I went to see him in Dunkeld last year. Really interesting night. Had lots of his old bikes on display including one of his original beat up Zaskars. Shame he’s been so ruthlessly targeted.

Well apparently I've been hobbling around since the beginning of September with 95% of a tendon ripped from my right knee.....bugger

Today's ultrasound scan confirmed the fears - oh well, onwards and upwards, slowly. Surgery beckons :facepalm:

Not good to hear mate. I thought it was taking a while.
Hopefully on the mend soon.

Just as well you have a spare leg on the other side. :)

Seriously, that sounds nasty. Look after it carefully.

Its inconvenient more than anything else - pain went the first week after impact. Just can't do much with leg as there's fek all attaching muscle to bone :|

Haven't had a single day off work though and on the plus side I'm saving a fortune driving to MacRetro meets across the country :lol:

Going to have a very sedentary winter then will need to ramp up on physio when I come off the table. Hope I get a nice instructor :D :D

Sounds interesting.

Jamie should have his rod-brake bike built by then. Think we'll need to fit the 3 speed hub though...

Edit: just looked closer at the route. The Scottish bit is similar to a ride I was planning for spring on the rod-brake bike. Starting at Drummore and going north to Dunnet Head.
