    Right, not been on any of my bikes since Morzine last year. The flip side of this is that my business is now ticking over nicely and the OH’s disaster of a self build house is on it’s way to be sorted too.

    These months of ridiculous work now mean I can have a couple of mornings a week to ride again πŸ™‚

    In anticipation of this I’ve bought a set of carbon forks off the ‘bay and will be spending tomorrow morning fitting them and giving the Handjob a once over ahead of a short shakedown ride. Probably without a huge, fully stuffed camelbak πŸ˜‰

    May even stick the outer ring back on the HJ and make it a proper XC bike.

    My screen’s playing up I can only read certain words, is this right?

    Remember for the forks, measure thrice, cut once.

    It’s the star nut that normally causes me grief – even with a setting tool!

    Nah. It’s measure once, cut three times.

    the problem with Jamie’s method is cutting a bit back on πŸ˜€

    I once lost concentration (answered the phone in between marking and sawing) and cut about 3″ further down than I wanted to 😳 fortunately it was only a 50quid fork…

    I thought they meant off the legs.
