Bike Trip

Early summer and I’m tripping through electronic cigarette drops the bluebells on Hebden Bridge trails.

Here’s the latest video cast with thoughts on 29ers, the great British weather, some Hebden Bridge mountain biking and some fine riding clothes form Mavic and Royal Racing.

Feeling ‘El Guapo’

It’s time to get frisky. The sun is shining and spring is coming to the Hebden Bridge trails.

Here’s the latest on my main bike, the Titus ‘El Guapo’. I’ve got a great build including the excellent 2012 Marzocchi RC3 Evo Ti fork, a very handy 2 degree Slackset from On One and the incomparable Cane Creek Double Barrel Air shock.

The rest of the build is: Hope Hoops with Mavic EX721 rims, Hope Race M4 brakes, Chromag bars and seat, Continental Baron 2.3 tyres in Black Chilli compound, FSA Gravity Light cranks, DMR Vault pedals.

Also on You Tube if you prefer.

Ice Cast

Here’s the latest news from Great Rock. I was going to shoot a riding video out my local muddy trails, as a way to illustrate how I’m looking forward to heading off to all the foreign destinations that I’ll be working in this year. But everything was covered in freezing rain making Calderdale pretty much unrideable. Instead I got Victor, our new dog, to do an introduction, then previewed the foreign trips and finished with some product reviews.

Included are Endura MT500 jacket, On One winter soft shell, Teko socks, Gore Oxygen bib 3/4, Continental 2.4 Rubber Queens, Maxxis Beaver 29, plus previews of other kit that will be getting used and then reviewed soon.
