The lovingly restored and cherished Ground Effect Kombi was stolen from our locked garage at work over the Matariki weekend, and was found a few days later hacked up for parts. Check out its short eulogy in photos from an adventurous life.
It has been about seven months since I wrote to you about the problem with my favourite bike shorts (MFBS), a sorrowful tale about how my old biking companions had started to finally fall apart. You Ground Effect folk responded with kindness, after clearly empathising with my pitiful situation.
I am writing with a complaint of sorts. It's about my favourite bike shorts (MFBS), they are starting to fall apart. The stitching is giving way in four separate places and the synthetic chamois is worn through. I am quite distressed about this state of affairs as my MFBS and I have been through a lot together over the past 12 years.
Jonathan, Paul and Simon Kennett’s over-and-above contributions to New Zealand mountain biking have been recognised by the Mtb Hall of Fame. They join this year’s inductees (sounds painful) to the venerable Marin institution.
