Anyone who's coming looking for any bits at the moment? I've still got some stuff on my sale list - the wee Merlin Frame, 170mm travel Manitou Shermans (1.5" steerer), a couple of wheels, maybe some other bits and pieces. Can bring stuff along if anyone's interested?

Bah, the 3 high gears on the rockhopper are worn and a bit 'skippy'... not a surprise given that its been a commuter most of its life. Looks like it'll be 3x3 tomorrow and a new freewheel later...

Hi Guys
I'm just about to leave to head south. Its been a lovely day up here but snow is forecast.
I am staying at hopeman at a mates. ( I know, I know, I asure you he's real and not imaginary :wink: )
He's going to join us tomorrow but will be on a modern hardtail. I told him nobody would bother as we generally ride what we want, he's a good guy and will fit in with the macretro clan nae bother.
Sorry to hear so many being ill and not being able to make it, get well soon guys and hopefully catch up with you soon.

Jamie

Looks like your weather is going to be pretty decent. No wind. If I wasn't chock full of flu I would come close to making this one as I have visits to make down that way! Have a good one!

just finished work, now for another couple of hours pondering the mysteries of cantilever set up, a beer, bed and of I go. Looking forward to it, shame for the few withdrawals, had been looking forward to seeing the bravado.
