I arrived back from the Congo on Thursday, and as I left my mounbtain bike there to ride when I return I had a great excuse for a new MTB.

I Spent much of the last 9 weeks in the Congo planning the replacement bike.

 

I collected the remaining parcles at the Post office on Friday

That is my favorite toy. It is the air supply for the 120db Zound air horn. I meet many people because of it as I have to go back and apologise for scarying them half to death.

99% of people also have Kinesis frames, they just pay more for them and it is called something that sounds Italian

 

Blerrie mooi fiets by the way

Schweet ride. How was its first ride?

Good, we met at 5am and straight into Hanlip forest to climb up jeep track, road was rough and I felt every bump as we winched ourselfs up the mountain for 55 minutes without a break. I though it was going to be rough coming down but the shocks did their job perfectly, and I almost stayed with Mark ,who at 110kg decends like a devil.

Checked the tyres, at 3.5 bar are too hard. Tomorrow they will be at 2.2bar.
