been looking for a pi**ed off smiley :( - my ex has decided to play silly bugg*ers with access dates for the bairns so unfortunately now don't have a free day on saturday - Buzz junior is well hacked off too - I'll just have to have a look at the meet calendar and try to plan ahead again.

Chaps - looks like I'll be bringing the Gate

The Manitou is sitting unbuilt but not unloved but I think it might be too much of an ask to get it up and running before Saturday .....

If I feel brave and fit I might even bike it along to GT as 5 miles shouldnt kill me....

The Bullitt - Now I could have brought it but it's a pig to climb due to teh 2.7 Super Sticky Tyres and the brakes are shot

Well - let me rephrase that, it's sat for so long that the seals have gone so unless anybody has a spare #6 front hope for a 200 or 205 disk and a #3 rear for 165 just laying around then it'll have to be the gate

I should drag my ass out and build the Manitou but I dread to propogate the crack any further beforeI can get a press collar on it...

Don't ride it until it is fixed - regret can gnaw away for a long time, and little forest creatures can gnaw away at your broken face while you lie in the dirt with the broken frame under you.

Ken - you take the sentiments from the last time a Manitou product gave way whilst I was riding it and vocalise (err type) in a way shakespear himself would have been proud to call his own....
