Naw, I'm giving myself the month of October off - see if my shoulder gets better.

Hmm, if it suits you, I can return the Allez then as well?

Something like those on a light, rigid, 1x7 MTB? It's not like the rider's going to be competitive anyway!

Curiously thanks to cheaper Raleigh racers being built to take guards I can fit 32mm wide CX tyres into a modernish racer I have..............oh dear, what am I doing, this could hurt :roll:

Those would be smashin. If you can fit a reasonable sized ring up front I don't reckon you'd suffer too much.

Dam you Kaiser !

Couldn't stop myself, just bought some skinny old school ATB tyres that would make a CX mtb conversion on the cards.

Might see you at Plean, you can wave as you lap me, again and again and again and......................
