The Unit now has a replacement rear tyre fitted after speedy service from Merlin. Strangely the tube which lasted the 4 mile ride home after ripping the sidewall managed to acquire a puncture while the bike was sat out the back, so I ended up refitting everything twice. The bike looks slightly odd now with a thin patina of mud everywhere except the back wheel.

The weather is now taunting me, warm sunshine interspersed with rain showers, probably because I’ve just hung my washing out to dry.

    Panaracer Cinder 2.25

    Oddly it weighs less than Panaracer claim.

    Oh I see.
    I will google that tyre

    I might have to swap to larger front rims soon, I put a massive fold on the wall on mym 717 this morning (mostly due to it being windy and me being too tired to loft my way though some stone)

    I SAY “BOO”!
