What to carry,what tyres,I haven't even finished the bike yet!
Project name "Wobble Weapon" currently not far off.
Whats everyone riding?
This will end up single speed(36-16 I think)and rigid due to some nice Pashley forks that found there way to me.
Hope to get there early Friday evening work permitting,see you all there.

Ah, I didn't suggest they were my friends, but if you ignore me, how can I return your magazine? :idea: :?:

I'm a USE shim away from a Szazbo ( ignoring the 26.2 & 4 ones that are too small) .

However if the weather is crap I don't fancy my chances with its acres of mud clearance. So I might be on the Whyte :oops: or the FRO.

Don't worry, not intending to ignore but simply pretending I don't know you to keep a low profile :wink:

This should be a good days ride, fingers crossed weather remains mild

strangely, despite Wales' reputation, it has only to my memory rained twice in the 12 years I have been going.... not that it makes much difference as you're going to get coated in mud anyway.
