Can never be accused of basking in reflected glory because being matt you don't reflect.

Where is the Tuesday ride this week?

On another note I have just got some clipless peddles and set my bike up but i think my Quadra shox are now pretty much spent. I do have some Judy's to put on.
Can i just remove the canti brakes and put them straight on the Judy's is it as simple as that, or will springs etc fly out in every direction if i remove the canti's - noob question i know :oops:

Think it depends on your cantis!! Some have open springs, others have them behind some plastic. There's not much too them though so you should be ok even if they go boing!

We're riding from Smisby this week. Just go through Ticknall, past Chequers for a couple of miles and then turn right. Follow this link: http://g.co/maps/5yequ

Park in the street outside the pub. 7pm.
