you'll also need a US->UK adapter I think (I did anyway), but that's only £3 off ebay.


I got mine from potts for less less than a pound, its just a shaver adaptor.

not sure Iam out tonight I feel like poo, I shall text you later Ed if I shall be there...

How was Tuesday? What do you think about this as a 40th birthday option for me?

Cheaper than taking a mistress.

Tuesday was extremely select...me, Ed and John. Good dry, mud-free ride round the usual Ticknall haunts, topped off by joining the Ticknal Knitting Group in The Chequers...... surrrreal 8) 8) 8)

My whoopeee news is that the Kona threads are fine and the new bottom bracket has gone in like a dream. Think I'm still taking the Dyna-Tech on Saturday.

When are you off to France...and more's to the point when are you back?

hmmm. I'm sort of getting it but it's made in Taiwan (not that that's a bad thing), but for that sort of money (will be around £800 or maybe more to your door after taxes etc) you could have someone make one for you to your exact spec. Also would a 23" effective top tube not be too long for you? Having said that 4130 is what my Surly is made from and I like that :D

this chap: www.shandcycles.com 8) Check out the red bike called 'Mor Dearg' in the top right hand corner - that's the sort of thing I'm after.

Not out tomorrow I'm afraid. Work and stuff. In France next week so the Tunnocks will have to wait. Have a good one chaps.
