After changing the travel in the Rebas this morning, then fitting new tyres, I decided it was time to take the 69er 3×9 for a spin. I initially headed up along Linear Way to see what’s going on with the Two Tunnels work, the answer is not a lot really. Picking up the usual route I headed up and into the woods, through the Uni, down into Bathampton, then back along the main road. About a mile from home the rear tyre went flat necessitating a repair or walk decision. 20 minutes later I finished the walked back into my road a home for a beer.
I was suffering from lower back ache every time I stepped off the bike, possibly from the Camelbak I was wearing, time to investigate Wingnut bags.
