Stem / Quill wanted...

I'm looking to buy a longer stem for my recently found 1980 steel roadie. Approx 110-120mm needed. The bike currently has a nice 3T but it's a shorter than I need at 90mm. Happy to swop if that is of any interest to anyone. Thanks.

Re: Looking to borrow a 54cm track bike for xmas!

Thanks Jo,
Offer much appreciated. Ideally we are looking for a 54 but if we can't find one I'll get in touch and see if we can make it fit. I haven't met Julien so not sure of his size, but apparently he normally rides 54. Thanks again.

The Razorback hill climb race organisers have confirmed that it is fine for any of us who want to do so to register at 8 - and likely do the climb around 8.30. Any takers? I'll let them know how many.

Hi Anthony, Thanks for the editorial link. That makes most of the key points well.
