Hi Gorbs,

Good hearing about your come back to the wonderfull world of mountain bikes.

I live out in Waters Upton just north of Telford and errm yes i think i have seen you around the lanes!!. I have family and friends in High Ercall / Roddington.

Anyway just saying hi and if you need any advice on routes in the area i will gladly help out.

Missmyfat and i used to ride together back in the early days of 91-95 and lost touch and then got reunited through this website. So you see good things can happen.

I am more of a downhill rider now but as the months go by i am wanting to get back to my roots more and more. Before you know it i will be riding a full hardtail again!!

Hey Dave,

I remember making some lights up with Will in his workshop. We used to mount halogen spot lights in a piece of 2" plastic pipe, seal them and wire them via a handle bar mounted toggle switch to a pair of 6volt model batteries that were wired together to make a 12volt, then mounted them in the water botlle cage......

Wow!! they were great coupled with a petzle head torch.... arrgh the good old days eh!!
