Early 90's Woodbury racing scene etc. Doubt we were in the same age category though!

Yep, I started up there in '90 on a lilac Saracen Traverse & swapped to a blue Trek 7000 the following year (steel was so 1980's!)
We did the last SW retro ride there - see the aftermath thread.

I'm not going to have to cart that blue stem around for another month am I Coomber? Ice pack & blast it with Ibuprofen (28p in Lidl) & you should be ok for 12th Feb easy provided nothing is broken.

Ha! Well its been two weeks and is getting better. I will try my best, would like to go so I'll play it by ear.

I've had so many injuries I should buy Ibuprofen by the bucketload really. There has to be a time when I become immune to it I reckon.

Keep the stem as a spare anyway chap :wink:
