    Cheers guys, very happy. I was getting a basket ready for the front of the bike though, just in case! And trying to work out how to get a spok on the front of him :0)

    @BareNecessities cheers Pete....

    An update on Mr Riley....he has had an amazing surgery..I'm a bit dumbstruck. It was a very invasive tumour, but they managed to save his leg :0)
    He had the outside two toes removed, plus the dew claw, which were all infected. The vet then used the skin from the toes to form a kind of figure of eight flap to close the wound, which would have remained open, due to the amount of tissue they had to remove. He then took the pads off the amputated toes and constructed new pads for his foot, to give him stability and cushioning so he can walk on it again....incredible, I thought!
    He is in a lot of pain, but on the mend :0)

    Can I ask for some positive thoughts for Mr Riley today please?
    He is going in for surgery on a rare mast cell tumour in his little foot this morning......it's a 6 hour operation, but he is in good hands with our vet Helen, who has pulled in a favour from her friend, who happens to be a top animal surgeon, to assist her.
    Bottom line,is that he might not be coming home, if it has spread elsewhere....if he does (hopefully), he may have one less leg than he went with, which would be ok with us :0)
    He knows something is up though.

    Os this any good?
    It's not a Kilauea, but is a Cindercone repainted.
    It has a rubbish chainset and the forks don't have any bounce, but is has got an XTR M900 rear mech, nice XT front mech, Suntour thumbies and original bits on it....it's set up with a small cassette and slicks on, and is a good fit as pictured for me at 6' tall.
    I am after £120 collected for it, which is less than I paid in a moment of weakness a couple of months back. I'll be keeping the bottle cage for something else.
    I'm not looking for a swap for yours by the way ;0) straight sale

    It does look good...and I know it will be quality!
    Any soft 'revelate' style rear bags on the horizon? I've just realised that I asked you that on the other thread but haven't checked there for an answer.
    Where can I see any images of the rando bag too please? :0)

    Just read through bud....very nice! It's funny, but I was thinking that the paint would look better I. The flesh, then the fadze appeared, and all was well again!
    Look forward to seeing this one

    I'm having a quick break on the way home....somewhere high up near nazeing.
    It's a bit wet up the forest..... Good work to the badgers who made it!
