    Added/changed some things+ New photo's:

    -Evoc Saddlebag (blue of course)
    -censored Saver Wide (5cm wider)
    -SKS Flap Guard, no more mud in my face (not cool when u have glasses!).
    -Lezyne Sport Drive HV

    Probably gonna add a new gopro mount (for another POV), and a Garmin Edge 520, because i need GLONASS for the woods!

    Nice pics. May I ask how did you choose the size of the bike? According to Canyon's PPS system? What size is it?

    Btw, I'm also in Leuven. What's your experience so far at this time of the year, any good routes that are less muddy. I've been mostly road riding, but think about going off road.

    Yeah i used their tool, but i also had a bikefitting a few months ago for my roadbike, so i know how big my bike should approximately be.

    Yeah it's my first mountainbike so i have to discover alot of trails and there are plenty in Meerdaelwoud and Heverleebos. Just take a look on Strava and u'll find many, that's what i'm doing.

    I hope you didn't size your mountain bike the same as your road bike! It should be quite a lot smaller. Bike fits don't work for mountain bikes because you're not just sat in the saddle like you are with a road bike, it's when you're out of the saddle you will really feel it if your bike is too big.

    I did do that, but only for the saddle position, the toptube is alot shorter. And haven't regretted it yet, it never felt to big out of the saddle (or on the saddle).
