After stealing the saddle and pedals off my trek I headed out for a quick loop. Seeing as I knew there wasn't much daylight left I didn't go far from home. Just explored trails I usually run on. It's a lot easier to carry than a mountain bike - set of steps to see! It felt fine going downhill, only I was scared of the idea! I think it'll take more than I realise! I had to stop twice before I got the saddle height right and then the minute I hit the mud I had to loosen the brakes as the noise was scary! Then I found that although they slowed me down stopping was harder, not great when heading for a road junction! But I loved it! So who wants to come cross riding?
