Grävling

I have entered the black hole of "upgrading". A dark realm also known as money pitting.. Things that has been swapped out so far is the shitty pedals for some shitty but lighter Dartmoor ones, a cheapo inline race-face seat post instead of the generic boat anchor post wich had a bit of layback..

And then there is the obviuos downgrade of adding 600+g of front rack to a 13kg bike but i'm not going anywhere fast so fuck it, plus the Ti bottle cage bolts from aliexpress will remedy that..

Future up/down grades will be:
WTB resolutes 42/tubeless and some rando bag..



And here is the tiny twin Grävling sort of hiding..


(Grävling is swedish for badger..now you know..)

rattling noise that works as a bell..

Much of the fleet have suffered during the winter, most of them live in the wild all year. no roof, no locks, no care

Bike work dickings.. forgot how much i enjoy this..
The endless process of moving shit parts between shit frames to make shit bikes..


Wont work, ain't care..


Why i love steel frames.. I can work with them


The mega monster rack was to big for shit bike so i resurrected the dirty mercxx.. Still some things to figure out but it's a better fit..
