I registered on the JMC forum - thanks Sinnerman.
And thanks for the timeline.
Every time I go by Woodhead I look out for the memorial (and bend the ears of anyone with me). That includes putting an extra bit on a road bash up to Holme Moss just to pay our respects.

Don't know what my MTB weighed, but my road frame is 4lbs exactly with chunky drop-outs, chain peg and long tubes.
I used to think the MTB was fragile and nervous, but I got used to it and it didn't break so I kept hammering and smiling broadly.

Do you remember when Nike first launched the spd Mountain bike shoes, everyone was going mad for them.

Having seen some of your other builds and the research and attentiom to detail you put into them there is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be very special and very worthy tribute to a man sadly taken in the prime of his life. Genuinely looking forward to every little update
