Unwanted… just like his bike.

BIKE PREP

If youdodecide to leave the old tyres on, don’t think you canget awaywitheleavingabadlytensioned chain or underinflated tyre.

When Ihave picked their brains to the nthedegree I’llgoawayand make anychanges, repairsoralterationsthat theysuggest, in the hope of returning witheabikethat’sworthetop dollar.
