From the south you pretty much ride past the pub. Just stop there. 100m behind you is the field.
Cropton is not very big.

Postcode would be the pub. New Inn.

Really not sure what bike to bring with me.

In a change to the usual disarray, all of these are pretty much ready to ride. So the nominees are:

1991 GT Karakoram Elite - DX M650
1992 Saracen Traverse - XT M732/5
1992 Saracen Kili Racer - LX M550
1993 Univega Alpina - DX M650/1
1995 Marin Pine Mountain - XT M737
1996 Specialized Stumpjumper - LX M565
1997 GT Bravado - XT M737/9
1998 Saracen HardTrax - STX RC

Slim chance I could have one of these three ready as well:

1989 Saracen Tufftrax - Mountain LX
1991 Saracen Trekker Hydrotech - LX M550/Magura HS
1992 Dyna Tech Diablo - LX M550/Dia Compe

Anyone care to help me decide or especially wants me to bring anything...?


Karakorum Elite; because if my Avalanche frame arrives tommorrow and I find a top pull front shifter in time I hope to bring that. Ahh anticipation!


The frame is here, it's here! I'm building it up now and throwing parts at it to see what fits, so far it has a Record OR front shifter with a MAVIC shim and a Suntour black plastic rear one... with a bolt in rear axle. If anyone is planning to bring a 28.8[?]mm top pull shifter or a 29/30mm seat clamp to sell after the ride I will pay money for them. See you all tommorrow [Or Sunday morning].

You should Chris, I am. It's finished now after a long afternoon of TMS and bloodied hands. It doesn't creak either when I ride it 8) .
By the way Geoff Boycott, Hallowed be His name, says it's going to be a bit cloudy tommorrow so shouldn't be too stifling for us all.

Awww, I'm going to be even more gutted not to be bringing a GT, but it's not looking likely unless miracles happen tomorrow.
