Yes I am. Starting from Bollington though so it cuts about 4 miles off the journey each way.

Just fitted these, last time I rode them on tarmac I thought the rear triangle was breaking away - should make the commute entertaining! :lol:

They worked well for you last time, I'm going to bring the '88 again, there's still a ride left if the front pads and the tryes are the best I have for soft white stuff.

They did, it was just the rider that was lacking that day :oops: At the start anyway, I did warm up a bit (sic).

Looks fairly clear out of my window, just a dusting of white from yesterday, reckon it might be great riding conditions as unlikely as that seemed! 8)

Ooo, if anyone has any blue brake cable outer I'm short about 18 inches, would be very grateful in the very unlikely case it's a match... Mine is Clakes from about '90, I'll bring an offcut for comparison! :lol:

Thanks 8)
