Back up from Brighton. More on that shortly.
Want to read some books. Under the Banner of Heaven is next, by Jon Krakauer. I feel i can do that now, sit and concentrate on one thing i mean.
Also trying some new inner tubes. Yeah, dull, but 3 punctures in 5 rides after a year or so with less than you can count on the fingers of one hand? Something is up, and i think it is using a wide tyre on a wide rim thinning the tube out. The first 2 were odd sidewall pinches. Yup, a pinch but both snake bites marks on one side. Odd. I raised the pressure from 15 to 28psi then got a wire puncture (or perhaps flint) through the tyre at this last weekends race. Hmm. Going to look at a wtb downhill tube (26" - stretched to fit) or a welter weight maxxis 29er tube. We'll see.
If im lucky ill have the edge wheels prior to shenandoah that will change things again.
Meantime i shall be getting some massage on the guns and focusing.
