Weather was just about right, rain mostly stayed off, but Blairadam was muddier than Muddy Waters making mud pies in a mud bath while holidaying at Mud Springs Colorado.

Mikee knew beforehand he'd be the only one to clear the sketchy descent

Mikee pontificating, no doubt Specialized was mentioned...

Velo missed out on the bombhole shenanigans as his rear wheel had imploded by then...

I was going to type something but the huge photo dump says it all 8)

Drive side bearings have been eaten on my rear wheel possibly by voracious gremlins. I need better gremlin seals but what the heck it was a great ride and the tree branch I rammed has thankfully not punctured my ribs :lol:

I vote we get a Lommonds run in soon :wink:

yup thats daves LTS DH ,i agreed to buy it on saturday afternoon
so 5 hours of fettling later it was ready for a shakedown run this morning
hell fire it s good ,still gota sort out the front chainring/device/tripple ring mech bit as the chain drops off occasionaly but apart from that its great
climbs ,descends nimble and rides over anything

ZZ's moho is a really nice bike , just sort the wee issues out and thats gonna be a stunner
had a wee pootle in it spdf's and high seat post prevented serious testing tho , like it ,a lot

do i look about 4'6" tall in some of those pics ?

Looked like a great day - annoyed I couldn't make it.

Zigzag you make that moho look like a kids bike, how much post is actually in the frame? :)

Ach I know - Sorry Gazz, I'll try harder next time.

TK - seatpost is right on the limit line, funny though pretty sure it's a M frame, although a large isn't all that much bigger. Fits me reasonably well, and I don't mind if a frame is a tad on the small side.

mikee's ex-tnega LTS was a revelation. Looked a bit chopper like, but didn't feel it, really tight too. Totally spot on, did not feel it's age at all - nothing needed changing.
