We're still about: there's no such thing as the wrong weather, only the wrong gear.

Replaced the bars as they were doing my head in, cable channels were cracking an its just where you put your hands, my own fault for doing cable runs too short. Also gone slightly more narrow on the bars after having my ICS measured. Decided on some fun bar tape as well.

Giant are the largest bicycle manufacturer on the planet by quite a margin. They're basically the Toyota of bicycles, nothing exciting (God forbid!) but they'll roll around and around unexcitingly forever.

Have a 2010 Devinci Hectik that has recently recieved a brand new powdercoat job, new decals, all new bearings and hardware, freshly installed BB, new (but old) shock and TFTuned mounting kit... Shame I'm not gonna build it up into a full bike, its certainly been a project!

Getting there... Even though the powder coater masked off the brake mounts he didn't do them all the way so I have to scrape with a blade. Very time consuming and a PITA.

I would argue Danny STAY ON YOUR BIKE Hart is the exciting part of the equation, given his performance on Mondraker lately maybe the Glory was somehow making him less exciting, an excitement vampire if you will.

Restoration of the Devinci is almost complete.

It's been stripped down, sand blasted, given a lovely semi-gloss powder coating, had all new roller needle bearings fitted, freshly serviced Monarch, new shock hardware, new XT BB, new pivot bolts, custom decals. Almost as fresh as the day it rolled out the hand-made Canadian factory.



Shame i'm never going to be able to ride it
