I needed two new quick release seat clamps in different sizes - one for the KH24 and one for the Nimbus 36. I couldn’t find my gauge to measure the size so I took them off and took themwith me into the local bike shop.

Nice young chap in the shop looks up from what he’s doing and asks, “Can I help you?”

I hold the two seat clamps a suitable distance apart and ask, “Have you got a replacement tandem to fit these?”

He did quite an impressive double take before he realised I was joking.

And then I’m sure he had no trouble believing they were for two unicycles, right? :wink:
