€850 derailleur or 2 cent cable tie


So I’m sitting in the kitchenette at work having lunch with the office manager flicking through an old copy of Cycling weekly when … F@$^ING HELL! The contents of my mouth exploded across the table. The stain from that pumpkin soup will never come off of that wall.

I spent €850 on a brand new derailleur plus €300 on bike rental to fix a known fault that I could have remedied with a 2 cent cable tie. I am annoyed with Shimano.

I will write. Watch this space
