What Sucks:
    Still not sorted out the freehub so no cycling this weekend for Jess :cry:

What Rocks:
    Gorgeous sunshine at the moment. Got the tent up in the garden as my enlarged workshop to make work easier. Half Price Hob-nobs, currently being dipped in my tea. The fantastic thread drift on the "What did you have for tea?" thread.

A positive week this week! :D
Proved by testing to be faster than a badger.
The world's ultimate marmite bike


  • What sucks: got a shed load of homework to do.

    what rocks:
    decent weather allowing me to get on my bike again after a fair few months.
    if you're not crashing, you're not trying.

    Rocks: Payday! So i shall be purchasing some new gear cables, new outer chainring and anodized red bolts 8), some new riding trousers and a new workstand!

    Sucks: Probably not being able to use any of the new stuff when it comes due to terrible weather.. Roll on spring.

    Rocks - Sunny, just had a decent surf in head and a half high waves.

    What sucks - knackered from the surf and masses of exercise (10m cycle, 4m walk, 1 hrs weights, 1/2 hour swim) yesterday and need a snooze. And it's still cold.
    Two Stumpjumpers, a Rockhopper Disk and an old British Eagle.

    New Marin Frame swap is underway (should be ready next Tuesday/Wednesday) - having it done at very busy LBS - went in today for him to measure it all up and to talk tech

    Looks like my Mythic Build will also be finished very shortly

    Got a quote for a set of Mavic Open Pro rims on XTR M975 for the marin (Spare road set) .... good price :)


    Found out my fitness had declined massively (due to me not getting out to much on the bike/gym)

    Have three great bikes but I have turned into a fat git/unfit
  • Rocks:

    Just been offered a job for when I graduate.
    The job will 99% involve me moving to Austria for a year, meaning riding in summer and boarding in winter.


    Still have to get through my final year at uni.
    Went riding on Wednesday, was shattered before I even made it to the woods.
    It's Friday night and I'm staying in.
    "The problem was, I was still using my eyes even though I had them shut"

    Demoted to commuting duty

    Orange Crush!
  • Rocks:
    Have managed to get out on my new bike twice this week.
    Running/orienteering events for the next 3 days.
    Being chatted up via email!!

    Insurance has written car off after minor bump
    Weather awful - don't think there can be anymore rain in the sky left!

    Being chatted up via email!!t!

    Lucky you :wink:

    Who said bikers don't get hit on :wink:
  • Being chatted up at any time is flattering - & to be encouraged!!! :D

    From other threads (ie. walkers) sounds like bikers are just at risk of being hit!! :shock:
