Thanks for the welcome.

I used some Tesco Vouchers to get the course (£70) and have some planned for a guided day ride around Mam tour next year.
Yep still got the comp, its part of the furniture. Only got the new one a couple of weeks ago and was not sure which to take or use on the course. After a quick comparison ride on a local BMX track built for the young ones (whilst they were all at school
) It seemed a lot easier on the 29er so I took both and decided it would make sense to use the new one even though it got plastered and wore off paint due to cable rubs, must get them re-routed and some protection on the frame.
I'll search or put a post up on that topic for advice.
