Having gone surprisingly well at a practice session for Dirt Quake it's time for some serious rubber. Armed with a couple of Taiwan's finest tyre levers and some elbow grease I managed to get the old tyres off, and even more incredibly I got the new trials tyres on with just a smattering of swears. Bloody hard work though. Took a quick spin across town to my folks for a test ride, the handling is hilarious - it manages to both resist turning and then plunge into turns like Ollie Reed falling off the wagon. Very strange. Looks just the part for jumping across a barbed wire frontier into Switzerland now.
