Well this was sooo close for getting the chop. I'd my eye on the new Cotic Solaris and the KK was going to help fund it. Once again a Kona has got its claws into me. I used it over the weekend at 10 under the Ben and I reckon it helped me no end. I've now decided to keep it and continue with weight weenieing. I committed the cardinal sin of fitting bar ends to risers :oops: but the race number covered it up rather nicely :) , The forks seems to have blown a seal so a rebuild is on the cards. Whilst I'm at it I may as well strip the full bike to itemise the weights. I also think I'll try some kind off tubeless set up.

If you see any boat anchors jumping out post away :)

Grips look massive but I guess you like ergo sets?

I've been eyeing up some new ones, you can go very light for not much ££ at all.

I've got on well with the ergo ones but will be changing these out. I stuck them on for a bit of comfort, the old ones were miserable. I've got 2 pairs of ESI silicon grips waiting to go on other bikes. These have been getting very good write ups in the comfort and weight stakes. All being well a piar will be going on this too :)
