Mountain Biking Zanes Blog

Postby inzane on Thu 10/Sep/09 1:02pm

This is a thread that I will post any of my Blog updates, rather than having each one in its own thread.

My blog is over here http://mountainbikingzane.wordpress.com/ and will generally be me rambling on about rides I have done and biking gear I am using. I like to try and get some good photos of the rides I do and and post them up.

Cheers

Zane

p.s. the latest post is just a bit of a catchup on what I have been up to since the previous post. Not anything terribly exciting...

Borrowed that one from Percy :lol:

Croesus is an awesome track. While it might look a little scary from the profile and description in the K. Bros book it is a super fun track for anyone with an good intermediate mountain bike skill level!! People will definitely have more fun riding this track on a 5 or 6 inch travel trail bike than on a race hardtail tho!! ;)

Even more updates. I have been playing around with a couple of Queens :blink:

I am trying out a new pair of Continental Rubber Queens, tubeless in 2.4 folding variety. I was also trying setting them up tubeless just using tape from the hardware store. :paranoid:
