The only retro mtb I've got at the moment is a '97 Cannondale F700.
My Kona is in bits and I gave the other 'dale back to it's owner.

Look forward to seeing you and the Dale :wink:

somthing with a bit of grip might be a good option given the fair bit of rain we have had- it does not tend to get to gloopy but the roots can be slippery.

Na, was maybe going to take both (Clockwork and Zaskar) in case i take one and end up wishing i'd brought the other, Zaskar was good at Drum but gears were pi55ing me off, changed loads of bits in the last few weeks, fettled them to death but still not 100% :x, just got decent tyres for it too.

The Clockwork is working 100% though and i was wanting to try out (show off) my new Orange Flite :) , had a black Flite on it but pretty sure the bike will be faster, lighter, and better handling with the Orange one.

yeah, clockworks look great with an orange flite and will def slice thru the air easier due to the neutrino waves caused by the "orangness" of the saddle.
