Went for another spin on the Craftworks tonight. Having managed to sort the suspension out a bit more, the bike is coming to life. It still bobs a bit on climbing, but thats to be expected, however it’s a lot more plush on the rougher stuff now. There is still an imbalance between the performance of the front end (2001 Marzocchi Z1 Drop-Off) and the rear end (2003 Fox Vanilla RC), but thats nothing that can’t be solved with the aid of a credit card.

Work is manic at the moment, but I only have two more days in the office, then I have just over a week off. I can hardly wait.
