OIF cycle parts and frame guide

Post by martin_tog » Sun Jul 13, 2008 10:59 pm

Can anybody tell me where I can get hold of a copy of "the incomplete guide to OIF unit B25/B50" written by Brad Jones ? and others. I would also like to get a copy for the Wiltshire Branch of the BSAOC.

Many thanks

Martin Bell

Rickard
Gaff - house, commonly used meeting place, haunt as in place where one spends a lot of time and so can usually be found.
Example: Mark Cook's Gaff would be The Old Dairy at Naish House Farm.
I think it relates to Gaffer (Boss) which is an old abreviation of Grandfather.
Then, of course, there is Gaffer tape....

Martin,
Back to the book
Brad Jones gaff is

Well I speak English every day as I am employed by a English company.

Well it´s a Japanese company but I am employed by the European headoffice in UK.

But still lots of words to learn.

Just a short info post - the book 'O.I.F. B25/B50: The Incomplete Guide', is now an updated version which, through new research, contains some amendments and expanded chapters to the previous edition. Brad
