Late arvo ride with the young fella. His first ride with the full face and decent tyres (Schwalbe Little Joe's) and the difference in confidence was huge. Hit some downhill rutted and rocky berms fast enough that I was worried for him, but he handled it all really well. Was asking when we're going again before we'd even for got back to the car.

My first ride with bigger and tubeless tyres (DHF 2.5 / DHR 2.3) and wow. Grip was about what I was expecting but was amazed how easy to pedal and how light the bike felt, even coming off a light 2.1 Crossmark. I'm an idiot for persisting with tubes and skinny tyres for so long.

WFH LTR today... we did about an hour of tooling around... nature strips, stairs, railway bike paths, the local high school where my girls went, then into the hills on a sneaky bit of single track, then reversed it home. It was nice to get out.

Hit Kalamunda with a mate today at dawn. Somehow smashed my toe between a rock and the pedal on a downhill run at a decent speed. Finished the ride out in a fair bit of pain.

Driving a manual car home wasn't much fun. Get home and take the shoes off and bits of nail fall out of the sock. Bit worried it might be fractured as it's blown right up now.

Swapped the Fox36 and Float X2 from the Rune onto the Balance. Absolutely transformed the bike. The Balance has gone from an absolute pig of a climber to a very good climber. Being able to lockout the grip damper on the Fox36 is just magic on road climbs.

Will test out the Diamond and Topaz on the Rune tomorrow. I suspect the super plush nature of the DVO products will suit the very stiff Rune very nicely.

Dude! Solid fork envy happening here. Bike looks sweet too.

Was going to ride. Then there was light rain and clouds that screamed "look out dickhead!" So I stayed home. I did do a little mechanical work and now have a bunch of internally routed cables. Not as much fucking around as I had expected, but a lot trickier than zip tying them to the frame.
