After some fettling after the first ride on the Kona Ti Hei Hei I needed to get another ride in before tomorrows Nutcracker. So I was out and on the bike this morning for a second shake down ride. This time it was a 16 miler loop down / around Durham, Houghall woods, trod, dog kennels loop. No problems this time but the saddle could still go up another touch, apart from that I forgot to fit a bell which is a right pain the bot cycling around Durham and on the old railway lines. As for the weather well you can see in the photos it was overcast / cloudy but not too cold like the early morning frosts of the last couple of days.
Once back it was a quick change of kit and over to Low Shincliffe for a 5 mile hike - more on that below. Here are a few pics from this mornings ride -
Me & Jane parked up on the edge of Low Shincliffe and did a 5 mile hike taking in High Shincliffe and the river banks to end up in the coffee shop at Shincliffe garden centre. Again it was overcast and cloudy but the sun was trying to get through, it was warm as well. First time I have had my summer Alt Berg walking boots on, the trails are starting to dry up again.

This was a shake down ride on the old Kona Ti Hei Hei hardtail since I have rebuilt it last week. I will be using this at the Nutcracker Rd3 xc event at Aske Estate this Sunday so wanted to make sure it was ok. The snow had melted from overnight and was quite dry considering. By no way means was it warm and I had my full winter kit back on again. As for the bike well its going to need quite a few tweaks when I get a mo - saddle height up a touch, cleat tension on the pedals needs increasing, rear mech cable 1/2 a turn tighter, outer front mech screw 1/2 turn inwards, fork needs a touch more air as its too soft, gear shifters need moving inwards on the bars, a check over on all the nuts & bolts and job should be a good'un!
Below are a few pics from the ride, enjoy and hopefully more soon -
