I only do Retro :) , will be on the usuall 94 Zaskar, been making worrying noises though, kind of a clacking/knocking noise, changed a few bits (rear wheel, pedals etc) still friggin there :x, suspect it may be the bottom bracket, too late now so if it dies it dies.

I cant stand any kind of noise from a bike so i may be a bit sweary tomorrow :oops:

That's a guarantee:wink:

I will only be sat upon my steed from the top of spooky woods back down
I don't do uphill, pushing up is a good chance to shoot the shit and banter and let the fit lads take the cycle climb up :wink:

I'm bringing my Townsend trekking bike so wont be particularly fast on the downhills due to skinnyish tyres. Further i'm cycling down and homeward because i want to not because I have to so I'll be conserving energy. Might join Gary for the push up the hill :roll:
