Best reason for square taper I reckon as 6 years on the IF is still on the same b/b that it came with (and I've no idea how old it already was). I've got a range you can try for length but not in time for this weekend I'm afraid.

Mrs T and I did our own "Mini HONC" or if you prefer "HONC lite" this morning. Short loop from top of Cleve Hill to Guiting Power and back via Charlton Abbot.

Whatever the weather it's going to be messy people.

I'll try to add pics in a minute.

Did you ride on any of the actual route? Everything I found during the week was pretty much hard packed stone stuff of course not saying there isn't any field/bridal stuff in there but what I rode/recced in week looked pretty safe from swamps?

In fairness, we were riding the 2011 route, which in parts seemed to be the reverse of this years route.

It might be the worst clag we went through was not this years route. :oops:
