Attempts were Made

Bikes, cameras, and attempting to get trailing lights on the bridge captured on my wide angle lens at 4am this morning.

Only decent shot I got this morning… cropped because I was standing around to the right and my light was too bright in the frame…

Flash set to fire on the rear curtain, I brought an old remote trigger and the antennae broke on my first pass. All secondary attempts were done by setting up a timer and long shutter duration. After a dozen attempts I packed up, came home and made coffee.

Setup shot – check focus, flash, position… and put on a warm layer.

Prototyping

I’ve been prototyping a magnetic decaleur for the Swift bag… I’m fully into V2, and already see how V3 will work out better.

Bike Geek Pics – IF

Recent bike geek pics of my Ti Independent Fabrications Club Racer. Currently running Clement MSO tires under PDW Full Metal Fenders with Paul Racer M brakes. I have some drivetrain updates to do – but the 9spd bar end has been solid.

Krampus Continued

Some pictures of the new rig, with a proper fitting frame bag and my dyno lights… I used my Dinotte for a few days – and man I missed the Revo. So nice to have things back to ‘normal’. Really enjoying this bike, it needs a proper bikepacking trip to get a full test – but so far its a pleasure to ride.

Nothing more to say at the moment. Had a blast in the woods this afternoon. The Fargo will need to be put up for sale…
