Just tryin to finish building a Yo Eddie,snspping a canti mount hasn't sped the process up though :( Should be able to machine myself a couple of new ones tommorrow :D A big saddle to bar drop completes a retro perfectly(and makes riding in the peaks alot more interesting!)

Convention dictates that bike choice and build all sorted at least two weeks before event, several rides to bed everything in then night before a mild fettle turns into changing cassette and preferably also messing with the cantis (the more advanced also change the b/b for a shorter axle and then need to use shims to achieve fag paper clearance on the left hand chainstay). Preferably this all happens after a couple of glasses of wine using an intermittent headtorch as illumination and an adjustable spanner to leave the nuts smoothly rounded for the next day. Then the ride is filled with despair and regret about the folly of your previous nights actions. Or is this just me?

I have no idea what bike I'm bringing but there are several contenders that might just need a little tweak ......

As per Wales, leading to effective SS riding :wink:

I myself have tweaked the LTS, done one bedding in ride, and I'm now going to leave it alone....no touchy :lol:
