Trouble on the trails!!!

Today we went for a final spin before christmas. All was going well in the morning with some nice trails. Then around mid day I was on a trail and got a branch stuck in my chain that ripped the mech hanger off the bike and broke a spoke.As we were on a DH section I took the mech and chain off and free wheeled the DH section to the bottom of the trail.

Ater the DH I decided to Single Speed the bike to get around the other trails. I shortened the chain and hooked up a power link to close the chain. There was enough tension to keep the chain on fixing it by hand.
The chain stayed on and the quick fix got me around another trail and back to the car.

Trek Remedy 8 SINGLE SPEED!!!!

GoPro Scorpion Boom Mount

Scorpion Boom Mount AKA The Brush Shaft!

The tim
e had finally arrived to test the mount. A beautiful morning with a light dusting of snow and a frozen ground. I went to Cavehill belfast because its a trail with no trees and I wanted to try this somewhere without breaking my neck if it caught on a tree. I took it slow to get some good footage and try and get a feel for the weight on my head. It turned out pretty good I think. The early morning light really helped.
