proper retros or trail park specials ?


My choice is pretty limited :lol:

Would love to use the BotE for the climb up, but the descent would be a bit restrained.

Likewise the Sv needs shoved most of the way to the top, but the coming down will be Suuuuuperrrrrr 8) :wink:

Sv wins I'm afraid :lol:

Ohhh you are the man of mystery mikee, bounce up front for the tress every time would be my advice, has anyone contacted the Dr to see if he fancies a jaunt or is he in frogsville watching the broom brooms? He is one of the macretro clan after all.
