    ^ Blame no win no fee ambulance chasing legals and a consequent corporate CYA culture.

    Promising to be another luvverly sunny day, makes working outdoors a pleasure. Reached 19c yesterday, awavey needs to move away from the coast.

    Morning. Coffee, ride and dog walking planned for today and chasing new car delivery. Looks like someone's been busy again, could do with a new passport.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Morning, stunning day out, might get out of work early enough to enjoy an mtb blast in the semi-daylight but I have my lights just incase. First time out from the new office, will only take 5 minutes to drive to my usual riding spot now. i went up a 10 minute forest road climb on the borrowed 29er last night only 10 seconds slower than my pb on the gravel bike, still can't get over how well this thing pedals...

    There are so many levels to that SG.

    Is it vicarious, demonic, sadistic, mutually anticipated...

    Probably because it is a half decent bike HM. Spend some of that pay rise.

    Sunny here, even though it's near the coast. Frosty last night.
    Might summon up some energy/over come pain and paint those refurbed Porker front calipers.

    Laters.

    Step. Red or Yellow to stand out, or black for stealth look.

    It's a bike I could race Enduro on, it's no XC machine. It's also somehow faster than my hardtail! I think my payrise could stretch a bit further than a second hand Snapiere :wink:

    True, I cant remember what porkie Pinno has (thinking 944 S2?) I've got an old R-Line from before they changed all the logos to red so need probably a have to do mine blue, if I ever get round to it.

  • They did have a reputation a while back.

    Sunny up north, time to plant something fragile in the garden. A sure fire way of bringing this unseasonable warmth to a halt with a sharp frost.

    A friend of mine had their downhill bike when they first went to carbon rear ends, it shattered into a million pieces. It was quite incredible to see

    Back at work innit. Sun is still a-shining in a most un-Februaryish manner. Heading out to find grub shortly. A burrito the size of baby's thigh I think. Hot salsa. Yep.

    Afternoon folks,
    Glorious sunny day out there, but I'm stuck in here. Early bail as I'm out for a few drinks later so need to get home and change before heading out. MD's leaving drinks, so all paid for by the company and not far from home. Another new girl started yesterday, very distracting. Not managed any pic's yet unfortunately.
    Back on my own bike thankfully, the Dutch bike really isn't very comfortable at all. Stevo's bikes would be no use whatsoever to HM. He commented how fast it climbed, Stevo's bikes need loading into a Transit before they can go uphill.
    Only just had my second cup of tea, must be busy.

    Well I know some who's daft enough to be going down Kilimanjaro on a bike so one of them could come in handy. The Lapierre never snapped despite getting a fair bit of abuse.

    Busy day again, just refuelling ready for round 2 then out for cider 'n' curry after work as we have a visitor from the sticks who doesn't show up often, so we're sending a welcome party.

    Wear hobnail boots, dungarees and carry pitch forks. That'll make him/her feel at home.

    That got warm. Ended up dehydrated this afternoon, omitted to take with me a ready supply of drinking water. In February. Strange days indeed.

    wasn't there some bloke (I think it was Nick - again) who posted saying that he planned his rides around newsagents so he could buy water?
