    I’d better check my car will start actually. I don’t think it’s moved for a fortnight.

    Roll call even – I’d just got up.

    I wrote “bare responsibility” at work the other day, when someone said it’s “bear”, I thought that was just a big hairy thing. D’oh.

    really?
    you have any doubt its going to be a mud bath?

    oh i know it’ll be a mud bath…but which bike will be better in it?

    cx bike with super skinny tyres = great in some slop but not on any nadgery bits

    hardtail = slidey in mud but more controllable on anything techy

    these are the issues of someone with more bikes than sense

    I will be sporting a SS hardtail with a much too ‘spinney’ ratio to be competitive accessorized with a pair of nice and skinny spikey tyres.

    i was going to use gaffer tape and tippex, but that sounds far more professional 😉

    Here.

    HT with 1.35 26″ CX tyres. (Won’t make the slightest bit of difference – I’ll be carrying/pushing/wheezing most pf the time.)

    We’re in the middle of some hardcore staple gun and barrier tape action – there are a couple of muddy sections but its mainly firm or maybe claggy. a bit.

    Maybe the predicted -6 temperatures tonight will firm things up a bit more…

    It’s nowhere near as sloppy as HTN1 though.

    so then, oh course master

    which will win, CX or MTB 🙂

    I’ll be there and I’m going for the cx bike twinklydave. I think half of it will be muddy and half will be fast!

    I’ve got one bike and one set of tyres, so it’s a simple choice for me..

    Here Sir!

    Just for the fun of it I’m going to make no modification to my ride. This sjhould make the 2 hours extremely interesting 🙂

    Iamin. Floundering around near the back I should think. Think Dave Haygarth might do quite well…

    2 of us here coming as well. I’m thinking of a rigid hardtail with discs and skinny tyres to try and combine the best of both worlds.

    Grandma and myself will be there, bringing up the rear no doubt.
