Well I just spent the best part of an hour hitting a Alu axle pretty much constantly in a Ti-Glide to get the bearing out. Stuck well in and didn't believe it would come out.

My Left arm is in pain, my right thumb has a big blister and hurts from gripping the hammer. But the bearings came out.

As long as the Marin fits in the car I arent bothered if it isnt stripped, I dont mind doing it and bringing you whats left back if your pushed for time?

Right, I'm about to pop down to Tesco's for supplies, any last orders?

Modern Simon has backed out due to babysitting issues.

ss Karakroam is looking most likely to get ridden, although the Stumpjumper did whisper 'pick me' earlier......and if its still dry the RTS could come out.

Bugger it, I dunno :roll:
