Fitted a set of SR Suntour's SwingShock fork to the black prototype this weekend, ahead of another week of testing by Mr. Craven. Just rode it round the car park, it feels a little different to the MB fork - changed the geometry slightly (there's only an inch of travel), but with the fork sag there's little change to the the steering. Main thing so far; the forks could be used with the MB frame if anyone wanted to. More soon - laters!

There's a concept floating about in sporting circles that tries to explain - usually to those not directly involved - what drives people who regularly participate in endurance/adventure sports and why they're such glutons for pain and punishment. Ask any of these sports people 'Why?!' and they'll probably say, 'because it's fun!'... Really?! Well, you see, there are 3 types of fun; type 1, type 2 and type 3.
Type 1 Fun: That's everyday fun, fun while you're doing it. A laugh.
Type 2 Fun: This isn't necessarily fun while you're doing it, but it's fun afterwards when you're looking back on things. You might question your sanity during the event, but that feeling passes as soon as your done and 'it was fun!'
Type 3 Fun: This is never fun for you. Not even a few months later when you are telling the tale, you'll hate it. It's only ever fun for the people who weren't there!

+ Beautiful morning Sky
+ Met up with an old friend and had a good chat
- Punctured :(
Back on my training bike as the Milk Bike commute bike is out on test at the moment. My training bike is a nice bike. In fact it's my old race bike from the early 90's however it feels really fragile now for my daily commute verses the Milk Bike. I'm having to remember to charge batteries every day, check the chain for oil, brake a lot earlier as the brakes are not as good due to the dirty roads and finally the skinny tyres that this morning let me down. I don't like puncturing at the best of times but on my commute it always feels like a real pain... On the milk bike I have not had a single puncture yet in 500 miles. Been back on the training bike for 3 days and had my first puncture already.
Can't wait to have my Milk Bike back.
