Swear that Dyna actually glows :shock:
Maybe that's what cleared the freezing fog - I've never seen those views!

Yep. With cantis. Hopefully the Dyna Tech will be ready, just waiting on a few bits. Otherwise it'll be the Marin or perhaps the Bravado again.

Or maybe even the Kili Racer... :?

cool. thinking of bringing the Saracen Traverse. Sorting out the maguras at the mo, levers are on the bar. When i bought the Saracen, the old lady told me that it's never been offroad :shock: so this'll be it's maiden voyage as ive not ridden it anywhere yet.

That's what I like - potential for disaster, spices up any ride :twisted: :lol:

Tempted to bring the mmmBop with 150mm travel, 50mm stem, 760mm wide bars and giant super-tacky tyres, just to put a cat amongst the pigeons... :twisted: :lol:

Will actually be on the Ibis but I don't think I'll have time to switch to the P2s, so I'll be on Judy Teams set up for my lady. So in reality I'll have about 97% sag, does that count...? :shock:

Looks like her sister's going to be visiting now though, so it'll probably just be me riding, although I might bring the pair of them along for a walk & to look after the brews & grub! 8)

Really looking forward to it, although work, who had seemingly abandoned me, seem determined to give me a 6 day, 70 hour week this week :roll:

Excitement should overcome exhaustion though, like a small child at Xmas :oops: :lol:
