It was super warm today and we made the most of it by riding all over the Bar M trails. I took the 75mm and the 7-14. Two ends of the spectrum, but I like they way they worked.
The 75 is probably my slowest focusing lens, I still love it though.As an aside I bought a 75mm 1.8 shortly after my EM5 Mk1, and I sold it because I could not get a single shot in focus of a moving subject. But fast forward 8 years and the EM1 Mk3 can do it no problem.
That is a Blaze https://www.blazebicycles.com/ . It is an Alpha Wulf, which they only do custom now. But it is made here in town... I walked in the shop and was smitten!
I love a full squish bike, but after I got this I never rode my FS bike again. Two years later new bike fever still has not worn off, but I know a FS bike would good on some of the longer tech descents. My wife can pull ahead on those and there is no way I can keep up.
I’m wider than you, so the size up works great for me.I use a Mindshift Gear Trail 180 pack to carry my camera and one extra lens. Unfortunately they don't make it anymore, the next size up is in my opinion too big for riding. I have been trying out a Lowepro bag this winter which has been ok... but it has so many straps and the zipper on the side compartment is kinda junky.
