Post night shift XC ride as calf still a bit sore. It was very hot n humid.



Drax wasn’t allowed out as he’s cut one of his pads so he’s having a monumental sulk that I went out without him.

Feckin, fecking, tubeless fail tonight. A few rides ago my rear Michelin got a flint cut on the edge of the tread. I had to put two anchovies to seal it but it was holding, until tonights night ride with my mates (first time in ages) and out pop the anchovies. Had to replug it three times to get home. Now sitting at home with a cider I should be having at the pub and have just ordered a new minion SS as a replacement.

Here's a photo of the bike whilst I was limping home.

Quick blast round a very powdery Friston today with Mrs M (on Lady Payne, her Levo) and Drax. Got utterly beasted on the climbs and am properly knackered now. We only did 10 miles but it feels like I've turned my lungs inside out.

Next week, especially Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, forecast to be a bit more than "a little bit warm" :o

Proper hot out there today. It’s ok when your moving but once you stop you get soaked

Well that was all rather exciting. Mrs M’s Levo had some gear issues that required my attention so after a bit of poke n hope and twiddling the screws of doom (it was a loose mounting bolt). I took it for a test ride, obviously as it was her bike I took it easy…………. Troy Lee MIPS lid worked very well.

I suspect I may well be having a “strongly worded listening too” or “discussion without tea and biscuits” when she gets home.😂

The Levo has an Assegai on the front, its got HUGE knobbles, so I was pushing it to see how much grip it had. The Curtis has a Rekon on the front so has a fair bit less bite. I'd had a few front drifts and hadn't backed off (as usual, I'd ignored the warnings). It properly let go on a steep off camber right hander so I was ejected over the front and down the bank. It was a combo of me taking the piss/Friston powder/Levo weight. Think my lid might need replacing.
