New legal tires

After my front CX tubular lost the grip of some thread last tuesday it was time for new tires. The thread seems to start to come loose from the tire too. Wanted a all round tire as I’m going to ride some CX but also winter training on it and only got one wheelset. Trying a new tire and a new brand.

Specialized Tracer 33mm:

414g and 418g. Feels pretty good. Will start to glue them before I go to bed so I can try them on wednesday which seems to be the only day of riding for me this week.

Last ride this week

Was out riding today too but only for a couple of hours which you can see on Strava. Super weather, nice trails and a really tires body made it slow and hard.

Now I am at a nice guy Jesper outside Stockholm in Sweden until tomorrow.

Was super weather around 20° C in Norway and here it’s raining. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow

Trek demo day

Was an opportunity to try some new 2015 Trek bikes here in Kristiansand and some 2014. We where there all day so a long day in the saddle today too. First bike I tried was a Fuel ex 9.8 in my size. A xcbike with 120mm damping

Wasn’t as fun as my bike which I rode a couple of rounds before I got my hands on the best trailbike I’ve tried. It felt better then my Remedy 27,5″ even thou it have 29″ wheels. Climbed like a dream, descended like a dream and was fast in between. The bike that made me start thinking of 29er. Trek Remedy 9 29 2015

SRAM Roam wheels, SRAM X1 and a Pike RC as a standard is super :)

First day of riding in south Norway

Have traveled to Kriatiansand for a weekend with a friend and some great riding. A lot of small technical singletracks today and up on two ”rocky mountains”. One of us had a bike that suited

Nice view with the sea. Down for ice cream and enjoying the sunny town and then up on another place with another view

Had a hard time today but my Remedy was working great. Fun with technical trails instead of the fast ones at home. A bit over 3h today and we’ll see how long it will be tomorrow. Then we are going to try some new Trek bikes too.

light tubes

Normally when you buy a bike it comes with some cheap heavy tubes. But not Trek Remedy. On my Remedy 9 I got Maxxis Super Thin tubes, feels a bit wrong on a AM bike but seems working well ;)

So around 140g for a 27,5″ tube for 1,9-2,35″ tires. Maxxis WelterWeight tubes are around 190g for comparsion.

But the best would be to stans the tires instead of using tubes.

Searching: A place to stay over in Stockholm sunday to monday

Any nice person reading my blog that got a bed or sofa with a place for me sunday to monday in Stockholm? A short visit and would be nice to meet a nice people instead of staying alone on some hotel or something.
