I remember the story about the UK DH team bitd taking a tub of mud abroad with them, and smearing it over their Hope pads before each race - apparently they just didn't work as well without it :lol:

yes indeed, fruits of labours should be enjoyed :) some of the bikes here dont even see dirt :facepalm: such a shame in my opinion , bikes are for riding not collecting and hanging on the wall. :roll:

I have heard about the british mud being excellent for disc brake bed in, and think there could be some sort of marketing gap there to fill :idea:

I did. It's that famous cotswold plasticine mud. No brick fragments like the OPs pics! Wattle and daub.
