    Winch where was that filmed? It looks great fun.

    Disappointing trail-recognition skills there. 🙄

    Well, it has arrived (after I fetched it).

    Big shout to Planet X, great customer service this morning. Swapped the frame, no quibble. Gave me a new headset FOC, and I was back on my way home at 9.35.

    My local bike shop (Pedal Power in Loughborough) also helped me out by pressing the headset within an hour on a Saturday, cheers to them.

    The build took three hours, including a bit of filing out of the dropouts, but I knew I was going to have to do that anyway. Baptism of fire in the peaks tomorrow!

    I will post a pic when:

    I have a free minute and am not actually riding the bike

    I can figure out how to put a picture on here.

    Cheers to all of you for keeping my spirits up over the last few days. Now I’ve just got to make it up to my wife after being a grumpy bastard for the last two and a half days.

    Need a picture after all of this! Glad it’s all sorted though chap

    That’s good news DannyH, I bet your gonna have a good ride tomorrow!

    I want to see a picture now, as I haven’t seen any of the painted evo2’s….

    After all of the ‘challenges’ I feel like commissioning an oil painting of it, let alone a photo!

    Today saw the blooding of the evo in the peaks. Down such illustrious descents as Hagg Farm, Blackley Hey and Lockerbrook. I am pleased to say the bike was brilliant, me, less so after three weeks out of the saddle. However, fitness woes aside, the bike handled magnificently on the fast and rocky stuff. The ‘steel feel’ Is definitely there after riding alu hardtails for the last seven and a half years, in fact, if the 456 is meant to be harsh, I am glad I got it as anything else may have been a bit noodly for me. I think on one getting rid of the big central pipe joining the seat stays to the seat tube may have livened things up.

    If someone can tell me how to put pictures taken on an iPad onto here, then I’ll let you have a peek…….

    The slack head angle didn’t cause me any problems climbing, mainly because I am so slow on the climbs, it makes no difference to me. But it did let me bulldozer the front into some fairly hefty rocks when my manualling skills let me down a couple of times, and it didn’t throw me out of the front door. I actually probably ended up riding Lockerbrook almost as quick as I ever have, but on a brand new bike I am supposed to be getting used to!

    Chuffed to bits.

    dannyh – I think this page tells you what you need to know regarding uploading to flickr.

    http://ipadinsight.com/ios-6/ios-6-and-ipad-image-uploads-working-nicely/

    From there you just copy and paste the bb code into your post.

    I genuinely cannot do this. I think i have uploaded to flickr, but what is a bb code?

    Do i use the ‘IMG’ thingy at the top of the post?

    Please don’t laugh, I’m good at some things, honest.

    Go to flickr. CLick on your picture. At the bottom right is a funny square and arrow logo. Click it. You can choose ‘BB code’ (Bulletin board), copy that code.
    Come back to STW and simply paste it in the reply box.
    Click ‘Send Post’ and be in teh awesomeness of tech.

    I’ve tried this, but it doesn’t seem to work. Plus I don’t want my email address to appear in the link. But can’t work out how to change it. Things like this scare me, I never know what I am doing, or what risks I am running!

    My mum is more social media literate than me. And she’s nearly seventy.

    Your email address won’t appear in the link…? Unless you have your email address as your flickr name…?

    Let’s see if this works……..

    OK Danny, when you get the pop up box there are two round buttons at the bottom – make sure you tick the bb code one, not the HTML that you have at the moment.

    How’s that?

    NB disclaimer for STW. I know the grass needed mowing and that the barbecue will rust if I leave it out!

    Matt.

    Does this mean you can access my photos on Flickr now?

    Please forgive my ignorance.

    I can see your two pictures, on your Flickr account, that are public.
    I can, if I wanted, download them.
    But that *could* be changed, if you so wanted.

    Well, here are the other two photos I’ve taken.

    I think it looks quite fetching in the red!
