You don't actually need to ballast it, I think the bow looks high due to the shape of the tubes, it is actually a very level ride, you will have to try one think you will be very surprised, the bow is not that flighty.

Gray, I see you are in Southampton, drop me your email or mobile and come and try the Thunderbolt out, think you will be suitably impressed.

If Gray takes him up on the offer we'll get a good report.

Thanks Nick

I'm sitting here writing this annoyed with myself for not finding someone to come out with today as the weather is so nice! Ah well, maybe tomorrow!
