Quick pic after a blap the other day. Super happy how shes set up. Just looking for some new chain rings and i think i'm done? Still not got round to weighing but shes no weight weenie. I've plumped for tough XC wheels and by comparison the Thomson kit is a wee bit heavy. Still super light though :D

Dude really sorry to hear about the mare youve had with your Litespeed.
I've been out to play today. Last time i did this route i swore i'd not do it again. It was the middle of summer and the bridelway route i use had been churned up by horses and dried hard. A really horrid ride. This time out though no complaints. Think the cables have stretched a bit but other wise spot on! Oh had the post aa wee bit to high for the only bit of downhillyness in Lincoln :shock: :o

Oh check out the posh bit of the ride and the random swan!
