Hard labour

Spent most of today clearing a new short trail near home, around 1.30 I thought I'd sit down for some lunch only to find I'd left it at home, that was a bit of a blow.
Just continued with the hard labour of trail clearing until about 2.30.
Dashed home had a bite to eat (too much really) then jumped on the MTB to go try out the trail.
As usual it was a bit of a disappointment, too narrow to get a good speed up, and a couple of quick steep climbs too hard to cycle, guess I'll just have to give it some more time.
After sampling the trail went down through Hunterston and met Jim for a chat on his way home.
Turned out he was the trials bike guy Graham and I saw on Sunday on our way back from Kelburn.
He was telling me the chap he was with ended up rolling his quad on a steep climb, no harm done though.

Local trails here.

Got the DH hose fitted, sorry inner tube, got to admit i did not realise just how thick they were, had a rough idea, but seeing one is a different matter.
had a problem getting one with a Presta valve, seems that Schraeder is more popular for DH, but i am not going to drill out my rim just to fit one

Lets hope it does the job for you, I believe there's an anti snake bite guard that can be fitted, don't know how good it is though.
