    actually, quite a few of the downhill riders do. I think Gee atherton wears spd's (or an equivalent).


    It's more gay that you're scared of being clipped in :moa:

    Plus, when commuting mainly on roads SPD's are ace. I hate using flats for commuting. My MTB has flats though, personally I haven't got the balls to hurtle down a muddy hill clipped to my pedals :)

    This is steve peat

    Thats spot on to be fair.

    I've just bought flats and Shimano shoes for my MTB, for that very reason!

    Being clipped in for road use is fine as long as you read the road ahead and can unclip in time. When I use the SPDs on my mountain bike I get scared and I have come off a couple of times too.

    Yeah, i reckon that hurt a lot. lol

    If we're talking cool downhill clips though, this wins hands down every time!!! Slightly unsafe for work commentary, but awesome video.

    I've seen several people fall off their bikes when stopped cause they forget to unclip.
    it really makes me laugh.

    Just had a bath and watched the F1 highlights.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm no Schumacher fan. But I ****ing hate Hamilton, he's just such a moaning, talentless little girl. He couldn't pass Schuey' because he hasn't got the minerals, Button steps up to the plate and smashes him. Grrrrr.

    It's not even fishing, it's just a "do you guys think you need them". I'm intrigued, I know you don't but people ALWAYS bang on about them being absolutely essential.

    Don't look at me! I'm sat nervously in the waiting room of an MoT garage, and only have access to Tapatalk.

    The big guns are in play now!

    It doesn't - we could probably all have fun trying to make, and trying to find gaps in, an exhaustive list of rules; but it'd waste an awful lot of everyone's time, and we hope that not every situation needs to be set in stone.

    To be fair, fun/entertaining are generous after the first few views - I'm not certain about the risk of triggering seizures in those with photosensitive epilepsy (although I don't suppose it could be ruled out), but it certainly got a bit distracting/annoying; so, rather than have a moan I thought I'd have a grin...

    But when this:

    [​IMG]

    ...was replaced with another mad flickering crazy thing, I just flicked some switches :ninja:
    [EDIT: Not a ban though, just closed off some profile options/functions a little - forums all still accessible]

    If you click settings (top of the screen) and Edit Profile (*I think* - if not, general settings or something) on the left, you can change put it back there.

    Cheers :beerchug:

    I thought the fun police turned in to Fun martial law for a minute then and I bout to throw some toys of the pram.
    Ok not my toys of pram but still. they would go flying. :)

    Rob, Thought any more about making the pub less public and getting back to how it was before the fishing trip?
    I feel its lost some of its apeal.
