That’s me with Yellow shoes, socks and helmet riding a light Grammo Pako. Joined CK Jarlsberg this evening and rode with their beginner group because I knew the other group will ride fast in the technical parts.
So was an easy ride with some sprints and really felt the difference between a 27,5″ and 29er with tight corners. Is even quicker with the stiff Lucy fork that almost is to easy to lift over things. After about an hour we stopped after a rocky descend and I said that it was hard. That was the moment when the others saw that I was riding a stiff fork and didn’t have any damping. Started to talk about that it wasn’t Birkebeinerittet (Worlds biggest Marathon race here in Norway, mostly on gravelroads). Had some problem with keeping the first wheel when it was a lot of roots but otherwise I learned a lot today. In the beginning it was hard but in the end it felt pretty nice 😀 1,6 bar in the tires helped some too 😉
So 2h nice riding with just one moment I had to help a guy fixing his bike after a crash where he’s rear wheel got loose 😉
