Scorn and ridicule or rigid forks, a U brake that is just for decoration and clogging up every 200yds, rubbish tyres over wet rocks and the possibilty of breaking bones. Mmmmmmmm. Might have to sleep on it. :lol:

It's alright for you on the easy peasy route but we have to come down Margery Hill. I've already had one near death experience on Cut Gate in the past too.

The On One threat is taking it a little too far though. On the other hand it might be better than riding retro on't rain soaked moor.

You going to be on the Parkpre? I'll be on mine tomorrow, but it's looking a bit like a hashed up build at the moment :roll:

Arrrgh! It's a quarter to two in the morning and I haven't even sorted a bike out yet.
I've spent the last too many hours working to meet a deadline before the bank holiday kicks in. Got to go to bed now though.

Bugger. Looks like I'll be the one yawning and drinking plenty of strong coffee then... :roll:
