I'm popping up to Whinlatter tomorrow for an experimental bimble on the Kona, I want to test her (and me, I hate that fire road climb) before next weeks meet.

Should be up there around 9:30 ish with a riding buddy (who also likes to bimble), if anybody wants to meet up, please send me a PM with your number or for mine.

Cheers,

Nick

The fire road is a cracking climb. Not sure whether I'm riding Dent or Whinlatter tomorrow, will PM number over anyway just in case.

Weather certainly seems better than the downpour at 1am.

You too Matt, and your Father.

My apologies, I think I must have been a little shell shocked by the rigid ride and never offered to get you guys some lunch or a coffee.

Looking forward to next weekend and the possibility of a springy front end.

Cheers.

The carpel tunnel did seem to be setting in, haha. I should have had some sympathy and locked my forks out.

The in-laws had a sunday lunch waiting for me when I get in. Time to brew up next week.

Little bit rooty and rock in some places, but it's far from rough.
