Wise words

"Almost nobody fixes toasters. This is because a modern toaster is nearly impossible to fix, held together with little bendy tabs which break off if you bend them more than twice. The toaster manufacturer naturally expects that you will do the Right Thing - toss that dysfunctional item in the dump and buy a new one! All in all, the working toaster is a perfect symbol for modern utility in general ... glamourous and efficient!"
Norman White.
Strike a chord with any modern bike owners?
