    why "… without being a true MTB" by the way? My XC rig is fun. Probably the most used bike i have atm.

    Didn't Sam have some of those frames kicking around?

    Looks great. Better put some tape under that mudguard velcro and especially where the guards contact the seat stay bridge, if you care for the paint work. I have the same number and it's eaten the paint off of my Wolverine. I also put a zip tie on top to hold it in place, just so the bounce gets minimised.

    Omnium question how comes people carry their kids facing backwards?

    My guess is that if the kid sat the other way, because the platform is higher, you'd hit their head when turning the bars?

    Re storage, you might wanna borrow a bullit or similar and try. If the Yuba fits chances are the long John will.

    The tool you need is just to unbolt where the steering column connects to the disc that pulls the steering cable. It's two small hex bolts. The actual joint between the frame halves are like a quick release number, at least on mine.

    Edit: Oh yeah, and undo the brake lever for the front.

    I have the 600 front. My daughter is 7 as well and it's just coming to where she barely fits, but still goes in for rushed school runs etc. So you'll get some years out of it for sure.

    Taking apart is easy but I agree, not a thing you'll Wana do day by day.

    The bike is so so handy for parking and shopping, and due to full guards the best I have for rainy days as well, I struggle to think about selling it on.

    I'm coming up to ten years now. It's been good, overall, if it hadn't been for midlife crisis, depression and the likes, which has seen my social circle whittle down more and more. These days, while knowing lots of people in the greater cycling community etc, I feel increasing longing for the deep connections I had in my 20s even, before I left Germany, but that's all on the other side of the globe, literally. As you said, you just get on with it.
