Out to the Beach
« on: 26.01. 2020 00:00 »
This is the outlet to Lake Ellesmere which is opened at different times, just in front of pic 1 there's a 2 metre bank and then you can cross over to the other side of the lake where the other bike is and follow tracks along to another way out , the rearward weight bias and narrow section tyres make riding in this softer stuff "interesting", I don't have the stand down in any of those pics

cheers for that *good3*, it seems someone had messed with mine before I got the bike 42 years ago and I just kept fitting it how I took it off. it had two bends near the holes, I have since found it was pulling the brake plate thus upsetting the shoe alignment . maybe when I am out and about I will have a better brake than I have struggled with for years and been relying on the good front stopper.
