20th May 2017

I though it would be a good idea to go for a long ride on the FatBike (as I have entered a 100 mile off road ride in July), I decided to have a repeat performance of the Ridgeway-Fosseway ride that I used for traing for Paris-Roubaix.

I must say it worked out rather well πŸ™‚

It was a very warm sunny start and I enjoyed the Ridgeway then the forecast rain showers started and the wind picked up (quite an unhealthy headwind), The New Maxis Mammoth tyres worked a treat πŸ™‚

Worked from home today…

After yesterdays tubeless tyre shinanigans, I lowered the pressure to 60 psi, and both tyres stayed up, perhaps my issue has been to high pressure?

18th May 2017

Worked from home today…

Managed to get out for a lunchtime ride, and had another series of Tubless tyre issues…I had a puncture that the sealant did’t seal πŸ™ I had a few stops to re-inflate and made it back home…

I have added some more sealant, and will see how/if the tyre seals, but so far I am less than impressed!

I managed to fit the new tyres to the FatBike and greased/adjusted the wheel bearings, they seem a little less graunchy now πŸ™‚
