    I did this from Rättvik to Smygehuk last year. 900k. The route was more challenging than I expected. Lots of short but steep hills, a good bit of (very) coarse gravel and only short bits of asphalt to rest on. I was on a gravel bike with quite limited room for tyres so I was riding standing up quite alot lol. Dunno what have been done route wise this time but there was room for improvement. Mostly very nice tho. Considering doing the whole thing this year but I'm unsure if I'll be able to as it would be quite an undertaking time wise.

    Alright, thanks for helping! I’ll try again with the 27,2.

    Thank you :) It was quite a struggle. I would obv prefer it being 27,2. Might try it again. The decal says its SLX. It doesnt look like its been repainted but I’m no expert. Could ofc still have been changed at some point but it seems unlikely…

    So… I managed to extract the very stuck seatpost from my wifes Corsa extra. The extracted post was 27,2 mm. Now, I tried putting in a new 27,2 post but I deemed it pretty much impossible. The old one must have been put in there with quite some force… No wonder it got stuck. Anyway, Google suggests Columbus SLX is usually 27,0 mm. Is this correct? My caliper says closer to 26,8.

    While waiting (patiently!) for the last of the Kyrgyzstan pictures, have a few from Gotland instead :) Went there over the weekend. Awesome place to ride your bike, I've been visiting this island over the summers since I was a kid so I know it pretty well, the landscape still amaze me every time. Just a few iphone snaps:
