Would you recommend a Stop or a rack on a descent like that?

Seriously, though - a most excellent and generous offer!

Well, judi, at, say 54g /m that's 54 kg /km – so 324 kg (or ~51 stone if you prefer).

Thank you ... About 3rd of a Ton. Hope you have a crane ready when you go to collect it  :blink:

Who's got the job of cutting it up  :doubt:  and when does the debate start of how much extra to cut to account for shrinkage   :coffee:

All I need now is a 3km deep pothole.

Seriously though, what a fantastic prize.
