Port to Port done and dusted

For anyone who thought about P2P but did not do it - here is a first hand account of it.

On paper it is four days with no day being particularly long so it looks like pretty simple but it was a bit harder than what I thought. All locations are quite scenic and offer more than mountain biking for the support crew to enjoy. Anyone who made the mistake of inviting a spouse to e.g Scott 24hr may have a little convincing to do but it is an enjoyable event for support crew as well as riders.

Titanium 135x10 bolt thru skewer???

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Does anyone know if there's a titanium 10mm bolt thru skewer available?

Building up a set of wheels for the carbon hardtail and want to beef up the rear over the standard QR.

I'll probably go with a 10mm bolt on but am wondering if there's a Ti option for these because, well...as the kids say...because titanium. Laughing out loud

Kowen Forest update for 03 May

Rode East Kowen yesterday, some of the single track is looking rather unloved at the moment, not that's it's in bad condition necessarily, just doesn't seem to be getting a lot of wheels over it so leaf litter and pine cones are building up.

Padding recommendation

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Had a fairly major crash six weeks ago that resulted in a broken elbow. Still some time till full recovery but want to make sure I have some good elbow and knee pads for when I can ride again. I focus on endurance rides so really looking for something comfortable and not bulky. Any recommendations? Thanks
