Just finished fettling the Yeti (for the Nth time :lol: )

- Yeti ARC stem fitted - mainly due to steerer tube length, as the highly polished RF one looks nicer IMO.
- Pace RC35 MDs fitted in place of RC38 Airforces - more in keeping period-wise.
- Middleburn RS2s fitted + 34t single ring.
- Pauls Melvin fixed - the jockey wheels kept sticking, it appears the previous owner had reassembled in the wrong order, as the back plate was upsidedown.

However, I WILL be testing it here before bringing it along this time :oops: no car-park fixing should be needed!

I thought the car park fixing was normal for a retro bike ride!

LOL! It usually is...
However, the last retro ride I went on i had everyone helping me look for jockey wheel parts from an exploded derailleur in the woods.

Good ride again today, definitely a 4 cake ride I think (one of everything.)
Only took a few bikey shots this time, parked-up part way round the red trail.
Tomorrow's jobs include swapping the Tiogas around on the rims (d'oh!) & trying out the blue stem.

Good ride :D I worked out on an OS map program ( http://www.bikehike.co.uk - very useful!) that we did 12.2 miles.
Though I'd done 19.6 by the time I had ridden up and gone back down via St. Andrew's lane - very slippy it was!

Just uploading the photos to Flickr now, so will post them when they're done.

Lovely cakes btw Jimbo 8)
