Nice pictures and write ups, did the you get the punctures in the Charge tyres? found them quite resilient so far.


Yes mine was in a Charge - no obvious reason for it - no sign of anything puncturing the carcass or any hard hits that could have caused a pinch puncture. To be honest I was dreading a flat as the tyres (1.8s) were a complete bitch to get onto the rm14 rims!!

It was great to see so many retro bikes out there. I was out there as usual GT spotting. I spotted 2 other Zaskars as well as the Xizang!


Hi Bloodfire, great to meet you - I was on the Xizang - this photo from Sussex Photography was taken while we were talking GT:

Well, finally feel able to write down a few thoughts post yet another HONC. Not sure as this ride ever gets any easier - thinking about the 100k course don't recall anything especially challenging and to be honest the going was good. However after the rolling section around 45 miles I was well and truly spent. The last few miles after the Syreford descent dragged a little, especially knowing what was to come over Cleeve Hill. This picture on sussex sports sums things up > http://gallery.sussexsportphotography.c ... d=18196885

Still great ride and sure I'll be back next year. Good to catch up with many and see such a big retrobike turnout.

Wonder how many do the 50k vs the 100k?

Those last fifty yards of rocky downhill got interesting pretty quickly!
