The 'Mystery Bike' is built and I'm going to try it out in the morning to make sure it stays together and nowt falls off!

I must admit that it's been a bit of a so-and-so to put together and taken a lot of fiddling and a bit (!) of bad language but hopefully it will be OK on the day!

Weather report for Saturday seems favourable on Look North this evening, I just hope the rain holds off until we get back!


Took it out this morning and it seems OK. The only bit that fell off was me :oops: :oops:

On my Scott I have cut down flat bars (as all proper early 90's XC racers have) but on the Mystery Bike they are wide risers and I completely misjudged a narrow gate that I usually fly through. Caught the tip of the bars on one side which threw me off sideways and I ended up in a heap in the road! Luckily I didn't damage anything of value (especially my brand new 3/4 knee tights!!) only myself with scrapes on elbow, hip and knee. I'll be OK for Saturday - although I will now have an excuse if I drift off the back........... :wink:

Good news and bad news I'm afraid I'm pulling out of Saturdays ride as I'm not 100% fit net and a 2 hr drive on top of a 30 mile ride is a bit too much at the mo ,on the flip side I've now got clearance from work for the weekender .sorry its short notice.
