First time out off road for the Stigmata was a bit of a learning curve. 10 years since my last time on a Cross Bike.
With the hills being wet it was off to Bottle lake for the first time in years. Getting on to the tracks was a bit slow to get used to the lack of suspension and the drop bars. After about 20 minutes though, it all started coming back to me. The big wheels and skiny tyre had lots of speed but no suspension made the landings off of jumps a bit harsh! All up it was a blast.
Then some shots after the ride in the Bottle lake Sand Pit! Good job the frame is sand colour too!
Probably best to get it cleaned up, but it does look better with some dirt on it!
Next time weather permiting a lap of the hills.
