I wear knee pads, mainly xc but with a couple of technical sections, bit like the 'black' at bedgebury but 4 or 5 times longer with 3 other bigger lines, (we'll be pushing back up) everything is rollable and its HT friendly. Its dry and running quick at the moment.

Cant recommend this place enough. :)

Hope to see ya there, ninja

You were right darren, you can't buy just the gear indicators on their own....£90 bill for a new pair.

Whats wrong with the shifters Keith ? I thought it was just the window which you can remove

Yeah it was just the gear indicator, the shifters are fine but Shimano dont do that part seperately. You can remove them but your left with no cover on the shifter so all the crap will then be able to get into them.
I had SLX shifters but took this opportunity to upgrade to XT.
