Probably not, we'll see if I have time to properly build it ;)

I have a few parts awaiting collection, rear mech, chain & cassette as well as the cranks, the chainrings are in the post, so it will be ready soon

Sorry this is getting regular now. Can't make the ride, me and ginner have to change a gearbox.

I'll be up early though if you want to call in and pick up a singlespeed for ben.

We started a little later than planned, but that meant I had time for a little bit of breakfast for a change!

Beautiful sunny day with hard trails under the inch or two of gloop and added snow & ice for two wheel drifting fun, Ben almost mastered the technique, going a good 6ft sideways before wiping out :lol:

In the last mile we found the trail a foot deep in snow for a few hundred metres & once again Ben decided to test gravity. Gravity won, grabbed his front wheel and deposited him slowly over the bars :lol:

A quick wash of the bikes to get most of the mud off & we ventured into the local cafe in Binbrook, hot tea, coffee and cake all round with added bike banter

Ben & Chris took the photo's today, there should be some good ones to come when they've been uploaded.

Great ride as usual, mud,snow and ice all combined to the route trickier than usual as Ben proved on more than one occasion :lol:

Pics seem to have ended up in a very random order and are pretty crap until I found out what the settings did on my new phone :oops:

Off out now to pick up the biggest pizza the takeaway has :D

Oddly don't ache today. Some nice dismounts from me, don't believe what they said :lol:

I could believe seeing a singlespeed bike that had no mechanicals though, something odd about that. (though the 'singlespeed' was often walking speed :P )
