    Morning SG and anyone else daft enough to be up now. Just finishing of brekky then up to Manc land for training course all wk. Suspect I might be a bit fatter than normal when I return due to hotel food. OH well. Enjoy your day in frogland SG.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, its my birthday so I'm WFH/waiting for tubeless valves to be delivered so I can have a lovely day covering myself in latex... A Gabba and some sheep wool slippers from the OH, definitely getting old.

    Went out and sailed a colleague's yacht out around a wreck in the Clyde yesterday, most relaxing.

    Happy birthday Hayden

    Lots of politics and Shiite work today, wish I had stayed in bed

    Happy Birthday Hayden. Not sure about being covered in latex though.

    Morning folks,
    Happy birthday HM, enjoy the slippers.
    Bit moist out there today, had to drive the EPO in this morning which resulted in the bike being left in the nice dry garage. I can't say I was sorry. Didn't have time to put the road tyres back on yesterday so will have to do that tonight. Mudguards will be going back on at the same time.
    Bit of grief still going on here, got to make a decision between staying put or moving for a higher basic but with less in the way of bonuses. I will be a little worse off but probably less inclined to murderise people to death. Longer term should have better prospects at least and broader experience should I decide to jump ship. Less money to spend on shiny bike stuff.
    Just had this sent to me from one of the quick guys yesterday. Hopper, what do you reckon?

    Have a good one HM.

    Beautiful, sunny day here, Toots are off school but off out, so i'm going to take advantage and go for a wobble.

    Laters.

    I picked a fine weekend to head to south Wales! Well more accurately, my sister (yes, remember her!?!) picked a fine weekend to come back from Switzerland to visit my parents!
    Wales know how to do rain!
    Today involves doing sod all at "work" again!

    That will probably need a thread to itself CB, it could run and run.

    Happy birthday HM.

    Miserable start to the morning - enough rain that the hound avoided going out to take his first leak of the day until he was busting. Got a free dinner and plonk evening on the cards on the pretence of discussing Brexit. May as well make the most of these things while they last. And will need to pedal in tomorrow to burn off a few calories.

    Afternoon,

    Happy birthday Hayden.

    Weather's OK here, a bit dull and chilly but not raining at least.

    Rode all the way to work this morning, took ages, was feeling ropey before I set off but still did it. Not looking forward to riding home later.

    Project tubeless= Mission accomplished. Currently sitting in the kitchen at 80psi to make sure it's all sealed. Elbows are killing me from the track pump now. Quite tempted to stop 'WFH' and go for a spin as there's not a cloud in the sky, the only issue is, newly tubeless cx bike or probably the last ride this year on the fast road bike? Tough decisions

    Cheers for the happy birthdaysesseses'.

    I haven't sat in a carpark for a while. I used to enjoy it when I smoked. You could wind the window down and blow smoke out.

    Nice bike was ridden. Ave hr of 170 for an hour then I got a flat. The roads up here dreadful at the moment, does anyone know if I can run GP4000s/primes tubeless? If not I'll be on the CdF until they resurface all of the roads (never).
