Flat pedals on MTB is the future, I keep my cleats on the road. Thankfully more people are going back to basics (flats). I did have bar ends until some time last year, worked well on extremely long ride but I don't miss them.
I would advise everyone to take a careful look at the managing agent's accounts. This would be particularly true if the managing agent pools all managed complex accounts into one 'Trust' account, as is quite common - and lawful. You will find that in such cases you may well be denied access to bank accounts on the grounds of client confidentiality. A calculated balance may well be struck from input and output figures. Cases of double booking of expenditure (without necessarily actually making the expenditure twice) have been known. Sometimes the fault lies with the Trustees authorising payments to suppliers who are 'friends', and not going through prudent tendering practices, (as with the government all too often!). Authorisation of expenses by the Managing Agent outside the agreed parameters need to be watched for. I have to be careful what I say, as I am into the MA for my own complex, and at a delicate stage. I would be happy to PM anyone having difficulties.
