My poor old bike - it is some 24-years of age! - suffered a bit of a trauma this week ... one of the pedals, and associated crank, sheered right off and the thread to the main shaft is completely shot!
Not good :-(
... so, temporarily back on the bus whilst I locate a decent mechanic to give the 'old boy' a complete overhaul - obviously badly needed!
It has to be said that the evening commute, from town centre back home, is now much slower than when I was on two wheels :-((
