Morning Cruddites.......

Had to put in a concrete base for a new shed yesterday to house the latest addition to the The Rookies arc, a rabbit.

500kg dry weight of concrete mixed and laid in a day, was totally knackered last night and have a few achy muscles today, quieter day today as I'm doing a mini rebuild on the sons Scott as he's starting riding again having not done much for a year.
Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.

    You beat me to it by a minute!

    Morning

    Should be out on a reliability ride, but as we ended up staying in Chester last minute - its family time, so not a bad compromise.

    Lazy start planned, then off to another museum, nice lunch somewhere and then travel back later (probably to the pub) ;)

    Morning Tards,

    Woke up early due to last nights Thai takeaway backfiring on me :) Have done a bit of messing around with suspension settings on the Panzer for the hell of it and am now trying to catch up with some work. Ho hum. Busy week ahead as I'm only in for 3 and a bit days before Wales beckons.

  • Afternoon Losers!

    An interesting day so far, but had a nice dinner at M&S with some friends. It wasn't fun walking back to the car in the snow/rain. I got soaked.

    I think the afternoon will consist of me doing nothing but drying off.

    Laters!
    It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.

    About 18" when 'squatting', the pen we have is 6'x3' so the base is a bit bigger than that and about 4" thick.
