Heres the press release Brant has cheekily sent out to the mainstream media.
Internet bike company On-One are employing professional cyclists to
deliver their bikes to customers doors during the petrol crisis.
"We normally use a courier company", said spokesman Brant Richards,
"but now things are getting tight on the fuel front, we’ve had to use
Wayne Randle, John Tanner and Mark Lovatt who ride for our team".
These are no run-of-the-mill riders either – Current National
Champion Tanner is due to leave for the Sydney Olympics on Monday and
team mate Mark Lovatt is the highest ranked UK road rider. Brant
added "We’ve got other riders too, and we’ll be roping in members of
the local cycling club to help if things get busy.
"In spite of the problems that we’ve been put under by the petrol
crisis, we’re of the opinion that petrol tax should be higher. 90% of
journeys are unnecessary, and cars put a huge strain on the
environment,", said Richards
On-One’s Inbred bike was described as the ideal commuting bike by a
magazine recently. It’s main feature is it’s simple single-speed
transmission, and a classic steel frame. The bike retails for £750
