Don't worry too much, aslong as your works and is in good condition you won't be left behind.

It's all about the scenery, good company and of course bike chats.

I'm recovering from a few injuries myself but tagging along for this one ;)

It'll be great to see you again Andy.
The bike looks great by the way. I'm not usually a fan of those coloured sidewall Panaracer Fires but, along with the matching grips and saddle on that one, I reckon it looks really nice.

Good work on the headtube. Fingers crossed eh?

I've seen Andy's welding jobs and they're usually over the top, it'll last.

I'll be joining too, think the Kona might get an outing, it has only 7 cogs, thumb shifters, skinwall tyres, and flat pedals which are modern but may get changed as I'm used to spuds and may die with flashbacks of BMX/pedal/shin incidents of old.


Big Pics ahoy.......
