Suspension looks a bit firm.
Suspension uses energy. And adds weight. And is another thing to go wrong and require servicing.
And vibrations, even with suspension, cause damage to components.
What 'suspension' is available in tyres and spokes is enough for most tours and causes most to slow where conditions are not conducive to faster progress.
There are alternative for those so inclined...
I swear whoever built this trail calculated the tightest turning circle possible and then decided we needed to try harder.
Oh a UniCycle!!!
I can see an over-shoot, cartwheel, over the edge into the water
Not me, @bigborett
Possibly walking track
Even the stealth conspired against me yesterday. . About 3kms from home.
Know how many local bike shops carry a 24 x 3 tube? Exactly none.
Great for the Cardio pushing a stealth?
or just trash it and ride home........
Sooo....about snake speed...that optimal speed at which you don't hear the mongrels until you have passed..
At the start of a ride it's about 26 k - just beyond the legal assist level. I'm wondering if that's the work of some evil genius in the dept of Frku ?
But once I've passed a few , the adrenaline is flowing and snake speed seems to slither up around the 30 k mark,
So I'm wondering, would my rides be more relaxing with earplugs?
What...? So, you can't hear yourself scream...?
Bony conduction of screams is amplified whilst wearing earplugs
Other noises aren't
You could have just said it echo's...
Here’s some advice PD-
“they are more scared of you...”
“it’s just sunning itself...”
“they only attack if provoked...”
“you can run faster than they can...”
Yeah, thought so. Didn’t make me feel any better when a Joe Blake was on the track recently either. It’s now labelled “Snake Track” by Sprog, the fear is real.
This time of year they're waking up - so both cranky and horny.
They're ANNOYED, not scared
Makes perfect sense now, I feel for the snake. If I woke up looking for a root, I would get annoyed if some prat pedalled past too.
Seen a shiny thing on the road during our morning gravel ride, didn't really want to stop and check it out as it was part way up a climb, but curiousity got the better of me.
Spun around, went back to pick it up and thought wouldn't it be funny if it was a 10mm socket.
Well swallow me, some poor carnt is gunna be scratching around in the back if his ute looking for this little fucker.....
Doesn't everybody wake-up cranky and horny(or is just me?)
Yeah, but not everyone bites ankles in response
You need to get out more Doc.
Deep reach as well. Score.
You think? I'm not the one talking about deep reach scores
After a week at Paynesville sailing / swimming +/- riding Mt Taylor on the cold days...I needed to get home for a rest!
