I have reused the original hubs from my 2011 Specialized Enduro Comp as rebuilt wheels with SixPack Racing spokes (double butted, 2-1.8-2mm) and Stans Flow Mk3 rims.
I thought that the bearings could be smoother and decided to take apart the hubs and check what kind of bearings they have.
1st step was naturally to take off the brake disc to prevent any contamination.

Routed a new line on Myllykallio. This is so far the most technical and might still change a little as the flow was broken few times.
Here are also few of the spots in 3rd person view for a little bit better measurement.
Another training session at Myllykallio with one new track (EK7) and some improvements to old ones.
EK7, a new track with a nice little huck in the middle.
EK2 got just a little reroute to include two new hucks.

I had a thought, that my local (500m from home) rock could act as a training place when I would not have time to go further.
Now I finally got to go route it and got a friend with me. We spent few hours routing and cleaned some rock and wood, and in the end, we had 5 new routes.
As per usual, the camera makes everything so smooth and nice 🙂
Here’s some material from winter group ride in Espoo. We didn’t anticipate that there would be so much snow, resulting in a very eventful ride as we mostly had skinny tires.

NOTE: Finnish people should have audio on, it will be worth it 🙂
After using the
30T oval on my 29er hardtail, I was convinced of the benefits that the oval chain ring brings to mountain biking: easier to rotate the cranks (no stalling) and the added traction from the lack of pulsating power on climbs. On other situations I didn’t even take notice that I was riding oval chain ring, that’s how natural it is to pedal!
So I naturally wanted an oval chain ring to my newly acquired 26 inch Specialized Enduro Comp (2011).
