Oh right, I feel a bit thick now :lol:

You do have to ride it though so it would need to be a bit bigger than I imagine such toys are :wink:

When is this event?

I have 2 Raleigh shoppers in various states of disrepair and am going to collect another 3 this afternoon - if anyone wants to build something out of this lot for the race you are more than welcome. I am in the west end of Glasgow.

Oh and I want to do this one on my Skull Skates Cruiser but I don't really want to have to switch the brakes from Vee to Canti. Are Vee brakes against the rules?

I would keep 2 on and pretend not to use one. Can I be the first to ask for a shot?

Sorry - but the lead I had on some old Raleigh Shoppers was a dud - came home empty handed - I still have enough bits to build one though.

As for the Skull Skates - its set up with a rear V brake only - so I guess its eligible. Descending will be hairy though!
