Ok. Definitely not a sandwich. But I think this deserves to be recorded in the annals of history as a great little/enourmous meal that would make your mother blush. THE EVERYTHING OMELETTE - inspired by this little wonder. Thanks Jake. This also harks back to the Christmas edition of “Best Sandwiches Ever” which involves raiding the fridge and generally having a good time.
1. Raid the fridge. Be adventurous. I found mergez sausages, fried potatoes, tomatoes, bacon, onions, mozzarella and parmasan cheese.
2. Fry the bacon and add the onions when the liquid starts to come out of the meat; maybe add a little garlic. Add the tomatoes and fry them off a bit pour off any excess liquid and add the fried potatoes to reheat them. Apparently frying potatoes twice is a good way to get them super crispy!
3. Add the other sauages to heat them through too and crack two or three eggs into a bowl or pitcher and mix them up to break the yolks. Season them. I always forget.
4. Heat the grill.
5. Pour your eggs into the pan and fry for a few minutes add some mozzarella if you hate yourself. Add grated parmasan if you REALLY hate yourself.
6. Once you can see that the underside is cooked by lifting the edge with a spatula place the pan under the grill - you’ll want to make sure that you use a pan with a handle that won’t melt but even so, make sure the handle is out from under the grill stop avoid burning your hand. Still, use a table cloth to take it out.
7. Serve. Eat in front of a beautiful sunset, because I can’t promise you’ll ever see another one after eating this…

Going Tubeless

Pre-Tubeless weights

Recently, I got my tubeless kit from the UK and brought it back to France to make the conversion for my Scott and to see what all the fuss was about. To begin with my wheelset (rims, hubs, spokes, nipples, tape, tyres and tubes) weighed 1.76kg front and 2.31kg rear; total 4.07kg (nearly half the weight of the bike! – wow!) After making the conversion with the Stan’s latex and valves the weight was 1.64kg front and 2.19kg rear; total 3.83kg saving 240g overall. While not a monumental weight it’s still something and, especially with 29ers, every gram you can save on the wheels will/should(!) make a difference.

Good for you Singletrack Mountain Bike Magazine ! Stick to your guns! What most people completely fail to recognise is that mountain biking and cycling (as a sport as opposed to a method of commute) is almost exclusively the domain of white, middle class men. We need to weed out the knuckle draggers who make this an uncomfortable place for those of other demographics to be …and not to mention the fact that I am a white middle class man, this kind of shit feels really exclusionary and makes it feel like a club that I don’t want to be a part of. Gone are the days of Jenna Jameson pushing Marzocchi products. Try harder next time Danny MacAskill.
