As long as its in the spirit of retro I'm sure it'll be ok but as max says Pre '95 frame is a requirement.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Cool, cheers Max and Bryan, I'll try to set me partner's mind at rest.

I've not ridden Stanmer without discs for years and NEVER without suspension, could be interesting...

Maybe I should practice...

I get to finish work early on Fridays, so I reckon I could be there by 2.30-ish....not sure if that helps?

:lol: careful now, you're not really entering the spirit of things by actually trying to win! ;)

I'll just be glad to get round better than last year

Cool, yeah, I should be able to manage that, just need to get a bike working now...

I had a disastrous night at Cranks where the new headset I was trying to fit didn't fit on any of the forks I tried (Tange headset, crown race too small :(). And then when I tried to revert to old setup it seems that I'd lost part of the steerer extender that I didn't know existed. Gaah!
