I know that may be somewhat difficult to believe, but I went out on the 456 again tonight. I did the same route as Sunday but with the added bonus of darkness. I think this was my first proper off-road night ride where I didn’t actually break anything since last winter. I did crash into a tree though so it wasn’t all good.
The 456 was even better to ride tonight. It might benefit from a seatpost with some layback, but for the shortish rides I tend to do on it, it’ll be fine for the moment.
Update: I got back just in time, it’s pouring with rain again now.
