    Great read!!! Had similar shock seal leak on Dempster ride in Canada. Got turned on to Shock Sox. They sell on many online sites. $T2eC16NHJF4FFkt8RW8JBSWbQqB-p!~~60_35.jpg Solved the damaged seal problem permanently. I hated not having front brakes worth a shit in city combat riding through Vancouver.
    Thanks for an entertaining trip report. Cheers

    Thanks everyone - I really appreciate all your kind words:)

    Those Shock Sox look the absolute dogs bollocks (for all the English!). I'm going to get the forks redone with Diamond Like Coating too:)

    Just finished making my Christmas presents[​IMG] By my calculations they come in at about £2500 each[​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To anyone that's read the report there is all sorts of stuff in these. Bottles negotiated for and bought from a beautiful warm cafe in Shangri La, sand from the Kasak desert where I saw the camels quietly pad between the houses, pebbles from outside St Basils in Red Square, seeds from plants struggling against all odds, horse hair that was hiding in the short grass at Son Kol lake, all sorts of spices passed to me by wrinkled dirty hands in sweaty markets, stones levered from the cliffs at Tiger Leaping gorge, green dust from stones by a landslide in Laos, all sorts of weird alien food ingredients from Chinese shops, black soil from the Russian wilderness, wispy plant seed heads that I watched bend to the breeze in Tibet, some poo pellets from the arse of an unknown animal that crossed my path sometime in the past, wood from a tree outside a hotel in Kyrgystan where I stood and felt the wind suddenly rise and announce an approaching storm, all topped off by some pebbles and prayer flags retrieved from the permafrost up at Everest base camp. Every colour brings back a memory, every line a moment in time. What a sad muppet[​IMG]

    A very merry Christmas to everyone, and here's to lots of good riding in 2018. Life is short. JFDI.
