Interesting.
Do you know any good website in Spanish making a census of all good Spanish trails in the Pyrenees (High Aragon, etc) ?

I need to search again for the one I once found several years ago. The list was impressive. Jewel trails in the Huesca region and around.
I'm not making fun on Spanish websites, I just asked by curiosity cause so far I couldn't find it back.
In France the most popular portal seems to be www.utagawavtt.com

Though you should put your mind in order and try to find that Spanish site, thanks for the French link Eric

Fearless Juan has a new project. Now he’s preparing to set a new record: to be the first person to arrive on an unassisted solo cycle expedition to the South Pole: http://www.juanmenendezgranados.com/index.asp?lang=eng

He is 48 Km from the SP: http://www.juanmenendezgranados.blogspot.com.es/ (in Spanish)

Absolutely no chains and no nails on tyres.
It is a bicycle based on the maximum lightness and robustness.
No front/rear suspensions (The pressure of the huge tires works from suspension) only one disk brake (rear).
Fantastic :D

I wonder how is that he chose a rear disc break. Now I'm having troubles with my front one and I think that adjusting the break pads can be very dificult having that cold. However, the V-breaks would take too much snow in its pads. By the way, look at the little only chainring :!:
