    Me and the Mrs will be there representing The Knights of Niche.

    depends on a) whether there are places left (?)
    and b) whether i’m on a internship in tajikistan…

    SSUK08 was super duper.

    I live in York; it would be rude not to.

    By the way anyone got a SS / SS frame I can borrow / buy cheap? 18″ Inbred or similar would fit.

    Juan,

    Depending on where you’re based (OK France but it’s a reasonably big place)get the boat to Hull and someone will pick you up I’m sure (I’d do it if I get the bike and the entry sorted).

    Yes Mike but I have no Euro key on my keyboard! And Juan I know a few SS’ers in France and I understand they have a few SS events through the year. Also one to think about is the Euro’s this year in Dresden Germany and same weekend as SSUK, saves the boat/air fare πŸ™‚

    Riofer – Thanks for the offer and I’ll bear it in mind. I think for preference I’m looking for a disc brake frame though (and I’m assuming the frame is the one you mentioned in a previous post) ‘cos although a V-brake itself is relatively cheap I’d have to source a new rear wheel as well.

    That said any idea of the seat post diameter and what length fork it would take (I’ve only got 130mm+ or museum piece Pace 80/100mm around at the moment) – it just gives me an idea of what it all mounts up to.

    Or in other words I could order a new Inbred plus a single sproket, spacers and chain tug and then use all the bits off my 456 ‘cos they’re the same size. If I start needing V-brake, wheel with braking rim, new seat post etc it can start adding up quickly.

    Drop me the details if you want to iain(dot)miller(at)ce-electricuk(dot)com.

    igm – It would take your Pace forks, but probably not your seatpost (I think it takes a 27mm). So a new wheel and seatpost would be required as a minimum. Let me know if you want some pictures.

    Riofer – let me have a think. I won’t jump until I’ve got an entry anyway.
