Rained all yesterday, rained all day today. The weather that keeps me in my sofa normally but when you have a bike standing here that should be very fun and three good guys out riding motivation is there :)
Rode out to Vardås and the bike felt a bit faster than my Liteville, mostly because of I’ve now ridden that road before and wheren’t new. Perfect timing as I caught Joachim on the last uphill. Walked up the steps and last part and met Erik on the way. Waited a bit and Peder came so 4 riders, 2 with Trek Remedy :)
Rode a sketchy downhill, felt a bit strange with the new bike and no dropper post, and slippery. On the way up again Erik was to strong or something so his freehub broke and became a fixie. End of ride for him :( Went up to the top again and after some discussions between the locals We headed down another way, nice singletrack. Singletracks here and there up and down all evening afterwards and some really flowy and nice tracks. Slippery but fun and as usual I really like 27,5″ wheels. Like I said to Peder it’s maybe not the fastest but funniest. Became like my friend John who always like to push and for that a 27,5″ is fun.
Really flowy bike but I think I had a bit to little air in my fork today or it is because the bike feels a little to short so I’m close to the front wheel. Revelation worked really well and rear suspension felt more active than on the Fuel EX 29er I’ve tried before. So not the bike that stopped me.
A picture on the locals on the last top:
Flowy downhill from there where you could go fast and jump over rocks/roots, if you knew the track. :D
Then back home again in headwind and it came some waterdrops from the sky in the end. A slippery but fun afternoon with a really fun 13,6kg bike looking like this:
The Deore brakes worked flawless but 30 gears is to many ;) Strange with a bike where the only carbon fibre part is my beloved Tune Komm-Vor saddle ;)
