Dodgy MoTs and eBay

Nathan Steele, 24 June 2010 14:52

I've been bike mad for twenty odd years and always worked on my own bikes. I've been buying cheaper, older bikes and giving them full rebuilds.

If you've had an accident which you believe was caused by a badly-surfaced road, it's worth knowing that there is a code of practice that governs their inspection.

My crime, I had filtered past a line of parked cars on my left and standing traffic on my right.
