Peprieve for the old bike.



Video of Glenburn

I was thinking the old road bike was about to bite the dust, the bottom bracket is stuck. I decided to try and work round it so as not to disturb it to death. The problem was in the front changing caused by a new chainset being much closer to the frame, the old changer just didn't work that far in. I got around the problem by 'borrowing' a changer from my wifes unused, rusting road bike in the back of the bike shed and managed to get the old Flying Scott back on the road.
Anne and I went out on the bikes for a couple of hours over to Lochwinnoch just to make sure all was OK, sure enough its working fine, well its fine until its time to change the bottom bracket, who knows though that may be 10 years from now.

Just have to see what you've been up to, and I keep coming back!
This waterfall would be worth seeing, and those down hill tracks look great fun.

The waterfalls great, its onlt 50m away from the track but its so well hidden you'd never know it was there. Its also a bit of an adventure getting down to it.
Some nice trails too, along the beach and Fairlie are easiest to navigate with great views.
How'd you get on over Troon way?
Hope you found some nice trails.

Oops! see you made a comment down the page. Nice to know you had a good time.
Camera is an IXUS 50 its tiny got a great macro and I like the video. Picture quality is OK for snaps and with a 2GB card I can take lots. Battery life is a bit short so needs charged every time after use.
