Silence is golden

Out for a spin on the Hemlock with Al this afternoon round a route I’d not ridden for about 7 years. Last time I rode it I crashed and knackered my arm, however since then it’s tamed itself down a bit, and what was once a rocky muddy track with 2-3′ gulleys caused by the stream is now a decent fast rocky descent.

The best part of the ride is that the Cotic Hemlock was virtually silent. All the creaking has gone, all you are left with is occasional tyre rub when climbing in a low gear, something that could be cured with a slightly narrower rear tyre.
