Hey Dan, there maybe some carbon insight, maybe Wal's going to use the new secret squirrel business component he told you about, I think the wide things are made of carbon.

Yep, you guys guessed it....... I've fitted a winged keel to the Vertex, not sure I can make the cafe but you guys won't go near me (literally) on the up & down river run (not unless you manage to fit floaties & paddle wheels before the weekend).



Anyone else riding the Redlands Classic on Sunday, Dan & I are doing the 50km ride, come on ye slack bunch of landlubbers get on board & put a bit of a show on for the retro's. AAAAAAAAGH (ok enough of the pirate references :lol: :lol: ).

I'll bring a poorly-named alternative version of something or other in further deference to Mr Lexcen.

I'd need an 8 speed derailleur & cassette to go with that.... and so it begins....

I was thinking of putting them on the Superlite, so I can put the bars/brakes etc from it onto the single speed.
