Atonal Miserabilist (AFKA TRO)
I had a Tomahawk.

Getting my first 5 speed racer was the crowning joy of my youthful cycling. Think it was a Carlton. Naturally the first upgrade was a pair of cowhorn handlebars.

What I remember most was the fucking thing punctured all the time. My tubes ended up as much patches as the original rubber.

Anyone remember fitting a dynamo? Slowed you down by about 5 mph in order to emit some feeble pale orange light....

My mother, who was, as previously mentioned with reference to Choppers, the authority on all things cycling, decreed that lights were frowned upon by the police because they could fall off or the battery could run out, and dynamos were where it was at, so until I left home all I was allowed was a dynamo

My Chopper had those lights with the strange combo batteries that only fitted bike lights - until they went flat, the plastic cracked and or they got knocked/bounced off!

Back on topic....

Garmin, specifically bl@@dy Garmin Express.
Damn program has to be coaxed into working most days with ANT+ stick, and then tonight it's randomly uploaded everything on my watch so I have to unpick the double entries.

How can a company make such good watches and fail miserbly to produce a decent bit of software?
