Changed for my Sram XX1 crankset yesterday, upgraded from 34t to 36t and changed the rotors that was worn down to Ashima AiRotor. Gained around 200g so 8,71kg Cannondale Scalpel this morning
Tried to find every singletrack possible in the forrest north from my house. Some nice flat twisty ones and a lot of up or down. The forrest is a hill and there is a lot of tracks up and down. Thought of my friend Leif today as I climbed a technical singletrack, really nice when you climb standing with 36-42 gearing because it’s so step and you got grip and managed all the rocks and things in the way with traction 😀
Thought about a new thing today too. Earlier everyone used Continental Race King Supersonic tire. A big light tire with really thin sidewalls. Then people went for Racesport with better but still papersidewalls or Schwalbe Racing Ralph. My Panaracer Quasi-Moto isn’t as light as those and doesn’t have so thin sidewalls or even paperlike. It got a really soft rubber sidewalls that works really good with low pressure. Like on CX comparing a Tufo tubular with A. Dugast or FMB. Think about that next time you buy tires, feel the difference in the rubber.
Ended the ride (where I paused a bit in the middle) with a ride up to Slottsfjellet which is the most famous place in Tønsberg. A hill with a castle tower in the middle. This is how it looks from there:
and me trying to match my bike 😉
