Had a good day out today
Took two sons up to London and met up with other son who is away at University. Took the boat and the cable car, the sun was out,nice lunch, saw the BMX boys on the half pipe and some quick DMR riders on the pump track with Olly Wilkins still being quick with a gammy leg and manualling the rollers and doubling the jumps. Then watched a bit of Arsenal beating Liverpool in a London Pub.
On the train home realised that I am really not very interested in bikes any more. All shiny new stuff seems the same and they seem to be answering questions I am not asking. Fancy a fatbike and show confirmed this but would be rubbish for what I do and should just hire/borrow one. Was not always like this, remember seeing lots of weird stuff and picking up a carbon fibre Scott hardtail frame and realising it weighed nothing but that was probably six or seven years ago and not a lot seems to have changed since. Now have dropper posts and tubeless. That seems to be about it as far as relevant progress for me goes.
Scott had a stand and despite sponsoring Brendog had very limited MTB presence.
But Karma prevails. Having these bad thoughts the trains were all messed up on the way home and when I eventually got to go out with a fantastic moon, my helmet light wasn't working and then I sliced a tyre and had to walk home.
Still ride all the time but no longer interested in kit. Same thing happened with cars about ten years ago.
No good reason for sharing but doesn't stop other people posting!
