sucks!

2 days into my 8 day cycle tour of Northland, I strain my knee, trying to stand up and pedal with a load ...
Got picked up after 4 days, after I was stubborn enough to ride on to go at least halfway LOL

Hoping to find a way to use a mtb derailleur on my touring bike (for a lower gear), and I find this ... why did Shimano have to make things so difficult!

If you can live with 10speed, a 9 speed shimano mtb rd plays nice with 10 speed road shifters. I'm running this combo on my cx/communter with no issues.

[Edit from red to rd. Sram not included. ]

How many bottles of man flu juice have you expelled?
Have you taken this into account for the race?

Not sure what you mean by man flu juice ... sounds icky!
I can't stop coughing when it gets cold though, which makes it hard to breathe!
