My best recollection...
That's the plan, eventually - but I think your Tanzawa hiking tiles are safe for a while longer.At this rate, there won't be any Golden Tiles left.
I'm really pleased with my Niner MCR 9 RinDO. It's expensive. It's heavy. But the comfort of having suspension front and rear is worth the trade-off for me on rides like yesterday's; my rigid CX frame would rattle me so much, especially on descents. (I could slow down, but where's the fun in that!?) The Schwalbe Land Cruiser tires I transplanted from the CX bike seem to be really hard-wearing and offer a nice sweet spot: hard centerline for long stretches of tarmac (with suspension locked-off), but enough grip at the sides to cope with gnarlier conditions (boinnngg).How do the new Niner work out?
I found a very faint trace on the Strava global heat map, so someone has ridden this unmapped rindō. Blue dots are as far as I got yesterday, green dots follow the trace. It seems to go down (in elevation) another 200 m or so, and then just stop. Weird... but by no means unprecedented.how far the rindō goes. It keeps going after the summit, but I couldn't find it on any map and it seemed to be going back into tiles that I already have.
I've barely used my car for years, but by golly it's getting some miles on it these days. Disadvantage of car vs train is that I have to go back to where I left it, and then drive. On the upside, it's not a train.It is getting harder and harder to avoid using the rinko
