Amazing scenery. Thanks for taking the time to post pictures.
Bike's pretty cool too.


Thanks! 8)

The weather has been incredible out here to be honest, I only moved from the mainland 15 months ago so I've yet to experience the island at its worst!

Harris is properly beautiful though, and when the sun's out the beaches are second-to-none. The Harris Eagle Observatory and track is maintained by the Trust, and they obviously are keeping on top of things as there are two new wooden bridges that have been installed this last year to make things easier! At the start of the route I came round a corner to be confronted with eight assorted ginger and black Highland cattle just standing there looking bemused on the track which made progress a little 'interesting'... especially as their horns were enormous! :shock:

A couple of the descents were a proper test for a rigid bike though, the forks were demonstrating huge fore-and-aft movement, especially with the added force of applying brakes trying to decelerate a 15 stone man! :oops:

That aside, it's an amazing bike.... with the tubeless tyres being able to run lower than I would normally risk pressures combined with the comfort of the titanium frame and forks it was like riding on a magic carpet! :lol:

This is for sale, happy to split and just do frame and fork option, or any combination that suits! :wink:

Fortunately, I am certain I can't afford this. Or even a bit of it.

Weather has been awful here the last couple of days, and after taking some fresh photos the other day for prospective new owners, the only bits left on the Sheep that irked me a little were the skewers. I've repainted the levers already, but I managed to scrape some of that paint off the rear one on its last outing, so decided to do something about it!

So out came the dremel, sanded and polished back the faces of the levers and the centres! Now at least if they ever get scratched again, it won't show! Also diid the clamp on the rear to match while I was at it.... :facepalm:

Och well, it kept me amused for a wee while at least if nothing else! :lol:
