Robert Evans, 46, had a really bad day recently, Will and Guy have
learned. Read this short and hilarious [but not for him] account of his day.
Firstly, Mr Evans, from Boulder, Colorado, USA, was knocked down by a car
in a hit-and-run incident and was taken to hospital for his injuries, but
was released later that night only slightly hurt. Then, as he was

the Sublime to the Outrageous - Swarovski Crystal Bicycle
This is probably world's most expensive bicycle at just over £60,000,

Edition; each of the ten produced is hand-built and gold-plated with

leather grips and a Brooks leather saddle provide finishing touches to the
bike, with each limited edition number embossed with gold leaf and set into
a leather badge onto the bike's head tube. The business, Scandinavian design

expertly faceted and polished to produce the finest quality crystals
available. The reason for their popularity is that they sparkle and shine
