Margins.

26 01 2019

The margins of the year just ended and the new year begun. It’s been strangely mild, a wee bit of snow but not much. Snow Job – my fat bike – has been deployed and has gained a Fox Transfer dropper – a huge boon as I have been fully assimilated to ride with the ability to drop my C.o.G. I find bikes where I cannot drop the saddle nerve wracking nowadays.

I had hoped to get out on a bike packing or maybe a bike/raftpacking mission at some point, but time seems to have evaporated. Instead, I have explored the local trails with a closer eye and even foraged for trail-side food at times.

The dRj0n bagworks project has been fun – I just put an order in for more of the stem/feed bag adaptors for the original DeWidget and along with more DeWidgets, 2 sizes of the Strap Deck. Logan at Bikepacking.com has a full ensemble on test and I hope to get access a wider market as a result of his (hopefully positive!) review. There has also been some work on a Garmin or Wahoo 1/4 turn top hat adaptor for the DeWidget. We will see where that goes…

Next up is a handlebar harness designed to utilise the Bar Yak Ultra…more soon.

Metal work has not happened, but I have been researching how it is best to machine titanium because I want to make some Ti thumbscrews. We’ll see ti is sticky and the swarf is a real fire danger.

Onwards.
