the dishwasher is too sensitive a subject for me to even suggest that as a joke matt, also, i make that noise and strike that pose each time i don the weaver valley get up anyway 😉 you’re right not to get yourself in debt over a new bike titch, keep pecking away at the gaffers at your work and see what you can do. nick, easter weekend for me is a definite no chance, but the saturday of the classic or the saturday before is ok… what day can you do matt? i also want to get new brake pads on my bike before we go as i think they are the thickness of a stamp at the moment. If nick or matt could give me a few pointers, that would be great as hydraulic brakes are new to me and could do with avoiding a nightmare when it coming to ‘bleeding and burping’. thanks.tthewParticipant25 March 2014 at 12:06Post count: 121
26th would be best for me.
Cheapest place to buy pads from is Superstar Components and they’re not hard to change. Park Tools website is good for online instructions but certainly give me a shout if you want a hand.NickBParticipant26 March 2014 at 08:37Post count: 232
If you can sort a date I’ll put it on the calendar – do we have to book places at Antur Stiniog?andybeswickParticipant26 March 2014 at 10:15Post count: 123
put it in for the 26th
you do have to book, i’m going to book a place on monday, i’m sure you could book yourself but if people send me some cash via bank transfer or drop it at my house, i’ll book it all in one go. I’m doing a couple of night training rides at the mo round marbury and the odd ‘just up and down old pale’ (good down hill practice) if anyone fancies tagging on. thanks for the offer of help on the brakes matt, i’ll put the new ones in and take it from there and if i need to do any fettling, i’ll call in your services.PaulParticipant26 March 2014 at 19:27Post count: 391
what night are your ‘training nights’ andy I’m looking to ride after work around marbury delayer places like that!
also if you need any help on discs set-up give me a shout You’d think I would know a little by now from building so many bikes 😛tthewParticipant26 March 2014 at 22:09Post count: 121
I’m booked and I’m seeing Derek tomorrow so I’ll try and twist his arm.andybeswickParticipant26 March 2014 at 22:36Post count: 123
you cheeky boy Mr Hornby! booking before me! You gone for the full day yeah? titch, I’ll sort something out with you regarding a blast round marbury, pm me phone number and I’ll text you 24 hrs before hand. just for the record, when I say training ride, it’s not on a par with jules on a Saturday, it’s only for a couple of hours and it just keeps the Budweiser cans out of my hand for the night. You had any joy blagging a rig for antur titch? I’ve been doing a bit of research on the day and found this video http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5d-WrZ3hN6Q the black looks like it could be left to the ‘stormtrooper boys’ but I may stretch to it when confidence builds from the epic looking blue and red. be great if delboy could make it, not seen him for time. Thanks also for the offer of brakes titchPaulParticipant27 March 2014 at 08:20Post count: 391
the red looks good, no look yet, but i will ask again today 😉 try get an orange 5 or alpine 160 😉 if i can get one i will deffo book on and if the offer of a lift still lies then I’ll take you up on it andy (al things being well)
