Being a chronic bike tinkerer I never have more than one bike fully built up at any given time. As a consequence I have now realised I will not have time to build up a proper retro bike or at least anything good !
So I'll be there on my pub bike which comprises a cheapo high ten frame of unknown make, a rigid brazed steel fork, girvin flex stem, friction thumbies, riser bars, white industries crankset (only good bit of kit), wheels and knobbly tyres obviously, canti-brakes and other bits. You will agree that the spec at least sounds retro and thus in spirit at least I'll be riding an old bike.
Wish I could stop tinkering and leave a good bike well alone but I'm an addict. Thats the first step apparently, realising you have a problem and accepting it !
Now I need to get some off road practice in round the local waste ground. Seems ages since I was last at Glentress.
Nice to hear we may have a newbie, hope he makes it
