and i have to say i am struggling to decide which bike to use! :?

my (cough cough)modern clockwork is still my favourite but it has been set up for drew for mayhem so doesn't currently suit/fit me, i find myself torn between my proflex (because of the riser bar) and the fat chance because of being a hard tail with easier gears than the proflex . . . hmm :? :? :roll: :roll:

I didn't have much of a choice to make really. No way the Overbury's is being subjected to that much mud and my Jamis would kill me over those hills.
I almost just checked the Santa Cruz on the roof rack, but put in a bit of effort and got my Girlfriends Rock Lobster set up for me.
First proper ride since I built it for her, so there could be some mechanicals :roll:
I'm DJing tonight, but hope to be able to escape around midnight.
Could be a tired bunny in the morning

I fancied taking my Bear Valley but I'm a whore to my modern bike so I'll probably be boring and just bring that.

I was on the way!! :lol:

awesome ride today, just the 4 of us along with about 8000 ramblers! :evil: :evil: :evil:

we managed to avoid for the most part but some were worth opening gates for etc! :wink: :wink:

we found a few new alternative routes as a result of avoiding the red sock brigade aswel which turned out to be a bonus including one epic climb!! :shock:

here's my one pic from the day! :D :D tintin has more! :D
