A ha! Must say, respect is due for the hair, I wish I had some!

Excellent first column aswell, well done sir!
Surely a good thing to get some younger faces on the frontline of the CCC!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Cheers folks on the column! Hair do is years of work 8)

The BX gets a mention in the CX column for the September mag as I had a request for a bit on rear arm bearings :roll: -just a little mention of the mild difference between BX and CX arms and how the job is a little bit nicer on the BX...

Hope to meet some of the BX boys at the rally - my mate in his Visa and myself are hoping to head down on Saturday to arrive in the PM in time for booze and such - camping over 1 night.

Well, the polypin is ordered! I just need to pick it up on Saturday before I set off.

As David figured out, it comes to around £1.66 per pint. As much as I'd love to, I can't afford to supply £60 worth of beer so what I thought I'd do is just leave a bucket next to it for donations. Of course those of you have sent me parts or worked on my car get freebies!

Don't forget your tankards!
