Tankfarm Tuesday went pretty well last night. Around 16 people turned up – it was great considering some of the main troops were out of action. Shaun came along on his Vivalo. Was good to spin some pedals and have a natter with everyone. All the Solejammers were killing it. Hieu took a nasty over the bars tumble on the main road, a bit of a leg graze was all that eventuated, frame and trispoke intact. We ended back up at the Vodafone building which we found out has a convenience store which stocks beer. So much trickery and talking ensued and then a massive footdown 12 game championship where Mike Lawrence emerged the victor, closely challenged by ‘smash derby’ Terry Clines. Ken managed to bend his forks wallriding – it was Adam’s Ken Evans Olympic frameset. His front wheel wouldn’t event spin. Frank came to the rescue with his 650c spinergy and did a wheel swap so everyone could ride home. Pepe was also killing it in footdown weaving between everyone. Good times.
I rode alongside Mike while he was doing a massive wheelie, check it out on the clip- it was 3 blocks and 45 full pedal strokes long, and he stopped because the lights went red. I need to send that one to Trackasaurus!
And here is one of the footdown sessions – both clips pretty dark but you get the idea.
Here is Adam’s titanium beast, and Shauns Vivalo.
