Im sat here in a rather large department store in Cardiff "working" hard. Im so bored I thought I would see how other people manage to blag that they are working, when in actual fact they are on this forum "chatting" away! Im lucky as we have both a PC and a laptop to play with... and I face the main entrance to my department. If someone comes along I either pretend Im doing something constructive, or minimise the page... How do y'all do it?

    I'm at work, but work from home most of the time apart from going to meetings. Good thing is I can get out quite often for a lunchtime blast on the local trails at Thorndon (starts just 2 miles down the road from my front door). Of course I would only use my lunch time :wink:

    At work on break - My PC faces right into a corridor where people often pass me, but they pass behind me so I don't even know they are there. I get very limited time to "surf"

    Home for lunch, gotta cycle back now. 2nd day of 12 - 9 and 8 - 5 tomorrow :(

    I have got two bloody builds on and it's overwhelming me. I have all I need to get the Attack Trail finished now - just need to book it into LBS as I can't be arsed/have the tools/competent enough to do the frame swap myself - some fettling needed that's out of my league

    Wildcard has been put on hold until end of the month - basically I had put away some money for the rest of my kit on the wildcard and ended up spending it on the marin - but I couldn't let that beauty slip through my fingers now could I? :wink:

    GT - how's the new rig coming on - any news on the frameage yet matey?
  • The Big CheeseThe Big Cheese Posts: 10,309 Forum Tart 2010
    Oh, and stopped off for a couple of stellas on the way home and it was awful - you know when you just can't get into it? Hate it when that happens.... :cry:

    Normally I want to drink more than I can because its a school night and I have work the next morning - tomorrow I don't start until late and couldn't be arsed :?

    cheesey, you should deffo try and do the bike yourself, its v satisfying. the tools are a bit expensive but well worth it and you strike me as the type of cyclist who will be fitting and removing a lot if bits. plus, if you get stuck, theres always the tech section.
  • The Big CheeseThe Big Cheese Posts: 10,309 Forum Tart 2010
    Sheepsteeth you are bang on - seriously though I have bikes/frames/everything else going on in my head and although it PAINS me to say it - am sick of it all... :lol:

    I will get this lot done by the professionals, but after that I am going to read my Park tools big blue book and purchase some more 'specialist' tools and start doing my own workshop stuff...

    Meant to ask you - I am seriously considering getting some X0 grip shits for the Attack Trail as I like the idea of an empty bar rather than cluttered which it is with my poploc.

    How are they going/functioning and what did you do about your grips?

    Cheers dude! :wink:

    ahh, the grip shifts. i am glad to report that they are absolutely awesome.

    they are quite comfy and i havent had any trouble with slipping in the cold or wet. the action is quite light and it is very intuitive. i havent had any phantom shifts even when hauling hard on the bars.

    the grips are my only problem, i need to find if there are any specific ones which match the shifters as i have fitted a cheapo set which i have cut down and they look a bit pump.

    for 40 quid they are awesome, were a doddle to fit and look ace. plus, i quite like the fact that its a bit different. the main reason to have them was to tidy up the bars so i could get access to the orange button without moving my hands off the grips and there wasnt any way to do it with triggers.

    highly recommend them.

    ps, its ace to be able to dump loads of gears at the same time if you are about to stall on a steep incline
  • The Big CheeseThe Big Cheese Posts: 10,309 Forum Tart 2010
