Puncture. Again. In the rear wheel of the Terratrax, so I took the Rockhopper to work instead, and realised that yes, it does take more drive than the other. Also took far too much faffing to get the saddle height right - I should have marked it.

Thus, got to work at 0935.

The bikes are provisionally named Truth (the Red Terratrax) and Fiction (the Blue Rockhopper), because apparently Bikes Are Supposed To Have Names. Fiction gives a smoother ride but Truth gets you there faster; debates on which is actually stranger continue.

I have green gunge in my wheelchair types that stops me getting so many punctures, I imagine it's available for bikes... worth a try? it's stopped a good few of mine from being more than just a minor irritation. Saying that I haven't used a bike in five years, so I've got no idea how it works

Fiction's got that at the moment, Truth doesn't. I'll have to see how it works.

Your bikes should meet my flighty filly Blood Wraith! ;-) Actually, I was wondering how many of us have bikes and would be willing to go out on a CamGoth rally/ride... Whaddaya think (apart from the usual cats and herding stuff! ;-P)

i do, & it sounds like a good plan once i get my own damn puncture fixed.
ashamed to say the one i have is called Daisy - it's little, white and dirt cheap. the one before was Chiara after a horse in a story i was writing that ran like the wind. unfortunately she ran like the wind from Newnham bike park leaving her back wheel behind her :(
