SUM=[Google Earth] * [Ordnance survey]^2

OS maps "borrowed" from Multimap, overlayed onto Google Earth = crafty trail finding tool.
All the detailed markings of "creative" b.o.a.t.s from OS explorers, onto the detail and advantage of actually being able to see the terrain from google. classy, im sure you will agree. if only they would get themselves sorted out with Wales at google! maybe ill scan in some MBR and singletrack route cards and overlay them too.

Lucy Finished

All done, front brake on, new levers on, saddle adjusted, spacers had to go under the bars due to complete massive steerer tube on the new forks, but will see how it rides before cutting it down i thinks.
looks pretty cool if you ask me! could use a new crankset and pedals, but the current ones work, so we will see. I filed the front of the dropout slightly (about 2mm) to make the ratio (32:16) work directly which is cool, but if i decide to change the ratio probably pointless, we will see eh, its a SS, so its never gonna be in the right gear anyway (2:1 at the moment is most comfortable on a very slight uphill)
