    I'm guessing stuck in some game addiction or Witcher III type quality?
    No just haven't been very interested in the bike TBH, long miserable winter hasn't helped either

        • Took a trip over to the Forest of Dean on Saturday, first time out with the new Hero4 and Zhiyun gimbal setup. You'll have to excuse the fact the gimbal is tracking to the right slightly as I mounted it slightly off vertical by accident.

          I also then went back across a bit further West today to the Black Mountains Cycle Centre which was an absolute blast, still encoding/uploading the footage from that so you'll have to bear with me, but for now here's a couple of pictures I took at the top...

            • It really could not have been better, both FoD and Black Mountains were in full dust production mode and running super fast!

              I cannot rate the trails at BMCC highly enough, even the technical sections flow nicely if you hit them right, it's not just random obstacles so they can slap a black grading on it.

              Cranked up the GoPro to full 4K and dropped from 60fps to 30fps for yesterday's footage and the results are like night and day. So much sharper, and the sense of speed seems to be better at 30fps. I also sorted out the gimbal alignment so it's pointing straight forwards on this one!

              • Full Spring Service, with some chaz endorsed VPP filth removal. Trying to isolate clicking noise which turned out to be the pedal axle!

                  • corrrrrrr VPP grease purge endorsed. How did you solve the clicking coiler, I've got a click too and also running nanos.

                    Also officially out of even bad excuses to not ride bike, think this weekend could hold a ride!

                    • The solution to me clicking nanotechs,........................................ ...... was to remove the red pair, and fit the grey pair

                      (i'd earlier removed the grey pair as the axle didn't spin as free as the red pair) but click free, so i'm going to take apart the red pair and regrease/remove any play.

                      AND

                      get out on your bike, its an absolute dust bowl scorcher out at the moment!

                      • Spent the day at Cwmcarn yesterday, it was my second time riding the DH trails there but my first time since they rebuilt half the course to host the first round of the 2018 British Downhill Series!

                        Only managed to film a couple of runs because the first time down with the camera I left the lens cap on...

                        Anyway, here's a run down the gnarly part of the DH course, I'm still editing together the insane jump run which comes after the fireroad.
