The Mystery of The Day

So I heard a clanking noise when I was wheeling the bike back into the garage and thought it might have been something serious and after about two minutes I located the source of the sound to be coming from inside the handlebars...


Tomorrow I'm going to open it up and see what's inside, anyone can feel free to guess in the meantime. My bet is either on Mayan gold or the philosophers stone.

Something seriously wrong there. You turned your handlebars backwards & forwards but I swear I didn't even see the forks move. Must be a bugger to ride like that? :-)

Pretty easy once you get used to it. All I do is hit the wheel with a big metal stick until it turns the direction I want it to.
