    Ali frame & 3×9 😯

    it wears sids sometimes too

    I race a handfull of events on it over the year

    only thing holding me back is my legs 😉

    It’s all in the legs and your technique.

    might be cos i’m used to 29ers now, but 26ers look pretty odd now, like the frame is to much for the wheels.

    Don’t disagree, 29ers just look more normal now!

    No, they really don’t.

    Care to explain what is going on with that front brake hose Chef? 😀

    Njee that’s quite lovely; I thought you were a Spesh man though, or did I just invent that in my head?

    EDIT: Cut grass, weatherproof gate and get paint of the brickwork.

    Not sure bigger wheels would make me faster, but a mask and snorkel might help next time!

    Had Epics in 2007/08/09, but Treks since! Both great. That Trek has been awesome, being replaced with a 29er Superfly hardtail though! Need to sell all the parts if anything is of interest?!

    Me? 36t ring, 11-36.

    The front brake is on the left, Euro style, so having it like that just makes the run smoother.
