I was somewhat surprised by how good it felt to ride today. 15C, overcast, moist all over, I figured I might as well roll over to Gatineau Park and go with the flow. The system near the prison was sweet, even has a few berms and little jumps to play on. Further up, the trails from Hickory were totally rad on my wheel set-up, so I didn't have to micro-manage my rock avoidance. I am all over the 650b fat tire action, since my bike doesn't get jacked up when the tires get plump. I'm also totally jonesing for a @compasscycle tire in 45-48mm with some knobs...preferably small sharp ones! In the meantime, I might have to source something else for testing, as this stuff is too fun not to ride, and I'm not keen on taking my cx race tires in here! It's pretty amazing what you can do on a cyclocross bike with the right wheels! #dynamicdirtduo #wovenprecision #650bgravel #compasstires #switchbackhill #ovalrevolution #terrainlab #silca #brodie

#doublecross2017 was a wet affair today, certainly a seminar in hydrodynamics as well as appetite. @iain.radford and I were twinsies on @wovenprecision #650b gravel wheels and 48mm @compasscycle superlight tires. Mud was to be treated with the utmost respect, and I admit I was caught out a couple times, but overall, these wheels rocked it. In dry conditions, hard to top. Looking forward to wearing down Jan Heine to the point that he makes a tire like this with a bit of tread 😉// #brodie #englishbicycles #650bgravel #endurocx #compasstires #switchbackhill #teknecc #teknecycling

Another fun weekend with some great weather lined up for cx in Cornwall on Sunday, then Double Cross on Monday. I think I'll rock this mullet 700c/650b wheel combo again 😜// 📷@rotationalmass // #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #DoubleCross2017 #teknecc #teknecycling #magliarosacyclocrossseries #bromontcx #gogiro #terrainlab #ovalrevolution #wovenprecision #brodie

A simple, though perhaps elusive solution to cable contamination for the #yokozunamotoko mechanical/hydro rear brake I'm testing. The front isn't prone to contamination, as the cable housing points down at its opening, but the rear points up. Low friction between cable and housing is vital to create and maintaining a smooth, as-close-to-hydro-as-possible lever feel, and the Yokozuna compressionless housing helps here, and eliminates sponginess too. I dug up a JagWire ferrule, which has a pipe extending from it, and this sliding boot that would normally be used for a derailleur cable. I trimmed the pipe to just extend through the brake's cable stop, and the boot fits over top of that. It's obviously a little longer than optimal, but this is not affecting the cable pull. The cable is now fully sealed from end to end. I have a newly released high polish JagWire from @phatmoosecycles to install next, which should take me as close to hydro feel as possible. #dynamicdirtduo #matter #gearreview #productreview #producttesting #motoko #bikehack

Rainy rut rockin'. I could pretend I shredded this thing nonstop, but truth is that ripping sand ruts is way harder than the pros make it look. I nailed 5 out of about 50 rounds, and crashed another 5. What did I learn? It worked best for me to drop my shoulders forward as I hit the apex, then sort of hang on for the ride. Hard to describe, harder to execute consistently. Too bad sand practice is so rough on the bike! #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #skillsanddrills #dropbarbraap #terrainlab #ovalthis #teknecc #teknecycling

Mounted, tested, ready to rumble. CX Nats in Sherbrooke should be a muddy affair, they’re getting lots of rain. I expect these Vittoria muds will come in handy. #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #canadiancxchamps #dynamicdirtduo #brodie #wovenprecision #gogiro #teknecycling

Sand practice. Riding ruts is hard; hence, practice. Hard to think of a better way to spend an hour in the rain. #dynamicdirtduo #terrainlab #cxsession #cxskills #sandisfying #terrainlab #ovalthis #brodie #wovenprecision

Yesss! Found a spot to session slow, rutted turning, a decent simulation of the tricky section from last weekend's @rochestercyclocross race. Going in with the front brake only seemed to help track more precisely, an unexpected revelation! #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #cxskills #cxsession #teknecc #teknecycling #matter #yokozunamotoko

Workin’ it. Sunday’s race in North Gower featured a fantastic descent that rolled great tape-to-tape! 📷 Mike Downey // #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #ovalthis #terrainlab #brodie #gogiro #wovenprecision

The least lame moving picture of the turn I sessioned today. The five times I nailed it fast, the camera had auto-stopped...short on memory. #lifedeathcyclocross #cxlife #skillsanddrills #sandskills #dynamicdirtduo #terrainlab #ovalthis #teknecc #teknecycling

A bit of #dropbarbraap captured by @rotationalmass during today's hot, hot, hot cyclocross race in Renfrew. It was all about pacing at 30 degrees Celsius, and I was stoked to do the best ride I had in me today, finishing 3rd behind some pretty rad dudes, @matteoadalcin (1st) and @evanmcneely (2nd). I think everyone in our race was pretty stoked we raced 50 minutes instead of the full hour! #lifedeathcyclocross #braapin #dynamicdirtduo #brodie #gogiro #sockdoping #terrainlab #ovalthis #teknecc #teknecycling #wovenprecision

Gaaaaaa! Flatted mid-race in Rigaud while in the mix for 2nd, trailing @derrickstjohn . Rode the flat to the pit, grabbed my second bike, it had a rear flat! WTF! Sabotage? Probably not, must have been some bizarro cause. Game over. Stoked to have the form to contest the podium; live to fight another day! #dynamicdirtduo #brodiebikes #romax #wovenprecision #terrainlab #teknecc #teknecycling

First impressions of the #yokozunamotoko cable-to-hydraulic disc brakes I'm testing: so far so good. Set-up was simple, and I've not had to touch them since. I raced day-1 of @rochestercyclocross on them, and power was ample. Toward the end of the race I found the pads were developing a grinding feel, which was affecting modulation. I have Yokozuna's XC pads mounted, which are organic. I will have to inspect them to determine what's going on there, but am confident I'll sort that easily; pads are simple enough to experiment with. I'll also mess with pad springs, as the stock pads have stronger ones than the upgrades; I used the stiffer ones to start. I'd like to get a lighter feel at the lever, closer to hydraulic, so I'll wind up trying a few things, including a seal for the rear cable. #matter #productreview #dynamicdirtduo #yokozuna #motoko #teknecycling #brodie

Ok, as much course preview as I could muster at dusk, thanks to @pygauthier1 behind the iPhone. Last year's run-down-and-up is now rideable, and the section around the tree stump is new. Such a great course, lots of fun features. With all the rain this year the soil is far more integral than last year, I expect it will hold up better. Should make for fun racing tomorrow! @rochestercyclocross #rochestercx #fullmoonvista #crossishere #cxsession #dynamicdirtduo #teknecc #teknecycling #brodie #lifedeathcyclocross

Just in time for @rochestercyclocross this weekend, #yokozunamotoko cable-to-hydraulic disc brake calipers for review! Many thanks to Merry Sales, Yokozuna's North American distributor, for shipping these out to me in time for the weekend! Design is clean, finish is great, installation a snap. The calipers come with Yokozuna's unrivalled Reaction compressionless housing, which I've used for a few years, and love. They also come with 160mm rotors (not pictured) that use a fairly typical all-purpose wavy, cut-out pattern. I've got Yokozuna's Japanese-made XC organic pads installed as a hop-up from the stock Taiwanese pads. So far, they feel good, definitely powerful, softer at the lever than my SRAM hydros. Lots of modulation. I'll do a proper break-in ride tonight. #matter #techreview #realworldtesting #cxbike #yokozuna #bikebling #teknecc #teknecycling
