Well it’s been a few weeks since I was last out on my bike, but that’s about to change (hopefully). Since the last ride I’ve changed the grips (as the odi lockons had a rounded allen key bolt which meant that I couldn’t tighten one of them as much as really needed. The new ones are Fluro Lime which is nice 🙂 I’ve also played around with the fork\shock rebound settings a bit while bouncing around in the back garden, not sure how this will translate on the trail, but I understand a bit more how the suspension works at least.
Lastly I’ve swapped the front tyre over to a Maxxis Ignitor. The Larssens are shocking in anything other hardpacked dirt, so this should hopefully improve cornering. I didn’t have anything narrow enough to fit on the rear without causing clearance issues, so the Larssen will have to do for a bit longer.
Fingers crossed I’ll get out on the bike either tonight or tomorrow. Not sure where though, I quite fancy Shorne Wood or the surrounding area. It’ll be more of an exploratory ride in the hope of finding somewhere to stash my first cache 🙂
