Back in October I convinced the other half to come out with me on the bikes - one issue - she has no bike.
I have a Ghost Se which she can ride as I ordered it deliberately small as a semi xc/jumpable bike for the local trails, so I got he chance to indulge in something myself.
I had a notion for an LTS, but then this cropped up, albeit without the tyres, which were totally shot.
and alongside the Ghost
I swapped the turbotrainer wheel on, and threw my Crank Bros pedals on for a run, you can see the lovely weave in this one:
the first thing to change was the pads, which I swapped out for Goodridge pads, and bought the mrs some red discs for the Ghost:
I really didnt like the Rigida wheelset, which I felt wasnt in keeping, so bought some Mavic Crossrides, and floating rotors:
I fitted an XT Cassette and some anodised rotor bolts too
Then the woman bought me some carbon and ti for my Birthday
I added some Ritchey Grips
The Seatclamp seemed a bit crude so I bought this:
One thing that niggled me were the Judy Airs - so off they came, and out came the big guns, Marzocchi All Mountain 150s
Get Busy Time:
I love it to bits - Its sat beside me in the spare room propped up against the TV
Today I bought some XT shifters, an XT Shadow Rear mech, some Blue Jockeys, and Blue jockey wheel bolts.
