not a bike pic but i went mountain biking with a work colleague yesterday, to some trails up in the hills. was pretty fun. uphills suck balls, but downhills flowing fast through berms and stuff was real fun. different experience for me, took a bit of getting used to how you can just monster truck the shit out of rocks and stuff on an mtb
this year i am going to have sex and it will be awesome

I managed to get a couple of rides in before going away last week, sherwood pines & Cannock for the first time.

Cannock highlighted an issue with the forks which I initially thought was a loose headset, I've got a rattling when the fork is under very light load & some slight movement on the stansion which is making me think the bushings are a little worn. Got my eyes on a lightly used set of lowers so I can just swap out the lowers & see if that solves it.

You may want to route the front hose inside the fork leg. It offers better strike protection and it's "proper" so you won't be harassed by the PinkBike crowd.

I'm not a fan of Orange frames, but that thing looks pretty good. For some reason, I think I'd like it even better if the front triangle were pink, too.

Thanks dude, didn't even think about the cable routing,I'll rectify that.

Yeah, loved that thing as soon as I saw it.  The brake / shift setup is super weird and awesome.

Corsica is a beautiful place but sucks for cycle touring. Mountain range after mountain range in 28 degree heat. Going to Sardinia tomorrow though.

She's a beaut.

I rode Cannock again this morning. Was only a quick ride so only did follow the dog. Love the last few sections, fast and flowing with some drops which really suits the alpine 160.

what frame is that brule? feather???

its been like 70+ degrees the past week (lol wut new england?) so I've finally gotten back riding proper. nice to be back at it. i feel so good on my bike this year too. very pumped on my mileage from last yr and how my physiology has changed.

from yesterdays ride:


I've also been somewhat successfully been piecing together everything for a randonneur/adventure bike to accompany my road bike so i can stop brutalizing myself riding the china crabonz offroad and on my longass rides. gonna be something like a fast as fuck version of trail-boss' Faildale. I'm so stoked for it and hopefully ill have some pics for y'all soon. someone give me ideas of how to get it painted.

It's an 853 Brian Rourke, eBay bargain.

Was hoping to get out for a long one tomorrow but it's absolutely hammering it down.

It's 56 x 56. Not sure if it was a custom, very possible due to the sloping top tube, they're usually level. Yep, Fabric saddle, it's middle width, middle padding, feels great and a good price too.

Ultegra is like one of those weird girls who is sexy in a way you can't really figure out.
