    Early to bed and early to rise but think of the fun you miss.

    Me i'm going to sunny Glasgow me. It's warmer there than here so i'm going winter to spring and then back to winter again.
    Keep an eye out for MF (up). 'Pop these with a few glasses of Chianti' is the equivalent Asteroids Hyperspace button. It was the space bar on the Commodore 64.

    Laters.

    Morning. Cool but not cold this morning and dry, met brother out of work for ride and to push his fitness a bit. He crashed after ten miles and a 12hr night shift, he enjoyed it I think. Taking youngest to local trail centre for some fun later. Pinno your showing your age again, Commodore 64.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Nice walk with the hound and now relaxing watching the kids kill zombies whilst I wait for the current wife to wake up.

    As always, right before an event I follow the training plan and it’s always too ferkin late! Nevertheless split run with 4 miles just with dog and then 4 with the wife.

    Then off to Padstow For lunch

    Watch out for weird hats again hoppy.

    Warmer today, quite damp but it did tip down with rain so would make sense. Mainly messing with SQL software today for reasons unknown. downloading a plugin thats bigger than the actual application so thats fun!

    Coffee and a wander while it does it, nose on Prenda's for caps an stuffs while I do.

    Working at home again for round two of the window and door replacement project, followed by Dads taxi to the O2 as Stropteen is off to a Sean Mendes (WTF is he?) concert. Not planning on hanging around there for 5 hours so will come home in between. In the meantime, a spot of work...

    It's all happening today with the kids, not so little oxocube tried jumping a small hump at the trail centre and failed miserably. Both knees and the palms of his hands skinned as he CBA, to put his gloves back on. Worst thing was it was in front of a couple of his school mates. :lol:

    hmmmm - l/h shifter has locating pin issue - not sure how he managed to do that.

    need a 3rd hand and as all the MFs are watching the cycling on the telly I'm going to have to wait for TDV to come home so i can use the pretence of her holding the shifter in place while i look down her top. i mean adjust the locating pin.

    no, not that "locating pin" you filthy minded bunch.

    Two site visits, a sweaty chicken salad, 29 messages from the "whats happening at weekend?" whatsapp group and I now realize I need a new BBQ!

    I really need to do some decorating tonight but I also really need to fettle a Bianchi... Either way I might buy some beer!

    so, S3 fettling done today:

    handlebars tilted down by a mm or two
    race shoes sorted with new insoles
    80 deep rim fitted on the front - 90 deep rim on the rear
    140psi in both to annoy clubbies
    new aero helmet worn for first time

    it now rocks. still reckon ultegra 8000 is the wrong groupset for it but its really lovely (the bike, not the groupset).

    just need to trim off spacer stack, get some pictures & post review.

    Step: bar and stem combo work lovely - look really cool, fit together lovely, really nice & stiff) but finish on the bars is tat ""superzero" is peeling off under the stem already and its only been moved (v. gently) once. I might get some acetone on it and make it read " Superhero".

    Good to know matt, I cant remember did you use the guitar pic like top cap for the stem?

    Started slapping some better parts on the commuter as its soon to be prompted temporarily. Its a bit of a dogs dinner mix of parts but it'll do, quick spin seems OK didn't fall apart so I'll take that as a good sign.

    negatron to the cap - looked at yours, scratched my arris then found a completely flat fsa one to replace the domed cervelo one that comes with the bike and looks gash.

    you'll see what i mean when i post piccies.

    currently so broke after spending the remainder of my money on the new helmet that can't get anything new for ages.

    Evening folks,
    Busy day had added meetings and late pub lunch with customer/supplier/competitor. Being Wednesday I followed this up with a trip to a pub.

    Ah yes I think I remember you saying about having a top stack? I've ended up 100% flush fit
    Wheels sound very interesting by the way, shall await images! Reminds me I still need to do some proper ones of mine.

    Means you can clamp without cracking the top of the carbon as the upper bolts compression is spread over the alloy top and carbon.

    I'll get a couple of photos tonight for you.
