They say blue and green should never be seen. What about blue and pink? is that rinky dink?
Today it was 5 degrees c before wind chill, and there was a stiff breeze. Fired out to the mustard loop at Aberfoyle, as there was some unfinished business from yesterday. Took a few detours i have never been on (that place really is a maze) and put in 3 hours of fine riding in the dry on the pink bike. It is a nice ride. Super responsive, willing to push cornering traction whilst maintaining a super solid feel and an ability to plow through chop like no other. It doesnt have the seated climbing my ti one has and it isn't as comfortable on the arms, but it wasnt designed to be exactly the same: i am entirely happy with it. The addition of the RWS quick release sized skewers (rather than the thru axle ones - to facilitate changes to the QR's needed for the racks, has certainly tightened up the lateral rigidity too. 12.12pm to 315pm.
Almost managed to distract me from the fact that i only had a wool top to ride in as i forgot my wind proof...
Yesterday i did a simple mustard loop, 2.38pm to 5.08pm. The climb up the back side of that loop is always a strain in a 34:18, but it went in the end. I also found one or two side loops i have never done before, which were errr, a little cheeky? But well worth it...and obviously mossed over from lack of use.
We all seem to be going well, steve, marty, the minxes, grant and simon are all in the game. And cris! Trev, not so sure, havent seen an update...but i reckon he'll be grand.
