Thanks for the great day out and the great company lads. Boonie asked me to pass on his thanks as well, he had a really good day and said that he felt like one of the usual crew as everyone made him feel welcome.
Col, while it was a bummer that the rear mech went bang, its a glass half full/half empty type thing as at least it introduced you to singlespeed and it joys :D That Raleigh is lovely and would be even lighter without all those mechs and shifters, you showed you dont need it. Feel the singlespeed..........be the singlespeed :wink:
ZZ, I have that seat for you as well, forgot to leave it on the car. Its here so I can send it down for you just drop me your address.

Yes, cleaning the Pugsley was a hard chore today, standing in a sleeting gale with a bucket, dirt ninja spray and then trying to wash as quickly as possible before my hands fell off. I lost feeling in them as soon as I wet it and sprayed the cleaner on. Warmed up and then back out to rinse :lol: Had to be done as mine lives inside :D

Kaiser, myself and Gmac were sunning ourselves by the loch eating snacks and drinking drink blissfully unaware, while ZZ was backtracking.
Someone had to do it :wink:
