Top Cap! The most Effectual! Top Cap!

KapzFP

In a Derek Nimmo sort of way, a funny thing happened at GA towers last week.

In conversation with @BicycleSeb he mentioned that many a cyclist have more than one bike, obviously we were incredulous, before he went on to explain that some of them may even have a newfangled system for holding a chap’s forks on called a “Headset” by this time we were sat down with a large brandy muttering that it could not possibly be so.

Seeing the angst scored in the lines of my brow he went on to pour oil over my troubled waters and explained that whilst he could not make everything well at the wave of his wand, he had been having a little play with his pencils and produced a little aide memoire that would help those on even the most fashionable of bikes remember they not only have a proper bike but are a member of one of the most respectable cycling clubs in the country.

Sold on the idea, we agreed to sub-contract the finer details to Mrs Adam, before @BicycleSeb approached Kapz and hammered out the sort of deal for the GA that Mrs May can only dream of.

If you should wish to adorn “the other bike” with a plaque of  style and taste  then those nice people at Kapz will be more than happy to oblige.
