Well the week is nearly over if you ignore the next 4 working days.

Went for an early run with the dogs on the beach, its damn gorgeous out there today and I take back every bitter word I have said about where I live.

Downside I now have to go back to Specialized. Seat post is far too short to accommodate my height like told and the BB that is already installed has scratches on it.


Seat post probably needs to be 400mm but this isn't the 350mm expected

The scratches I wasn't bothered about until they ruined my sleep

    No wonder your coffee costs you so much, that's a work of art not a hot beverage :wink:

    Early mornings and late evenings are the best time of the day at the moment, had a pleasant ride along the local canal last night on the BFe 8)

    No boss today so a nice chilled out day on the cards for me today :D

    Might take a stroll round the lake at lunch time 8)

    Team, I am regretting it being an iPhone, need better camera. Other half wouldn't lend me her fancy DSLR just to take these photos, like seriously why not, it is important information.

    He slowed down, got too warm so he went for a siesta. Can't wait to copy your picture thread as I build my bike, will be a Bottom Bracket topic though.

    Side note, new frame has been ordered to replace this one, with a proper seat post size.

    FTFY :wink:

    Just escaped from the office after putting the boss right on a few points after getting a stroppy email. The charity bike thread in CS has gone a bit quiet, wonder if someone is reconsidering their offer to pay postage? :P

    I can handle being called a hippy but I draw the line at being called French, I'd rather be called Scottish FFS :lol:
