Don't worry mate, we are still around and getting a few rides in :)
I have been quiet for a while as after writing off my car I had a few weeks of commuting solely by LHTrucker and then I had my hard drive die on my computer which gave me a good excuse to not be online so much. Spent a week or so with the family in Tenerife, soaking up the good life to then return to the glorious weather that is Scotland! Brian was up the a couple of weekends ago and we got in a few miles on one of the good days with some sun, though still bloody cold.
We spent a nice Saturday putting in a few miles on some quiet roads trying to dodge the freezing headwinds. Ended up out at 'Groats for some warm lunch getting back just before dark. Was good to catch up with Brian.
Most likely would have been down for a ride this weekend with Brian but my car failed it's MOT this week and the parts won't be in until Tuesday. Nothing major just a couple of tiny things but still a pain. That's life and always could be worse, could have been a bike off the road ;)

Question for the Road Fags :mrgreen:

Which model of br/ifter levers did Shimano first introduce that had both the brake & gear cables running along the bars (droops) and not across the gap between the hoods, 9 speed & canti brakes compatible BTW.

"Droops"?? You should ask your Doc to change your meds Rob :lol:

No idea, I'm not that much of a Fag, sorry to disappoint you :mrgreen:

Does it need to be period spec? 9-speed would have started with Dura Ace I would imagine.
