Wood Pedals

Nothing much to say but I see these quite often.

Ride of Lifetime II

Some lifetime events get better.  Nashesha and I rode as a team in our annual 2 day mtn bike race.  Each day is 50-65 km and around 1000 meters climbing.  She did great and had fun.  It was dusty and hot.  A few more pictures.

Riding up this valley was spectacular.

She rode with me down from Amani to Korogwe, a drop of 600meters.  I am happy that she has found a lifetime sport she enjoys.


We also did a leisurely ride one day in the forest around our place.

Roof top bike carrier

I have been using the roof top carrier for a year.  The trip this week one of the bolts broke.  I was able to weld it in Amani mountains and it worked better

  • I would weld  the axle to the dropouts.
  • I need to make another for the new style axles.
  • for the rear I stopped using a v channel for the back tyre, it is just cinched down.  
  • It helps to also cinch down the front fork.
