    I've got compact Force 22 chainrings going spare as an option for Acliff's cranks ^

    There was a bit of seatpost chat a few pages ago that I've just caught up on, and if anybody has need for a really short 25mm Thomson Elite (black, inline) to fit an old Look frame I've got one that I no longer need.

    It's 175mm from centre of rails to the bottom of the post, so it's unlikely to fit safely in the majority of cases, but thought I'd put it out there anyway.

    Hi Patch, I will DM you now. I've got just what you need, but there might be logistical problems at the moment because of the obvious!

    Good stuff! I'll see you both then, it'll be like Hedley on the Hill all over again :)

    I'll aim for up there, and just hang out with the biggest crowd I can find for the vibes. Sadly I'll almost certainly be without a bike, I'll get dropped off and picked up somewhere on the course, so good to know there are options for shelter in Bovey if conditions aren't ideal!

    Cool cool, sounds like a slow wander all the way to the top over the ~4 hours will be ideal then. I'll make sure to give you a hearty cheer again!

    Anybody else on here planning to be racing that I can keep an eye out for?

    Ah didn't realise it wouldn't be a closed road, that's good to know thank you.

    Will aim there, and hope the cattlegrid isn't as treacherous as it sounds for everybody's sake!

    @dbr was there an obvious place that crowds congregated at Haytor a few weeks ago?

    I'm making my annual hillgrimage from Norwich to watch the Nationals again, and I would usually walk up and down the entire course during the opening riders, but I'm not sure I fancy 6+ miles on foot just for the sake of it (conditions pending!), so I'd be tempted to camp out at a good spot, then maybe make my way to the top to see the rocks afterwards.
