HI Guys, so i'm going to be running VLM this year and a friend of mine has put together an incredible offer on a bike fit (road or TT) or a mechanics course....teaching you how to look after and service your own bike.

a BIke fit is the single most important thing i've ever spent money on as far as triathlon is concerned and Mike at bridgetown is the best in the business.

and if you have a decent bike you should know how to look after it...and the mechanics course is a revelation.

All of these are worth the money if your paying full price but at these prices (bearing in mind what mike is giving to my charity) they are an amazing opportunity.

Bridgetown cycles is based in tamworth just off j12 of the M6 so they are in the middle of the country and well worth the effort. any questions or comments either PM me or post on here....vouchers can be booked at http://www.btownbikes.com/

my charity page is http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/AndybVLM

Andy, it is actually spam. I got a wrap over the knuckles for trying to sell on some sports nutrition products I won.

Doesn't mean it's not fab, but it is breaking the rules.

Let's see how the spam wombles deal with this one

As well you know, the spam wombles get rid of all the shite that crops up with regards 'watch the NY Cowboys' posts
They do not get rid of random/or not sellers or posts or pass judgement in that particular remit

Andy, to help ... there is somewhere a 'sponsor me' thread with regards VLM or FLM as it prob was then
This would be appropriate on that thread I would think?

Meldy, I have no idea what your remit is. What have you been asked to remove?

it was explained at the beginning.we tackle the obvious spamming from abroad.escorts , handbags, football games..............we do not  deal with any posts where people ask to sell tickets or other  items or things like this.....If you don't like homegrown spam then report it in the normal way......

if you read the threads you posted on instead of skimming through you would have read the answer to your question a number of times............

Fair enough, and nothing to do with you guys, but seems a really flakey policy.

*like*

I remember when Katie took over we were promised more interaction, it hasn't happened. I think we were spoiled with Dan, or I'm just old fashioned!

We all know that there has been a mass exodus, nothing important cos it's just a forum...

But how do we (they) get people back, or is it that the old timers just got bored or pissed off and left?

And if you could be more articulate rather than making posts that are unreadable, we could move forward.

what i want to know is why is there a 60 quid price difference ( on the normal price) between a road and tt bike fit? 

someone enlighten me

There are plenty of people around, plenty of new people with the same questions and aspirations and some with new ones, there are old timers still around ...

Most of us here want the same for this community/forum/computer screen whatever it is, we need to go with the 'evolution' rather than fight it, look forwards and not backwards

Thats the best my foggy head can do at the moment

DK - its because people who buy TT bikes are bigger mugs than those with just road bikes

i didnt want to say it

The place that built my TT bike spent 3 hours measuring me before they built it and fitting it to me after it was built ..... I've never really understood the paying for fitting after you have bought it
