I tend to run the seat tube about 15mm higher than the "maximum" mark (I'm
5'11").

To date I've mostly used it on those days that I have to make a blood
donation but can't afford the time to ride to/from work as well(the
hospital is about 2km away, and at present has serious car parking
problems).

I tried putting the seat up beyond the max mark but it was unstable to
put it mildly.

What? They make pensioners pay for bus fares in Sydney? *******s!
In Perth, where I am a pensioner, all bus and rail journeys initiated
between 9am and 3pm on work days are free, as is all public transport on
weekends and public holidays. And you don't even need to be a pensioner.
Just over 600 and working less than 20 hours a week.


I knew you were old Theo but WTF?? : )

At 74, I have a feeling I might be dead long before I qualify. That must
be the fine print I can't see any more!
