Seems the debate of the usefulness grows religious now... :D

Might also come with the area, thus terrain, thus kind of usage of the bike... if you live in the flat, the bike has nowhere to roll and that... ;)

Quite right Tony. Some very neat pictures posted there. I have already put a post on that thread too.
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

BTW, Michael is a friend of mine (was just in the Holler) and he's originally from Canada but spends a lot of time in Switzerland. ;-) Quite a pilot also and used to be on this board in it's original form.

I got one of these from the very helpful Tony last year maybe the year before not sure now, fitted in a few minutes and faultless in operation - soooooooo handy! Well done that man!

One of the best farkles I ever put on mine and Tony's a brilliant bloke to deal with.
Only thing I did different/extra was to slip a wee piece of thin teflon packing between the end of the tensioning screw and the brake reservoir. I thought there was a chance of it wearing/vibrating on it enough to leave a mark. Other than that - utterly brilliant and soooo useful.
