First ride on my lovely Clockwork was an absolute blast and how much faster are bar ends and toeclips (confirmed risers and flatties user :wink: ) on the uphills at least. Just got back from the local woods and propped Clementine II next to the cooker so that I can admire her while getting the tea but I can smell something bad . . . my lovely butterscotch Psychos are covered in rather well-camouflaged dog poo :x.

Never thought I'd worry about a bit of dirt on an mtb (my other rides are held together with the stuff).

Just as long as you haven't got it all over the kitchen floor !

Pressuring washing removes the sight and smell with ease BTW.

T.H.E full length under fork crown guards rule. if you know the 3in deep surface water on the mountain tops all winter long then you'll know where I'm coming from :)

Wear shades! You can get some nasty infections from poo in the old eyes...
