Oooooh this sounds like an ace ride. Length is just perfect for me..... ;-)

I'll ask at home and see if I'm free.

Is a neon pink bike acceptable?? This'll give me the push to get the Haro finished in time for the ride.

right up your street rob as i know you like the downhill stuff :wink: neon pink is perfectly acceptable and the views a short way out of lord stones' cafe are quite amazing! feels like you're on top of the world.

and get some brut or hai-karate splashed on for that overall old-skool experience 8)

I am coming too!!

I will be on my 1991 Haro Extreme.

HOWEVER due to recent, erm, difficulties (see RB chat section) it may be touch and go finishing my bike off. I need gear and brake full cablesets (couldn't use anything off the GT, grrrr) and some grips to finish it off. And 2 straddle wires. If anyone sees anything cheap on the Internet or in local shops let me know!!

Can do you 2 straddle wires.

Then get yourself a set of Clarks pre-lube of CRC.

Not got any straddle hanger though (well don't think I have).

Dodgy Foam grips from Wilko's would do nicely or pick up some TruGrip/TGV/WTB for about £5 while at CRC.

Not sure what you like though.

Rob if you haven't sorted any straddle hangers before the 22nd remind me and I will bring some black ones with me that you can have, will have plenty of tinkering time to get your bike up and running I'm sure :wink:
