22.5 months

That’s how long it’s been since I rode a geared mountain bike off road, gears aren’t really necessary round here, but they do make the first 20 minutes of climbing out of the valley slightly easier. I just did the normal 11 mile route with 750′ or so of climbing. Oddly I was about 0.5mph slower on than last time out on the singlespeed possibly due to the heavier bike with fatter tyres. The rear wheel looks a bit wonky at the moment, but I have a feeling that it may be the tyre rather than the rim, time for investigation later.
