Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

Last Sunday on a group ride over the northern range. It was warm up ride for this Sunday where we’ll go over the northern range down to the coast and ride part of the coast road which is all short sharp hills. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191108/2b4a7e0b60b2d5bd865ff47732c678b9.jpg https://upl...

Post a picture from your latest ride

Yet another ride to the Ball (right of centre on the top of the hill) and getting closer to my time goal.

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

I suspect that would also entail a new front fork and I’d also have to check clearance on the rear swing arm - need to make sure that there’s not only tyre clearance but also allow a few mm for mud. Perhaps the 27.5 mid-point could fit? It's very unlikely that you'll be able to get a 29 or 27.5 in ...

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

One the other end a 26” with a 22 front and 32 rear is 17.68” and a 29” with a 34 and a 51 is 19.42”.

The range is pretty similar but it does mean moving to a 29er and not just changing your group set.

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

I’m not sure it’s be ideally suited to a 26”, for comparison a 26” with a 44 in front and 11 in the back would give you approx 103”. A 29er with a 34 and an 10 would yield around 99.5”.

I’d recommend demoing one I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

Wow that look absolutely horrible! Congratulations on making it. It was pretty brutal I have to admit - 36c in the forest section on the 2nd traditional Bedoin climb which just sucked the fun out of it and you go into a world of mental and physical hurt! Intrigued to hear your thoughts on a 1 x set...

C11 Titanium Elite for this evening. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191027/a547825708afb3555efe711c6dc5accd.jpg Looking good Ferg, I do love the additional crown. I always thought a C11 Makaira Chrono with the additional pushers would’ve been an amazing watch. It’s sad that CWL killed the line....

It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

Wow that look absolutely horrible! Congratulations on making it. Public holiday here for Divali so an early morning group trail ride, no pictures as I haven’t found a satisfactory way to carry my phone on the new bike in the trails then home and wash (we’re in the middle of rainy season although the...

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

Brilliant stuff James and well done on the serious amount of weight loss I got serious about biking again about two years ago. Lost a bit of weight and then realised that I could upgrade the bike. I sold a couple of watches and described the cost of the Canyon as 2.5 watches! Now riding a lot more ...

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

Great bike James, and congratulations on all those healthy, fun miles covered! PM me if ever you're cycling around the Peak District and I'll get my Giant into action! It's a little far from Trinidad but if I'm ever over and riding I'll PM you for sure. I'm aiming for a riding trip to North Carolin...

Re: It's been a while (rambling thoughts and MTB content)

Thanks for all the kind words guys, I really appriciate it, I'm always cautious about sharing as I see it as rather self serving. I'm aiming for a total of 2,000 miles this year (need to average 50 a week to get it done) as well as being solidly under 200lbs and not floating around 199 as I am now. ...
