Paid $250 for this custom title
Owing to circumstances beyond my control (work/family/covid), I hadn't hit the dirt for nearly two months despite having a shiny new bicycle.

This ride changed my life.

I haven’t been out for a couple of weekends due to shit weather and stuff on and I’m going spare. Really struggling without a regular dose of outdoors

Crashed out somewhere
The partners San Quentin arrived with the bike rack, pretty impressed with the frame/overall weight for the price, was surprised to get centrelock hubs. Just have to clean up the cables, put her lady saddle and her jet black pedals on. Will have to replace the POS dropper Lever, that'll snap in the first crash.

Got some 220mm hope rotors coming for the last for shits n giggles. Might get some tech 4 levers to pair with the v2 calipers.

The oneup grips are shit hot, best grip in long time after using ergons for a fair while.

Now that’s some sexy stripper pole action!

The dropper cable is a bit interesting. I had to take 200mm off the cable on my SQ3.

I thought I would start on the new build today but knew I had better have a good look at the forks I bought with only "500" kms on them. Well, judging by how clean the oil and foam rings looked, I think it was an over estimation. Still, a lowers service wouldn't hurt.

However, has I expected, the air shaft wasn't a pretty sight.

@Labcanary Does this qualify as a shit tonne? I couldn't get a good picture down the tube to show how much grease was still there. Enough on top of the shaft to work as a volume reducer.

Did something really really stupid
Day off today. I was told I’m disruptive for the school routine so was pretty much forced to hit the trails.

Started at Mundaring Weir Hotel and headed out to Kalamunda from there. Was foggy to begin with and then the sun came out. Trails were absolutely mint after rain yesterday.

24km and 500m vert.

Been about a month since I hit Kalamunda, can't wait to get out tomorrow. Will be some good dirt out there!

Is that Alchemy? Came off not long after that frigging wallride, still a bit wary on there!

Yeah, that’s the one. I was a bit worried given everything was damp and slippery.

I rode up a hill to an old gun emplacement. I haven't been here for years! The low quality of graffiti may be linked to the never of empty balloons scattered around.

Then I looked out over the ocean and watched for whales. I was not disappointed.
