The Sheepman cometh - 23:33
Sheepman? (full size)
Sure I know people use the large amount of space available on their cars to
advertise sometimes, I do however wonder if this man really wants to advertise
his super hero name so blatantly....
The fun of being back on the steel hardtail - 17:29
So I stayed up fairly late last night building up the steel hardtail. I had
taken the frame and the alloy hardtail to the bike shop to have new headset
cups fitted and the fork swapped over. I then did the rest of the build last
This morning I drove out to sparrow hill to ride the single track loop there
with Paul C, Ben M, Angus H, Nigel H, Adair F, and a friend of Adair's. The
steel hard tail was a joy to ride again. I absolutely loved it. The smooth
(muted I suppose) feel over bumps compared to the alloy hardtail. The handling
of the bike over all. Damn I love this bike.
Anyway I have added some photos of the fully assembled bike (in the shed,
before the ride this morning at home, post ride with dust, and with the new
Bendy Bender figure mounted). The photos were added to the
set I posted on Wednesday
of the painted frame.
I am really looking forward to putting the KM in on this bike again now.
