What next - electronic stability, traction control, tyre pressure sensors, cruise control... bring back the Sturmey Archer 3 speed gear. "The three speed gear is a power for the hills".

The Chicken is a noble beast
but the cow is much forlorner
it stands out in every weather
with a leg in every corner !!

The horse Is a noble beast
From the mustangs of the west
To the stallions of the east
But the horse has a distant cousin
It lives I do not know where
But its message of racial harmony
Is one that we all can share
Hats off to the Zebras
They are black and white...

"Electric Shifters" - sounds like a ropey 80s breakdance troupe that Don may have fronted
shell suits, hand-spins and highly polished rolls of Lino, you just don't see that kind of class act anymore....

go on! I bet you thought you were the sheee-it when you were in full flow, head spins & no-handed windmills? we should get you drunk in Palmers some thursday and polish the floor....
what was your tag Oz? every good breaker had a tag, bet you were called Zip-Zap or Bionic-Bop or something deadly....

No way, way to cool for a tag but our "crew" did have a name, cant remember it now.....at least I wouldn't put it up here in anyways....I get enough abuse as it is!
