Was worth the journey from oxford for me, unfortuanatley I left it too late to pack any bits to sell, but.....

NOS amber wall smoke/dart £10 for the pair, just what I was looking for to put on the Roberts.

Red Xlite risers, heading for the Pace DH build.

And possibly set up a deal for a friend of mine regarding him getting a ballburnished zaskar.

I managed to sell more than I bought, so it was a win for me. Sadly I'll be away cycling around Europe for a couple months now so will miss the next ones. Sacrifices indeed.

A pair of tyres and some bars worth travelling 150miles? That's a mighty positive attitude! Don't know if I could justify the environmental cost myself.

Well, when it came down to it when i woke this morning i thought I could either sit at home incinerating kittens and fluffy ducklings, or call my mate, load the bikes and go for a look around bristol.

So stopping off at mud dock I grabbed some bargains and then had a nice day out cycling around the city on my 20 yr old pace.

As for the Zask LE, yup i know whose it was, I am with any luck going to see the chap who is interested in it tomorrow, so hopefully I can be the one to bring the seller and buyer together, although as a fellow Oxfordian I will have to warn him about the long walk to bristol in order to pick it up.

(No kittens were harmed in the making of this post, unfortunately however I did accidentally flatten a fluffy duckling when I sat down...see what you made me do by making me reply!...duckling murderer!) :lol:

A nice day out in Bristol makes everything worthwhile.

On a related note: Mark, we ought to have a ride after each jumble, even if only to the pub.

Not so much a mate as brought together by genetics lol, he's my cousin. The frame is indeed mine and I am tired looking in it's lovely shiney mirror finish at my ugly face!

Fantastic jumble as always, nice one Mark. :D
