    by a school kid "how much did those pedals cost, Mister?". I thought he was a fellow cyclist and recognised them, but when I told him how much and he asked why they were so small I realised otherwise. :smile:

    He then asked me why I didn't fall off every time I stopped when I explained the clipless aspect of them!

    That would have been a very cold response indeed.

    Problem is, being of a suspicious nature. Whenever someone asks 'How much?' I feel they have at least half an eye on resale value!

    Maybe it was someone on here having a joke with you. Maybe you have a stalker.

    Thats very nice of you Posty !

    Once whilst sitting on 'the bike' outside my bro-in-laws talking 1 sat pm prior to 'getting off' (going/leaving - translation for you non-liverpool speakers) a lad of not great repute asked how much etc...so i gave him a VERY concise answer to which the answer was almost comical "oh..." as he just didnt think I was to give him that kind of answer - as i expanded on the bits Ive put on it etc...funny in a way though I wasnt expecting him to soo reactionary but more negative than he did retort !
