Re: Saddles

Actually, thinner seatposts are more comfy. 27.2 in Ti would be a good option. Fit a shim if necessary. Alu frames are, typically, the most unforgiving too (though much can be done with design and manufacture to help overcome this). Yup... thats what I was meaning Colin sorry.. was asking him if ma...

Whats the one event you'll miss, missing out on the most this year?

Just sat doing my accounts (dont you hate such things :sad: ) for the respirator appeal and yet again I thought about how sad it'll be that we don't have to fight for a golden ticket on whichever 10am it is that the event is sold. What a sad year for mountain biking (amongst many other much more sad...

Mike, to be forgiving on the spine... Isnt it better thinking more about the whole kaboodle (who on earth invented that word!).

Re: Respiratory Fundraiser The Yield

3 things I forgot to mention. 1. By giving the money straight to the unit it means they can hopefully claim back the vat on the units of which I will suggest that ots what we roased the money for. Potentially they should be able to get almost 3 full units/kits from the fund. 2. There is another flea...

Respiratory Fundraiser The Yield

Hi all. Bear with me as my dyslexia has always meant (organisational difficulties) that I'm not very good at, well, organisational stuff. Hence why sometimes my posts are all over the place. Opened up a new thread to explain where yer moneys gone/going and whats been happening with 'kit' and orderin...

I'm out. Self-isolation means I can't leave the garden for a ride, though I could camp in it.

No problem though. As you know I'm not the competitive type :lol:

Here we go. Seems everyone liketh a good old comp. Will try not to inundate it with rules. Just try not to inundate your report with how much you had to drink of liver-affecting beverages pre or post the BAm. Rules: 1.
