Shimano Saint MX80

Look what turned up today - some Saint MX80 pedals for when I am feeling more adventurous (read - too scared for clips).  Hopefully fit them this weekend for a test ride...

Hope Brakes

New brake discs have arrived for the bike.  Hope 185s up front and 160s at the rear.  These are floating (hence the red spider).  Initial impressions are good - but I need a couple of rides to let them bed in before passing judgement.

Nobby Nics

New tyres turned up - just taken them for a 12 mile test and all is well.  They are Nobby Nic 2.25" Double-Defense with a different compound centre, to outside.  Compared to my old Panaracer Trailracers they are faster in a straight line but don't shed mud quite as well.
