Query: swapping rear wheel and derailleur

Started this discussion. Last reply by RobertL May 4, 2016. 2 Replies

RobertL replied to Ruediger Landmann's discussion Cop insisted on seeing drivers licence
"Interesting. I often ride without my driver's licence. If I'm going on a group ride, I'll only have a credit card and a go card that might be any sort of ID. I wonder what that particular cop would do in that situation?"

"Motor vehicle traffic was particularly heavy this morning. I passed at least a dozen cars backed up waiting to get across the Fraser Street train line bridge in Wooloowin this morning. It really put a smile on my face :)"

"I now have an "emergency" pair of socks and underwear, following a forgetful moment last year.  On the other hand, I did learn that Target in the Myer Centre opens at 7:00am every weekday morning!"
