Tomorrow is bike test photo-shoot day for myself, Jamer and young Jake. A day spent blipping through sections trying to keep your tongue in your mouth for legendary snapper Steve Behr.
I won’t lie to you though, I have a bit of an alterior motive tomorrow. You see after my hectic weekend of shed-fettling/Hoegaarden drinking, tomorrow will be my first proper razz out on my new Morewood Izimu DH bike.
The only thing that’s needed swapping since it arrived last week is the slightly tiddily 300×3.25 rear spring. At a scrawny yet heavy-boned 6ft 1″, that’s a bit on the light side for me. Thankfully though, when it comes to Fox suspension fixes there’s a Bat-phone-like number that’ll sort you out quicker than, well… Batman – Mojo.
After a quick chat with Tim and Chris I now have two spring options to have a play with – a 400×3.25 and a meatier 450×3.25.
One of my aims at the start of this year was to run my bikes a bit firmer so I’ll have a play tomorrow and let you know how I get on.
