Saw a couple of nice retro rigs round Dably red route yesterday, one Kona & didn't see what the other one was (I was too busy being knackered)

Any of you guys?

was there the Sunday before and saw a fully rigid Orange and truely ancient early 80s thing that had sadly lost it's decals (looked like a Saracen but could not be sure). Dalbys good fun but I was knackered towards the end.

Yeah it's pretty tiring, even on a modern full susser (especially when you're full of cold & not ridden in over a month!)

I prefer to mix & match the new red route, old red route & black route to suit the mood I'm in, parking @ Dixon's Hollow gives you good options to do this.

I found it tiring on the 575. It'll be damn hard on a fully rigid bike

Best weapon of choice in Dalby is a rigid single speed 29'er

If you see one chances are it will be me :D
