Switched to some TIMBUK IIs, the bike handles the trail centre stuff pretty well but I did find the limit of the front tyre today on a berm - no damage done and no other West Mids R'bers to laugh at my misfortune either :lol:


What is that brown stuff all over it??

A pic from a 50Km loop on Salisbury plain today (Sarcen Trail)

I've started to use the 410mm post and saddle off of my modern ride when I take this out so I get as much post in the frame as possible!

12-28 I think and 24/36/46. Extremes of gears are a bit of a compromise (I stay clear of large to large) but it works fine.
