well done on doing the red on a rigid!!!
we were at the 'Tress last Sun and similar conditions, but i found it pretty jarring on the hands etc on my custom built Boardman winter bike with SID's!! it's first proper single track outing, but i think the forks were a little too hard for that kind of terrain, so i'll be letting some air out of them.
As for using good ol' canti's???? that's just madness!! Discs all the way!!
The new top section on Spooky Woods is pretty good now though. However the pie run and the rest of it is just a mess?? it's totally eroded away and with all the rain you're just riding in big ruts all the time. Hope they upgrade some of it soon??
