I'm being very active, sipping coffee and contemplating taking Muttley for a walk. No doubt T47 will be along shortly to top this little tale of sloth.

    Took mini oxo to junior parkrun and ended up pacing him, then making bacon butties for him all after a 12hr shift. Upside is I'm off for 9 days.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Was busy.

    Busy weekend in fact. House chores yesterday morning, then a trip up the coast to hand over bike to nephew. So, I've given one away.... means I better start looking for a replacement.

    Today was general stuff in the morning, then an afternoon on the roof of house and garage cleaning up all the leaves and branches that fall on them from *other people's* trees. :evil:

    We're considering a move sometime soon, and there are two primary criteria. Neighbours need to be out of earshot and eyesight, and there are to be zero trees anywhere overhanging the house.

    Brief walk this evening dodging some light showers.

    Someone recommend a comfy saddle 145/150mm width with cut out please.

    Selle Italia max flo - not happy with it. Specialized toupe?

    Do you want race/light or comfort first?

    Have you tried any of the Selle SMP models? They do some wider ones, Lite 209, Pro, Avant are all in the range you're after.

    I switched to one of their skinnier ones a while ago, sceptical it would be any good, but find it surprisingly comfortable, especially since I bought one that has essentially zero padding (Composit model).

    Fascinating sport. The technique of the Brazilian team deserves close scrutiny :)

    Personally, I think it's very sexist and objectifying that the women have to play in bikini's. I really think they should put some integrity into the sport and let them wear hot pants instead.

    Just hot pants? I think a censored tube would also be needed to preserve an appropriate degree of modesty and stop it being so ridiculously popular with male spectators.

    In the Crucatcher that'd be the wife. In Wales it would be a sheep :)

    My day has involved slabs and a pressure washer. :(

    Needless to say, I've had better Sundays.

    Don't worry mate - you can catch the highlights of the beach volleyball on the iplayer.

    That could be another euphemism for the wife.

    Did any of the highlights involve bikini elastic failures?

    All packed and off to Crete for two weeks.

    Behave yourselves while I've gone. No parties etc.

    Laters.


    The older I get, the better I was.

    Have fun with the Cretins. It'll be just like being on this forum.

    Yeah that's them. Odd looking, but you get used to it. Then again, IIRC from a very long ago thread, you were using a Max Flite thing, and they're not pretty.

    You have a good memory.

    Why is it that when I was young a Turbo saddle was the very thing even though my balls had dropped and now I can't find a comfy saddle for chuff? I'll be sitting on a car tyre inner tube at this rate.
