Following the success of the West Midlands scrapheap challenge, does anyone fancy the same thing at Llandegla. I fancy overtaking a carbon racer on a £25 piece of steel. :twisted:

This could be a right laugh, I'd have a bash ait no danger. Considering I did it on a £60 Halfords Trax full susser I reckon it can't be too hard on some old clunker with no suspension at all.

Sorry to be a misery, but with this falling between Mayhem and the Manc-Chester ride (not to mention a week of 12hour night shifts :cry: ) there's no way I'll be able to build/scavenge anything in time :( No room here for it anyway! Built three bikes this week for Mayhem as it is :lol:

The budgetest build in the rack is a ss, so not sure I'll cope with that either :? I did only pay £35 ddelivered for the DynaTech so I'll probably bring that and we'll have to try and ignore that I've changed every part on it! :oops: :lol:
