Hello everyone went out for a ride with Mark my son on the tandem trike today and met up with some cycling mates for a lunchtime beer (Top Totty wonderful). Anyway the conversation went this way what do you think have been the best cycling innovations which have made a real difference to you. Well here is my two-twopenn'orth for what its worth. Quick release wheels, quick release brakes, Suntour derailleurs ease of changing and you can get the mech off without unriveting the chain and finally Grab-On foam for the bars. Whats yours?

Thats all for now. Keep those wheels spinning, in your memories if not still on the road. Be lucky Mick Butler Huntingdon UK.
