I'm in the same club, although I'm already redundant.

Hope you find a new job soon, it's a shame to have to flog all your 'spare' bike parts

Speaking of which, anyone want any non retro bike parts ;)

Yeah quite a few jobs are going to go soon I fear, what with this economic climate.

I've not got those parts spare (running X9 on the susser & XT on the hardtail which is for sale)

Do have Fox Float R 130mm forks, Deore Octalink BB & Chainset, Orange 27.2 seatpost & a few other bits, which I will be sorting out this week, as well as a couple of retro items.

That sucks.

On the plus side. A few years ago I spent a few months as a "DSS sponsored rider". How you deal with the situatioon can have a significant influence on the outcome.
