Perhaps that was his attempt at 'knight'?

D'oh. Damned homophones. I didn't note it the first time around, so I did a search for knight and it wasn't there. OP wins, he sunk my battleship.

Indeed, however your negativity is counterproductive towards the bigger issue of my clicking tire.

GM C, one thing everyone quickly notices about chess is that you're allowed to choose your own moves.

Who's the fool now?

Giovanni, get a new tyre and tube, replace those on the un-named POS and move on.

Why not? Isn't that where you started, complaining about a bike you bought with a dud tyre?

So buy a new tyre and tube and replace it (or take it to a proper bike shop and pay and extra $5 for them to replace it for you if you don't know how) and the problem is solved. If you don't know how to change the tube and tyre You Tube will show you.

My computer doesn't play video.

Once i get my camera working (which I bought at the same place) I'll upload my problem as the tire and tube have been changed now and the clicking is still there.

Sounds like mixed progress, Giovanni ... two steps forward, one sideways?

Hey Stronzo when you buy stuff from someone who is patently a scoundrel and thief, why do you expect any
of it to work ? If you didn't extract an undertaking from the pawn shop that your computer would upload problems,
why would you expect it could do that ?

I don't mean to be disbelieving, but rather I've never seen a computer that could upload problems. However I'm hoping
you have found one. If you can demonstrate it uploading your problem, I'd like to give it a go with uploading my problems (especially the 17 year old unemployed dope-smoking lay-about son), as it might be a really good way
to get rid of problems.

Would you consider selling it and if so, what's it worth ?

Dear sir,

Computer is an internet browser issue - Computer purchased elsewhere
Camera issue - connectivity with the computer - software not compatible it appears.

Bike CLICKY :(

If the son issue is literal, i suggest a smack around the jaw - upload result.

When I buy something that doesn't do what it's meant to I return it for a refund.

Any sale is a contract between two parties...you fulfilled your part by paying, his part of the contract is to provide a bike that works properly, which it doesn't!

A retailer once refused me. I walked around his shop picking things to the value of my sale and walked out. 5 mins later I had my refund!

Lighten up guys. I think the poster is really struggling with his English, and is possibly using a translator (google, smartphone app etc) to communicate. Might also explain how he was "had" by the retailers.

Maybe....So I'm giving him the benefit of the 'collective doubt' by suggesting he go back and see the retailer.

It's a windup, ILMB, a bit laboured now, but at least with some wit! :smile:

Hey Stronzo, you musta come from Sicily. Here in Australia, most of us understand that violence begets
violence and is not an effective remedy for any problem. And besides, if you were a little older, you'd
realise that young people grow and older folk shrink, so that some time in their late teens, sons get to
be bigger than their dads and quite capable of returning any smack in the jaw with interest added.
Such situations can end in only one really bad place.

While you were quick to suggest vioilence, I'm puzzled why you dont take your own medicine and go give
the pawn-broker an upper cut.

More than that, I am dissappointed that you have deflected my question about uploading your problem, as I was hopeful it was a non-violent remedy for problems.
