Please could I borrow...
#1
Hi

I'm now committed to a big charity bike ride. It combines two of my great passions - cycling and cricket. The ride is taking in the "Big Six" cricket test match grounds, namely The Oval, Lords, Edgbaston, Trent Bridge, Headingley and finishing up at Old Trafford. Dates are 9-12 July

We're lucky enough to have a support vehicle and there are a few things we'll need to make sure we get the most of having it. Does anyone have that I can borrow:

*a rear mounted bike rack that would fit a Qashqai
*a spare rear wheel (unlikely to be used but just in case)
*a spare 10sp and a spare 9sp road rear mech (again, unlikely to be used)?

Anything else we should be thinking about carrying? Will of course have the usual toolbox and cables etc

Thanks!

A few questions.....

Does the Qashqai have a towbar that is bolted to the car - not a swan neck type?
Rear wheel - I'm assuming 700c fom the road mech request, but campy or Shimano Undecided
Are the rear mechs shimano, campy or sram?

That would be great - thank you. I'm away this weekend too but I'll drop you a line next week to arrange something. Happy to come and pick them up
