Had a great few hours on the wicked today, run over a few local trails then over to Dundonald and the always fun smugglers trail

http://www.dundonaldcastle.org.uk/visit ... ing-guide/

Trails were pretty boggy but the forest colours were spectacular and even the demise of my suntour rear wheel (broken spokes) did not spoil my good mood.

Did the Glen Loin loop today. Tarbet to Arrochar then up the landrover tracks and back down a nice bit of single track then back to Tarbet.

15.5 miles with a fair bit of climbing. Weather was great.

That looks great 8)

Took stock of the long stagnant RTS/Hot Rod build earlier, trying to kick start my interest again, going to order an A-Z mount for the rear later, will probably put the hubs and rims in to get built next weekend.

That will just leave me needing a complete drive train (9 speed), tyres, shifters, grips, pedals and brake pads, not a lot then :roll:

Would make sense to strip the (sat around for ages) DH8 for the drive train bits though :?
