Re: EU. In or out?

Re: EU. In or out?

Probably a good idea if we do actually ever leave.....someone will need to protect the decent people from all the projectile toys being flung ou...

Re: The next step....

It's a 20 year old Whyte design as I understand the story "Mr Whyte" designed it for Marin who didn't want to know so he did a production run himself, sold them all but pulled the plug on the run just as the design caught on. The "girderfork" works great no dive when braking etc the shock is situate...
