Nah, wouldn't inflict those forks on anyone! As for the Reba's, as you know they're damn good forks ;)

Hopefully the RS Reba forks for the clockwork will be here on Friday or Saturday, so should have time to fit them for the ride on Sunday. Also got some new XT SPD's coming, dunno if they'll arrive in time, may have to stick the XTR's on instead!

Might be a +1 on Sunday, will confirm ASAP

The more the merrier.

Does anyone have a 70 or 80mm 1 1/8 aheadstem for standard bars i could borrow for the ride? I'm wanting to bring the on one out for it's maiden voyage but my stem is way too long.

Might bring the khs though. Decisions, decisions

Forks fitted as well as an XT front mech I had kicking about!

Just awaiting the SPD's, hopefully they'll be here on Saturday, if not I'll whip the ones I have on the 'sofa' off ;)

Looks like the Clockwork is getting it's 1st outing this weekend, should be a fun shakedown ride!

Still not 100% sure if I'm a +1 or not yet, sorry.

Andy. Looks like there'll be at least 3 bikes on shakedown rides.

Chris long, are you a definate now or a maybe? Do you want to meet us in brigg and come in convoy? Unfortunately i'm in the same boat as you- can only carry 2 people and bikes!

Ended up working all day today Chris, so I will have to give you the 7000 as well and let you swap the headset and forks over if you don't mind.
Won't be any rush for the 7000 frame back :wink:
