I'll have with me a multitool, a 5/8th's imperial allen key, a spare tube some patches, a pump and my camelback - that's it. I'll eat on route and the bike is ready. Sarcy bassteds :)

I think I'm bringing the Kona full susser, need all the skill compensation I can get riding in the dark! Also still has the DMR tyres fitted which are pretty puncture proof if not that great in mud.

Still no light though :? was hoping it would be here by now.

Remember before you pack the bike up Mr K, to fix, whatever it was that you meant to fix but in the end, did not fix, last time you had the kona out. No being cheeky just concerned as it is bloody dark out there :wink:

As I get closer to the ride and the fact that any period bikes seem to be being reserved for daylight its probably safer if I tend toward caution and bring something with some front bounce. Back into the shed I go to ponder the fleet :roll:
