Not sure how this works, but my day starts of me driving all the way to Cannock and meeting up with everyone, then just before we start i have an issue with the rear hub which means i cannot continue, Damn bike Sad

Drove off to Daventry to drop wheel off for hub service.. then for some reason i ended up going home and finding a great deal on a 2010 "Cube Fritzz - The One" from Chain Reaction http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?PartnerID=79&ModelID=44304

I was looking for a new bike at the start of next year, however due to this bike being a huge steal i ended up buying a new bike, with the extra 10% they are doing at the moment i ended up saving over 1200 on a brand new bike so the day didn't ended up too bad in the end even if i am not 100% keen on the colour, i am sure hope White n Cocoa looks better in the flesh : )

You missed an interesting one - two punctures, a snapped chain, one lost set of car keys, two crashes and some blood. It was a good ride though.

Only took a couple of pictures which I've stuck on FB (Jason Carvalho). I'll see if I can embed them here...

what a ride,what an experience

slips 'n' slides
punctures 'n' snapped chains
falls 'n' cut knees

and that was just the ride to the cafe to wait for woody,who got lost on
his way to cannock !! Rolling Eyes

the only time i felt confident on with the bike was when i was wheeling
it up the garden path lol!

cheers guys for a ride i'll never forget
