Went out on my Cotic today and ever since I got the forks they have never really felt right. Anyhow after todays ride I stripped them down. Turns out the bell housing that serviced them last based down on the south coast had over filled the damper causing it to stiffen up to a practical lockout at 80-90mm travel. Damper has been sorted now and they feel cock on.

Got some miles in earlier around Bike Park Peak district. Slow up-hill still (have been all my cycling life tbh) but blazing the descents. Aiming to drop a fair bit of weight over the next two months, should help me up hill. I've even got the turbo trainer ready.

Yes needs some working on that does! I was riding alongside my mate and his was 130ish and mine was 160ish. Need to drop some bark and it will get a bit more sensible!

I thought I was the only one hitting stupidly high heart rates. I hit 172 (95% max) and averaged 152 (84% max) and that was nipping round the blue route FFS.

I often hit 180+ I nearly puke and all these cunts like Barnes etc are chatting away while I die...
