Friday's rampage was a glorious thing. The suspension did its job beautifully and great fun was had by all.

Unfortunately, at the after-party in the park, both Kimmo and Bikezilla sustained injuries... Kimmo was taken out by someone on a pushie while jumping for a frisbee, and hopes his knee won't put him out of action for weeks, while Bikezilla was left to some unsupervised and uninstructed folks to joyride around the park, and its tricky double sprocket was found wanting for strength when a chain went south and got jammed... this was probably due to the fact the original chains are yet to be replaced, but nonetheless a stronger solution than brazing is being investigated.

The crew limped home around midnight, and were absolutely drenched in a massive downpour but spirits remained undampened and they partied on until dawn : )

As much as he'd like to, Kimmo can't bolt on stronger knees, but Bikezilla's improvements are ongoing.
