Arnt sintered pads a lot harder on the discs. I have had this conversation with motorcyclists where the brake rate is much higher and the discs are probably alot more expensive, so maybe its more of an issue than with mountain bikes. I'll check mine before this weekends stint (if we can make it). St...

Sorry we missed you yesterday Al. It was a strenuous (for me and viv anyway) ride. First time I have seen Ian push his bike!

Ashton court should be drier than our last visit (and therefore more fun!)

Our thanks to Rob as well. He put up with slow ascending and fairly quick descending (with just a hint of control!)

I have never been so tired!

Ashton Court will be easier tomorrow.
See you there.

Great ride everyone. We are officially "nutters"!! :lol: That track at the top (that we did twice) needs the Adrian seal of approval. Hopefully that will be soon. The bit in Kings Wood will get some attention as soon as I get back from Aberdeen. I definately think its an after work venue. ...

Brilliant days ride. We thought Gerry had had it at one stage but the smiles re-appeared after the first down hill. The new loop sounds good...that will be next weekend then? (No...whites first please).
See you all later this morning.

Steve

Thanks for having a look.

I did ring your home phone and left a message on your mobile but apologies for the no-show anyway.

The pedigree at our local, the white hearte, went down really well.
