    Very nice Moots ! Super fun on hardpack gravel with those tires, probably quite a challenge if the gravelroad gets a bit rougher.

  9. Wife asks : Have you bought a pig in a poke ?

    In Norway it is a cat in a sack you buy if you are scammed, so that is what she said when I came home with yet another bike the other night.

    It was a revelation all those years ago, I had not expected a film dealing with those issues in such a manner. Would love to watch it again now and see how I view it differently now (at 57).

    I bough a 2 year subscription to the German "Tour" Magazine and got a Vaude Gravit 15+3 for free. Great commuting backpack with room enough for some light shopping on the way home.

    Bought this Norwegian branded CX-bike today. Great for gravelgrinding but I also consider using it for next years Paris-Brest with 30 mm slicks. My hands seems to find it harder and harder to shift...

    Just a guess: Japanesemade frame for the Swedish market. I bought a Mangalloy Nishiki from Sweden in the beginning of the eighties. Nothing special but a solid good ride that will last forever.
