See you soon Marcin

I have been preparing my Specialized Rockhopper to bring - it's been hung in the garage for quite a while as I have been riding my Orange but it's quite a striking colour ( bright green!)

Have a safe journey - we shall be in Betswy Coed on Friday at the campsite!

Love to Kat and the boys!

Sweet ride Chris, intrigued on whether the flexstem or Manitou's offer the greatest amount of suspension......

Not had much luck so far with mechanicals

1) Parkpre M900 mech decided it no longer needed the helicoil thread for the cable clamp bolt which came out like a spring :roll: .

2) With an XT m737 rear mech fitted the Parkpre was taken to work to test and the Balistic ti stem decided it was time for the bar clamp to snap just near the thread weld (and no I hadnt over tightened it) :(

It's all ready to go now though, and the 3 day buildathon on the '89 Rockhopper Comp is complete so thats good to go also (finally)
