Sorry to hear of the rear axle woes Si, did that myself once on a tourer :shock: :lol:
Weird how it bust in the centre not near the ends and again only the QR held it together :roll:

The way you ride I'm surprised more damage does not occur more often but then Thrunton is a wee bit extreme. The most crashes I've ever suffered on on ride were at Thrunton and during daylight, not in the dark like you favour :lol:

Wrote a list of bits I still need for my current build; felt daunted. Made my current employer £8750 of which I will see 0 as I am leaving next week for pastures new. Went to the pub for Tapas Wednesday (a bunch of old boys bringing finger food to the pub for all to enjoy) felt better. Finally advertised Neighbour's Cindercone that I'd been promising to do since before Christmas.
