    adventures on the mav 2013

    far too quiet around here (deja vu?)

    was out in the aosta valley (italy) last weekend for an enduro event - as a result of those short few days, this area is now one of my fav spots in the alps. being there early in the season (summer lift still closed) probably helped.

    i've been tweaking the durance: new internals for the DUC32 & shock from ethan, and special headset cups to slacken out the head angle - don't know if absolutely accurate, but a good measurement suggests a change from 69 to 67

    this all got bedded in and properly thrashed on the timed sections at the event - the durance has never felt more composed in the rough

    pix below show the 'rocky bilboa' trail and one of the transfers (with my dog sophie).

    It is raining That looks very fun though. I did not know you could change the angle on a DUC 32 that is cool.

    not directly on the DUC32. special offset cups sit in the frame where the bearing sit, and the bearings sit in the cups - more or less just like the angle set from cane creek. the whole system sits then a little taller, and together with the offset this gives you (quote) around 1.7 (unquote) more slack ...

    more serious abuse this last weekend, everything seems to be fine
