i'm not out but i wont be riding retro, i cant figure out why my chain keeps skipping, its got a new chainset, new chain, nearly new rear mech and the teeth on the cassette dont look at all bad, no stiff links in the chain and as much wrap on the cassette as i can get.
it's doing my head in and i cant be fooked trying to sort it out in time for sunday, as i will be spending tomorrow at my dads getting pished

so unfortunatly i will have to be riding near the front with the 'uncool' modern riders :oops:

doesnt look bent but it could well be that, it'll have to wait till the new year now.

i'll bring the trek with me at least i know its dependable and i dont really mind if it gets trashed lol

OK, hope everybody is ready for this, weather looking good :D

Our #1 guide now can't make it. No problem putting a ride together BUT if there are any Cannock experts with route ideas that'd be good also :)
