So Dave D sent me a text this weekend demonstrating why pre-ride maintenance is highly dangerous!

Personally I prefer the ignorance is bliss approach – but that is mostly because I’m crap at fixing things. It would also possibly explain why I have had more ‘long and lonely walk home’ days than most people.

However, I should note that the cracked spoke hole did NOT stop him actually going for a ride (and an 18 mile 1,300 ft ride at that!) – well done Dave
