Okay. Well, I’m 50:50 on that because there’s a lot going on in my life and my time is not my own, but a noodle around Bedfordshire’s inferior neighbour would be grand : )
Enjoy your drink and I hope you sort your ehhh locked link liplock kink thing.
Didn’t come back to you on these but the mudguard clearance issue might be a deciding factor. Can you tell me what size tire (and guards) you were trying to accommodate? Cheers.
Is the Hertfordshire loop plan still a plan? Can you post the Komoot route pliz?
Did the 105 wheel go?
Now looking at that most srsly, damn. (thanks).
Top: Sceptical, hopeful, checking the tires every hour. I don’t think I looked in on my newborn kids this often : /
Bottom: Trying to find a knobbly tire smaller than 35c that can be tblss’d
Hmm. Just mounted tubeless-ready tires to some tubeless-compatible rims and it was way too easy compared to the first time I tried it, so I am [Fry meme], for now.
(A noodle around the block seemed okay tho.)
Just responding to say I read this and I understand it must be a brain bender to overcome that sense of not trusting your foot to hit the ‘right’ spot every time - or maybe equating imbalance with impending emergency dentistry. Either way, time and practice is going to make that better, so your plan to put the 30mins sessions in is solid.
One of the great things about concave on a deck (and for middle agers like me - the kicknose!) is the way you get positive feedback on heel and toe placement. Maybe think of other cues too - use 1 domehead bolt on the front truck as a ‘home key’? (Slalom skaters will often use a mount on top of the deck to get foot placement dialled and foot retention sorted).
I was trying to think of something that’s been an equivalent hurdle for me and the only thing I could think of was going clipless. Those first couple of goes where you panic because you can’t unclip ‘in time’ (stacking it in a busy Croydon st the first time I did a longer ride) when there’s actually loads of time … and later you realise you just do it unconsciously and wtf was that all about?
Interested in the TRPs pending piczzzz
