    On the tail end of man flu but going to take it easy as I want to race tomorrow, so probably get the chainsaw out :)

    Later is some local village event - worried!

    Slobbing out here - wet outside, bambina snoring, hound snoring, bambino chilled.

    Giro at 12, bambinos mate comes round this afternoon, TDV away so maybe some tinkering on the RGV. May make a number plate holding thing bracket and under engine exhaust mounting brackets. i may even post a pic if anyone cares.

    Weights sesh as well methinks.

    Morning folks,
    I like Barcelona, have fun. Wifeout situation here so having a cup of tea and contemplating what to do. Might strip the green bike and rebuild it with shiny new bits. Should paint the bottom bracket area as paint has bubbled and flaked off leaving corroded ali. I thought carbon bikes fell apart in the rain.

    Morning, Parkrun dispatched following cute tight butts. Dragged young Oxo along just to get him off finger exercising electronics. Pedalfest later, hopefully it wont be a total waste of time.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Hope you lobbed something at that gull él hoppo. New bars arrived this morning so just picked up some tasty Italian carbon. Bellissimo etc.

    Day of not much as lurgy is fully developed currently sat in bike shop slurping a coffee with Johnny cash playing surrounded by lots of expensive things.

    May get pizza later, hawian to please SG with its pineapple goodness.

    Wouldn't mind a return to Barcelona sometime soon. Just hope for Hoppys sake that seagull didn't censored in the pool.

    Good lie in, done a few errands and off shortly to a charity fundraiser type thing which will have some good food stalls and a good booze raffle where you're pretty much guaranteed to win something. I might even win my own donation back. Just hope the rain stays off.

    Shouldn't you be riding away from Nottingham LD?

    Gloomy grey. On the plus side, I built the girls a swing using a ready made tree.
    Now off to sparky mate to discuss some work (5%) and chin wag about not a lot (95%).

    Laters.

    Hmm, bike down to a bare frame. Lots of paint flaking off it’s lower regions. Decision time, mismatched paint that’s trying to be close, corrosion resistant and ugly or ignore and buy a new frame?
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    powder coat it AND buy a new frame

    We've been to Cal Pep in El Born for lunch, and going to Bodega 1900 for dinner, which is in Montjuïc. We'll walk back to soak up a bit of atmosphere, maybe have a nightcap.

    Wandering down to the port tomorrow I think, we have most of the day - evening flight, but the weather looks a bit iffy.

    Sounds good Hoppy, I like Montjuïc, has to be an orange one though. One of the MFs should get that reference.
    Bought some rattle can paint, cobble the bike together today and tomorrow and then investigate new frame.
