40 for 50

09 Mar 2008 at 14:01 Filed Under:

Today marked my fiftieth ride of the year, marked with a hard work 41.8miles.

So what broke, I hear you ask? Well, Massive pinchflat to rim into rocks, front wheel seems more wobbly now, then .3miles after fixing the flat the tyre unseated and WANG, I the the bike away into more rocks. Fitting 26" tube around a 29er rim always carries the chance of messing up, despite checking.

Legs, they broke, I was 'chewing bar' for the last 5 miles.

The chainring and chain were making a nice sawing sound, but magically didn't unship at all - WOO!

Windy and wet again - people everywhere.

I still can't decide if 29ers are better than 26ers or not. I could do with less pinch flat though, but that's more down to the wind preventing me from gliding over the miles of stones.

41.8mls (12.2avg) | Dry, V Windy, 6°c, V Muddy.
