    I was up Hamsters on Sunday, saw Tony and the bloke on the Cannondale but never saw you, where did you ride?

    Tony said he’d seen you mate – I was round at the skills loop showing my 2nd eldest how to ride it – crashed at full speed into a ditch! (what a twat 😳 😳 😯 ). Still, Will had a laugh at his Dad’s expense.

    I’m riding on Wednesday night then it’s curtains until 21st / 22nd (going to Italy 😆 ) Also getting my old beast powder coated while I’m away 😯

    I am hopefully getting a tour of Guisy woods from Gunner tomorrow night. Trying to get out regularly again. What colour you gtting the beast done? Look out for photos from our club ride on traliblazers site, spent a while on dangerous descent getting photo’d. Enjoy Italy!!

    Saw you’re going tomorrow – my mate Rich can’t ride till Wed, otherwise I’d have tagged along with you and Gunner (Rich is the big lad on the Cannondale)

    Going for silver on the frame – Romax do alloy wheels so I figured they’d do a good job in silver ❗ Also couldn’t decide what else to do it in (Black makes it look like a Marin 😡 )

    Should have joined you with the trailblazers lot – couple of noce birds I thought 😈

    Cool, not bothering with a new bike then? Starting to think about getting some pads, getting nervous of rocks which is slowing me down

    Still might get a new bike, but can’t decide what to get – I thought this would help me sell the Whyte if and when the time comes 😥 (‘er indoors thinks I won’t want a new bike if I get mine painted 😯 )

    Get pads – saved my knees when I was flying into that ditch yesterday. I wear elbow pads too – amazing how long it takes for a smacked elbow to recover….

    I was thinking about using just knee pads for the summer – full pads get a bit hot

    apparently 661 have just launched some soft pads that harden on impact, going to research them.

    Get a 575 you can build it as heavy or light as you want/need!!
