Looks like a great day out Keith if a bit chilly looking still, have to join you for a wizz over that way in a bit :)

Might be able to ride on the road in a few months.

Re: Steg pegz

I wouldn't fancy those myself for a couple of reasons, on very steep down hills they will restrict weight transfer off the rear and in deep ruts or any area where you could encounter a stump I ride on the balls of my feet and again they would impede that, so wouldn't be for me.

Re: Africa Twin Tyre Combo?

He was a handy club racer and loved the sport, as has been said he had the money to do everything properly and profesionally, raced with him at Hottrax Endurance events and his team were always immaculately turned out and he did quite well. RIP.

Re: ...the puncture cover up!
