Hey kaiser know exactly what you mean, the 1/4 inch bounce on the paces are giving me the right hump and rides with mandatory mechanicals are a pain in the tonsils ..... That said cameron has taken to riding my bikes round the estate and my do they look pretty, so I will put up with the backache and mechanical failings to look like the dogs baws- and as you say, you'll have plenty of excuses.

I'll do a 2 pronged attack, work on the Salsa and the Wicked, see whats the most rideable come race day. I'm looking forward to the ride and want to enjoy it, so whatever I race it won't be the reason/excuse for not finishing. :)

Kaiser, me thinks you are too wedded to the joys of Trail centres for retro biking. These centres are designed around modern bikes :roll:

Even I'd go modern if the price was right which unfortunately is seldom the case but I keep finding myself eyeing the new Spesh Hardrocks, nice balance of hardtail and modern features plus they come in 23" frames 8)

I think our resolve is weakening :?
