    What are the protocols after today's mishaps on the TdF?

    Is it the done thing to start a Road Tacks thread here, or should that privilege lie only with the swivel-eyed crazies in Commuting?

    I realise I may have caused some offence with my language in this post.

    I got a puncture on my commute from a roof nail, back when we had the storms last winter.
    Does that count?
    :wacko: :crazy: = swivel-eyed crazy commuter Pat.

    So, interested in ethics as ever, is there a moral difference between tacks evasion and tacks avoidance?

    I think the culprit was Vladimir Karpets, obvious in it.

    Enough of this filth. Impressionable middle-aged men might be reading. :stop:

    That Europcar geezer was a bit tactless, attacking like that. Still, I guess his wheels were intact.

    I changed the inner on my commuter this afternoon, even though it didn't have a puncture. There were no tacks involved, though, it was a sodding big lump of tree which had gone straight through the City Jet and caused a hole too big for the Slime to sort, so it's completely irrelevant here.

    However, "completely irrelevant", ironically, strikes me as the most relevant way to respond. :giggle:

    Close passes by cars and motorbikes, people stepping off the verge into the path of oncoming bicycles, three punctures on one ride, random French people running about in their underwear.

    I have so much in common with Bradley and Cadel...

    ...maybe apart from the underwear bit

    I wonder if Wiggins and Roland have patched it up yet?
