34.

i really love the fox 36. for my preferred type of riding – which is increasingly also natalie’s preference – the 36 is the perfect fork. smooth and yet almost bottomless, light enough to carry it up the hill yet ready to bail you out when that line choice does not work out and a…

one to rule them all.

i’ve finally done it. that last tank was a real challenge, due to the fact that it cannot be removed form the karavan. that left me with a lot of bad choices and the only thing left to do was trying not to make the wrong one. i searched and – uncharacteristically for a man…

perspective.

first she wanted my camera. ‘daddy can that camera also be mounted on my helmet, too?’ (she has the same helmet) – ‘yes …’ – ‘can i have it, please?’ – ‘what now?’ – ‘yes now’ – ‘um ok …’ (what do you say; check mate in three). the next thing was that she wanted…

dirty south.

dirty south is probably now natalie’s new favourite trail. honestly, i totally agree. it is a quintessential (short) enduro trail and it has been part of the east coast titles (where nat competed) and the rollercoaster green valleys round. we pitched the disco on the green for the day. kris got a little shade she…

milestone.

it’s not really a great deal, but still: i just crossed 1000km on my bike this year, 77 hours all in all. i know people on road bikes spend much more time on their contraptions but i think i have a lot more fun on my little nomad. i could not possibly claim i loved…

fresh water 2 – tick!

taking off the rear fresh water tank was easier than expected. five massive bolts, a few hose connections and the whole thing comes off. so far so good. the next part was the tried and tested ‘install a wema reed relay sensor’ method. easy, right? ‘ i hate drilling holes into tanks. silly, there are…

sinked.

yes, i’m aware of basic english grammar and no i did not write this post after a long night of fun. it’s probably that ‘dad joke’ thing natalie like to complain about. anyway, as i was saying the sink slide (get it now?) on the kk was a bit notchy and there was not a…
