Keith, thank you for the important article 'So You Want To Buy A New Bike This Year?' thoroughly enjoyed reading it albeit distressing at the same time.

Excellent article Keith.

It took me awhile to figure out from the committee minutes what a BB is. Perhaps it's just me, but I thought BBs' were in fact FPs' (forum posts) ?

Yes, interesting article. I recently found a load of old 9 and 10 speed shifters and mechs in my shed - mostly front, no matching rear set speed-wise, actually 6 in total but one of the shifters would be no use without the right brake to hang off. I put the whole lot on ebay Buy-it-now and it sold in about 5 mins :shock:
