OOPS !

The way the government is going, even those who did fill in the form might not get the tax credit so you might not be at such a big disadvantage :roll:

And now I find that the Fishermen's Mission in Scrabster is to close, an institution I hold close to my heart because of the fry-ups I have there at the end of cycling trips, before getting the ferry.

I feel like part of my life has been stolen from me, and almost as sad as I was when .... when... Woolies clooossssseeeeddddd!

Wah!

Not been a bad week , Picked up a 2000 sid xc fork , hope sport lever and c2 caliper that were just going to go in the bin . The sid has a heavily worn stantion ( not sure why it's just the one ) so will either whip it apart , change the seals and oil and put together a bike around it or offer it up for spares . The brake doesn't look to have had much use and is my preferred lever :D

Today I received from Bankrupt Bikes a set of retro looking forks that will not be as fragile as SIDs. Theyre a wee bit chunky and heavey...ish but they look good and seem to work.

Top Gun 979AD's, alloy with red bits and a canti hanger on the arch NOS, MCU damped but adjustable settings. Will be appearing on a bike eventually. I like low end kit even if no one else does :lol: :roll:
