Well I've got the Salsa finished and I'm taking it :twisted:


Looking forward to this, anyone had a look at the trail recently?

Still here and looking forward to it. We've had a good bit of rain, but with it being lime stone and the bed rock being just below the soil it drains real quick here. Plenty of variations and country lanes to choose from if necessary too.

Will hit the fell tomorrow for a quick blast on the single speed. It's very well drained up there so see no dramas what so ever. If it's wet next weekend we'll avoid the limestone as best as possible.

Still not sure what to ride.
Options are:

Saracen Kili Racer - rigid, e-stay, cantis, skinwalls.
GT Bravado - Z2's, XT, V-brakes, smokes.
Marin Muirwoods - rigid. 7spd, cantis, amberwalls.
GT Karakoram Elite - rigid, splatterpaint, u-brake, DX, skinwalls, bit small.
Modern Orange P7 - ( :lol: )

What'll it be...?

I will be bringing my extremely scruffy but much loved Spesh Hardrock circa 1989. Taking it to Glentress Today to check latest tweaks are OK and to spy out sections of secret singletrack for stuff MacRetro might be planning :wink:

Damn I might have to bail, Sorry, I've been collecting bits for my survival returning to do a RB ride but my bad back reared its ugly head again yesterday, I've been proactively fixing it since spring/summer (dalby warm up), but stress at work has made it counteractive. It will prob be too much too soon, too far away from home. :oops: :(

Have fun if I don't make it, and I'll keep training with early 2010 in mind
