On My Doorstep

"Derailleur, you and me on Castle Hill.

Caesar came from Rome,
picnicked here then pissed off home.

Just received the new album from The Scaremongers (Simon Armitage's band) called Born in a Barn.

One of the tracks is called "Derailleur". Surely a must for all cyclists! Is it the only song about the bicycle gearing system?

To be contentious, I've never been keen on these dangly gears. Much too fiddly for me. I am pleased to see that hub gears are making a comeback even for enthusiasts.
