A bit OT but if anyone has a spare pair of Shimano allen key crank bolts (the ones that take a 8mm allen key) they could bring along I'll give them £3 for them. I need these for the Dyna Tech MT4 build.

Cheers.

Ditto - though I think I'll be putting some tyres more appropriate to the likely conditions on...! Mind you, Kona tyres had blackwalls anyway, didn't they... ;)

Who's bringing the Muc-Off?! :lol:

Guys, not sure a group of 30+ riders on 15 year old bikes will really be going fast enough for long enough for tyre choice to really matter! :lol:

KK,

have to say I'm inclined to agree with you there. I was avoiding the whole tyre discussion about tomorrow but I fear it's inevitable.

Think I'm going with the solling advantage of Fire XC Pro 1.8's as opposed to 2.1 Explorers which would be nice and comfy and grippy but will clog like the proverbial if it's wet.

(not riding retro - haven't got a bike built).
