the ugly bike ride

i decided to dig out the Voodoo Wanga frameand build it up with the Singular Hummingbird forks i bought in the summer, the build went quite smoothly in single speed guise and so i needed a test run. it looks a bit odd i have to say but it rides really nicely and you don't notice the wheel size irregularity apart from the front being high enough (a low front end is something i dislike about 26" rigid bikes) i think the no nonsense rigids are going to be idea for the coming winter and to make it more useable i wil 1x9 it.
i took a route through the woods and along the canal and the bike performed perfectly even if the steepest climbs took extra effort
ride 128
10 miles
total 2109
commute 966
total+commute 3075
