Yeah deffo take your steed. Red Kev can't wait... he's getting a shiny new set of wheels!

Would send an email about course content, but my bike knowledge is so crap I don't even know what I need to know. An I certainly don't know what I don't know. And what I do know is probably wrong anyway.

Having said that maybe changing gear/brake cables, gear indexing, removing/fitting chains, removing/fitting gear sets, and regular bits to check/clean and tighten, must have tools...

I'll send an email.

And if there's time some race day checks or get you to the finish line repairs. Oh and how to use CO2 properly would be good as well.

I'm with KidStardust.

Re assembling the bike - how do you get it all back the exactly how it is now.

Also re tubs- how do you fit tubs using tub tape!! I'm mega confused.

And again gear indexing.

Just a quick reminder about this day - which is full anyway - but anyone who hasn't paid the balance could you pony up before the day? No rush or anything, just letting everyone know now.

And make sure you e-mail Ris with what you want covered.......

Aye.
