    Strathpuffer

    Anyone going?

    I am in a 4 team.

    Looks like another epic 24hrs with lots of snow,ice and crap weather!

    Now the silly part... going to do it on the FR!!

    I have made some ice tyres but will wait until the day to decide if I will need them or not.

    Done it last year so I know what's ahead.

    Hiya Kbrembo how did you get on? I went with three mate (our 4th year!) and had just the best time. Best event yet I think. How did your FR perform with your home made ice tyres? I just used normal mud tyres and found these to be okay.

    Epic weekend and I hope you had a great time

    Just had a look at your pictures. Man, you guys must have balls of steel. Camping there and having a race going on at that circumstances... ReSpEcT!

    I'll bet the steel-suspension-rohloff combo performed flawlessly, as always

    LOL Testman

    The Strathpuffer is my favourite event of the year. I love the winter, snow, rain and the dark so with 18 hrs of darkness and lots of snow and ice and a bit of rain I was in heaven Plus the whole weekend is such a good laugh.

    As for the bike and the ‘hoff both worked flawlessly. It is good to have one less thing to worry about Mind you I managed to scratch the frame on the way home still it looks used now
