- Dyfi 2014
I’ll be doing it on the Soul again. This time with a few lessons learnt –
Smaller/lighter backpack (maybe even a waterbottle)
Bigger volume rear tyre
Dont rag it down the hills and face a punctured tubeless tyre
Time is made on the uphills (some are 20mins long!)
Take whatever I can to not get cramp! 1×10 wont help 😯
Best event I have done. Be quick, it sells out v.fast!Posted 4 years agochrisdwSubscriber
Its mostly about comfort than gears.
Things I wish I had:
Dropper post. Lots of fairly steep descents and it gets VERY tiresome stopping and putting your post down.
Bigger volume tyres that weren’t Nobby Nics. No grip and puncture a lot when at lower pressures.
I did it on 1×10 last year and was fine. On my yellow mmmBop!Posted 4 years agohughjenginMember
Yep, successful entry permitting I will be there again. For me, hanging on and chancing my luck on the downhills is way more preferable than grunting a 30lb 140mm travel trail bike up the endless fireroad climbs, therefore 29er hardtail again. For a short one its quite lumpy !Posted 4 years ago
