Arrrggghh from me too.........lots of fiddly sh*t happend today......only got lunch at 3.30pm.....cancelled a meeting cos i was looking at the 'wrong wednesday' on the calendar etc etc etc........tomorrows another day phew !

legrandefromage do you live in the sticks ?........just wondering if it's worth setting up ' your own ' bike repairs inc mobile servicing......i've never known a ' just bike repairs' to go under......it's when you turn into a shop that it gets riskey. A few tools and healthy labour charges can earn ok when you get known, keeping it small and simple is good.

Only the 2nd ride, but I like it so far.
I rode some pretty rough chalky decents today, and it handled everything I threw at it.
Really pleased with the whole build so far!

It is indeed Corfe Castle, viewed from the Lulworth side :wink:
