Three Things That Make Adam Brayton a Happy Boy:
Sixty Seconds with Josh Bryceland
Got sixty seconds for a bike check Josh?
Tell me what to do, as soon as my bike's ready, I'm going. Geeky details? What bar do you run? Frame?
800mm ENVE's with 20mm rise. Large size frame. Only the large?
Yeah, standard large, standard swingarm. I was running a Buzzworks headset to make it 8mm longer. But I took it out as I was doing a bit of understeerin' need to get a bit more weight on the front wheel. Suspension sag??
F*** knows... a bit? I got a chunky chain guide on it, because sometimes I bash that f***er. Tire pressure?
30psi front and rear. Pretty hard?
Yeah I hate it when the tires roll, you know on a hard pack berm when you feel the casing flex? Makes me feel sick so I pump it up. Any changes for this week?
Not really just the headset. I don't really f*** with much, just set it up and leave it. Hair preparation?
Lenzerheide lake. Full natty brah?
Yeah, just wash it in the lake. Morrocan oil?
Hmm, I need a bit of summat at some point, that's what my missus uses, is that what you use? Yeah, just the cheap stuff from Tesco, £6 a bottle.
Does the job doesn't it! I just rock the tangle teaser really, just drag that through once a week. Yeah I don't comb it, just wash with water.
Really, does it not dread up? Not really.
Fair enough, it's curly as f*** innit.
Mathias Fluckiger's Upside-Down Handlebar
Stoeckli-Pro-Team cross country rider Mathias Fluckiger really wants a lower front end. Negative rise stem combined with a negative rise handlebar. I was so shocked I couldn't even focus.
Mondraker's Space Station and Ragot's Summum
I had a quick chat with Emmeline's mechanic Andy Ward: Any changes for this week?
For this track we have gone with a shorter, 35mm stem and higher bars, just to get a better balance. She's feeling a lot more confident on it. Tire pressures?
I can't divulge that kind of information! Are you using Procore?
No we're not using Procore, but we have lowered the tire pressures a bit, just to try and get some more grip on the corners, it's pretty loose up there. That's pretty much it. We have found really good settings for her this year, but tweaked a few things since Leogang. She's feeling more lively on the bike now so will be interesting to see how things go for her tomorrow.
