Bessy's handlebars were becoming increasingly unresponsive, with every turn further loosening the precarious connection between the head tube and the front forks. I had taken to slowly leaning my way around corners, relying on the roll of the tyres, rather than actually turning the handlebars properly. The risk that I would have to turn suddenly to avoid something - a turd or oncoming bus, say; both of which are everywhere - was becoming far too large.
