I started with 150 cranks and swap to 127 within 5 minutes. Felt 150 softer than I can control. Lowered PSI to 15 (Maxxis Ardent... 2.5" I guess) and it became more maneuverable. I still need to get a comfortable high pace RPM without panting so much.

Thank you for the tips! After the newborn daily tasks (he is 8 day's old) I'll spend my remaining stamina on your suggestion.

I could have bought the Black Friday deal 32" Nimbus, tear it apart and build an Hatchet!!! My wife'll kill me if she discovers that I'm thinking to buy a uni again

I recently bought the 26" hatchet. It weighs 7.5kg. I think it eats energy when riding it. Whether on asphalt or sand there is a lot of friction. It is my work-out uni, but I prefer to ride the 29" Nimbus Oracle.
I can't idle at all, so have nothing sensible to say about that.

My wife was very angry when I told her 2 months after I bought it. It took me that long to build up the courage to tell her. If it is up to her I sell them all. Next time I will just tell her I had it all along and was just getting dusty in the shed.

I met a guy who bought all KH. His wife could tell the 19 and the 36 were different but couldn't tell the rest apart. He just kept moving the unis around the house and never had any two in the same room so she only thought he had 3 or 4 all the same color blue

All these men who try to deceive their wives (which is bad enough) but who also believe that they have been successful (which is just plain naive).

These wives are simply awaiting the ideal opportunity to deploy their knowledge of the attempt.

Be very afraid.

No more tips needed... I'm selling it!

I told her my plan for the hatchet (not the complete and exhaustive plan )...
I decided with her that I could sell my new KH and buy another one! Obviously I won't speak about different money spent!!!

If you are interested I wrote it on the Trading Post
