Good grief I'm no way ready for this, mentally or physically, see ya at the back :oops:

Also My super clean Muddy Fox build is nowhere near ready, plus I'll have 7 gears. :( (documented in readers rides)

:idea: I am seriously tempted to bring my Raleigh Apex i'm getting back today, at least its finished and already mucky...

two minds about that...

:?:
