Return of the Stiffee

In an attempt to resurrect the Stiffee, I’ve finally stopped procrastinating and have ordered some new Rockshox Revelation 426 forks for it. When they arrive, which will hopefully be early next month, it’ll get the 9 speed shifters and cassette along with the Shimano XT brakes from the Craftworks which should sort things out nicely.

I’ll then ressurrect the Craftworks with the aid of a new rotor and some Hope +20mm adaptors. Despite the fact I don’t ride it very much it’s not worth enough to sell, so it’ll get the second-line parts and remain in the cellar for occasionally local rides and the odd trip to Scotland.

    “the odd trip to Scotland”…. does this mean we might see you up here in 2006?

    And talking of odd trips to Scotland, our Rich will be having his haggis, neeps and tatties on Wednesday to empathise with his Northern buddies. We had ours on Saturday ‘cus we’re out on Wednesday!

    Should I have found the plate of haggis yet? It wasn’t in the fridge earlier.

    Depending on work and stuff, a Scotland trip isn’t out of the question later in the year. However I’m aiming for a nervous breakdown sometime in late March or early April, so that might have some effect on any plans.
