I can't believe no one else has commented to tell you how hilarious of a thought that is XD

I didn't have a good practice on my giraffe, so I decided to hop on my Oregon. Rode all the way from the park to all the way up the very steep road. Accomplished 98% of that "huff and puff, stroke by stroke" road to my brother's house with minimal walking.
Versus, the other day's not so accomplished hill climb with the 36er(just need to build more leg muscle), but definitely, the descend was way more exciting on the 36er!

We both scared the living crap outta each other as I rounded the corner and saw the horse. Then it's like, "oh, just a guy on one wheel, that's all" and went back to it's regular business.

You should be pretty comfortable riding skinnies and doing still stands. Try and go pretty quickly because the slack line isn't the best for big corrections, it'l fling you off.

Yesterday I went for 21.1km xc ride on my 29er.
Switched KH slim saddle makes me able to ride on high gear again (I was not able to ride with zero). That is amazing
Also I climbed steepest hill in our town - not every twowheeler can do that
Sad part is that I had flat tire after ~5.5km in the middle of steppe. During repair wind got stronger and I rode all my way back with wind in my face (appx 10ms).
Schwalbe Big apple 28x2.35 is very nice on the bumps - holding shape and low rolling resistance with low pressure. Does not came off the rim

That was awesome ride, sadly short but awesome

Oh, and clif bars (brownie) is veeeery yummy!

A rare visit to my old stamping ground of Sherwood Pines. I made it to the top of Spyglass Hill but with two UPDs and two long rests. I used to do it in one when I was in my prime.

Best part of trail, a few tree roots to jump over, have even had a mountain biker wait to get video of me coming through. apparently his mates at work wouldn't believe him without the evidence.
