I'm thinking if DaveDH takes you up, I could offer big eck a lift and we'd have one more for the ride (assuming he's not working on the Saturday).

Well, it will build up into a really light bike... Surely you could catch us up?

Bringing the Rockhopper - Almost excited about my big chunky 2.3 front tyre now.

I think I'll bring along some normal pedals and swap out the SPDs depending on conditions - I hate how easily they get all blocked up and useless with compacted snow/ice.

I don't really do light builds, even my Xizang weighs almost 25lb - I like to be able to hit trees with confidence :)

Might try your wheel on my bike if that is ok, see if it fits, I like the idea of fat rubber again.
