The muddy conditions of last weekend were the final nail in the coffin for the bearings and seals. Time for a long-term review? 🤔 Rebuilding the Crankbrothers Mallet E (LS) is not that difficult and the pedals feel like new again 💪

The weather was nice this weekend for a long ride ☀️. It was the first time this year my feet wished for overshoes ❄️

New improvements are being made to my local MTB route Valkenburg 🇳🇱. Glad to see some single tracks 💪

Succesfully finished testing the 3D printed GoPro adapter for Magicshine bike light clones 😁. This makes for example mounting your light on your helmet easier and more stable.  Multiple versions will be for sale later this week 💪. #mtbparts #bikelight #rideinthedark #nightride #lumen #gopro #magicshine #3dprinting #testing #mtbguide
Riding in Germany 🇩🇪 this weekend in the district of Düren. I love the scenery, but my legs think otherwise to get there 😅  #mtbroute #Seeblick # mountainbiking #Waldkapelle #Obermaubach #duren #eiffel #runde_c #mtb #mtblife #mtbguide
No rebound adjust on my Fox fork for me this weekend... The knob coped with a few hits on the trails, but I eventually lost the somewhere 🤔

Finalizing the design for a 12mm Thru Axle chain keeper. A simple solution for bike maintenance and transport.

Last week the MTB route Maastricht 🇳🇱 has been awarded the Best New MTB Trail of the Netherlands. I rode it again today and I still totally agree. I don't feel challenged that often on MTB routes, but here I do 💪. Things like this steep narrow climb, with tree roots, a rock and an inconvenient tree, makes you think about line choice, gear, balance, accuracy and speed.

Designing and printing a GoPro mount that replaces my light's handlebar mount so that I can use it on my helmet. Very convenient for the nightrides 😃. They will be available after testing for two common "high output" DealExtreme lights. Soon more!

Yet another cut in the Schwalbe Rock Razor 😥. Time to replace this fast but prone to flats tire. I wonder what to take for the upcoming muddy conditions. Maybe Schwalbe Nobby Nic, go back to Maxxis or try out some WTB tires 🤔

The season of mud and hard to clip in pedals is here. Crankbrothers, well known for their mud clearing capabilities, finally released new cleats with a reduced release angle. Instead of the rather high 15/20° release angle, the Crankbrothers Easy Release cleats lower it to 10° (standard Shimano SPD's are 12,5°). I just installed these to be just a bit faster to get a foot out in these slippery conditions.

Can you do drop offs without any rebound (and compression) damping dialed in to your fork? Well, you can with these ones (in 2 tries 😅), but you really shouldn't. Pay attention to your suspension setup, it can make your ride so much more fun 🤘. #trialanderror #dropoff #rebound #mtb #mountainbikeskills #mountainbiking #suspensionfork #suspensionsetup #mtbguide
