What height are you? I will have a cannondale that ZZ is bringing me so you could have that for the day- it's a 17 inch bike if that is any use?


Very kind offer, the Coyote is 16", and the F700 15", both C-to-C. Me, I'm 5'6" from soles of my feet to top of my head.

But I won't take the Coyote apart until I have rebuilt the fork for Cannondale, as I don't want to leave myself bikeless.


I have a 16" GT Zaskar you can have for the day if you find yourself stuck :wink:

It is measuring at 14-15 miles Andy, but if you feel the need you can cut away at several points to ease the distance.
You could easily take a mile or 2 off it or even 5 if you are prepared to wait a while for us to do the top section of the loop - you would cut off to raor lodge and wait for us their or continue down to sort the pub out for us 8)

I'll be with Andy I think. I picked up a chest infection in the states 3 months ago and I'm still not back to 100% yet, I'm still really looking forward to it though. Though I predict some wheezing.
