The other main iteration of this AMPeirce: 29+ hardtail. While I find riding our local mountain bike trails surprisingly good in ‘full fat’, this guise is that bit better. Especially when it comes to moving faster over things rocky.
Yesterday was a maiden ride out at Kalamunda, with some time to learn tyre pressures and adjust gears while enjoying a lighter, nippier response allowed by the lighter set-up (no Rohloff).
So much fun that no photos were taken, so some shots from this morning to illustrate instead.
The final addition that will make this bicycle complete is a Porcelain Rocket framebag. The front triangle has more bottle cage bosses than useful for just that purpose – and are there to secure the bag without as many straps as normal. Work this weekend limits an immediate repeat foray, though temptation is sorely there. Much more to come :-)
