Hi Ken, do you have flat pedals in your bike? We could swap ours Xizangs and compare how different sizes ride.

I'll be travel straight from work, not sure I have spare tubes or pump, that was just morning decision :D

COOL what a turnout for what is by modern standards quite tame mtb'ing.
Veiws though are brilliant and the climbing can be tough but worth it.

See you all there on what is my local patch, I'll cycle there mainly on B roads and dirt track over a distance of a couple of miles :D

My chainset is a very worn but you should get an idea.

Mikee, I reckon I'll be at yours sometime between 5.30 and 6.00
