    Morning. Home recovering from yesterday's stint working at 55 degrees plus at work. Don't you just love hot jobs. Dry at the moment but wet stuff expected. Just going to chill today.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

  • Morning. Rain here, at least garden will be pleased. Surf on the cards today then.
  • haydenmhaydenm Posts: 2,934
    Morning, rain here also. Supposed to dry up later for bikes. I've contaminated the rear pads though so I'll probably be going a bit faster than usual...

    Fitted a few more parts to the new frame, but still waiting for stuff.

    Just a standard 53/39, although new chainring on the way, and 11-28 cassette I think. I was *sure* I had a DA 11-23 cassette in the drawer somewhere but can’t find it, would look better with that on it.

    Those doors are in desperate need of some re-finishing... on the jobs list for, oooooh, whenever. Stained glass yachts motif, dunno why.

    Thank you, will look tidy all finished. Thinking I should remove some stickers from the wheels. I can (just) live with the “Roval” bit but the “Fusee” one looks [email protected] However if I take that off they’ll look unbalanced. Both off or leave on?

    Also *slightly* miffed that all the online reports were that this frame was very tight for tyre clearances, so I ordered some 23mm ones. Turns out there’s loads of room, could fit 25’s easy, and maybe even a 28 on the back.

    Well done HD, one less worry. WS, I'm assuming it's flat around you, as much as I'd like a 53 with a 28 max on the back my lardy censored would struggle. I'll stick with my compact on my best bike and triple on my touring come commute bike.

    Flat-ish, just rolling lumpy bits mainly. I’ve not ridden a roadie in a couple of years now, so will be “interesting” to see how I go.

    What's that MF?

    Morning all, rode in, spent half the morning trying to stop the French tax gestapo trying to rob us blind and the other intrigued at why idiot sales people don't appear to know the meaning of 'no'. Having some lunch then onwards to more fun and games.

    Afternoon, quite day sacked off work still not 100% rolled down to the LBS on the MTB with the rear deep section from the Ti bike, hubs goosed no idea why. Coffee home, nap now not sure what I'm going to do.
  • haydenmhaydenm Posts: 2,934
    Bike shop people still haven't posted my new bike despite ordering it a week ago. I am sad.
  • Lovely wave this morning and plan on another surf later. And sun has turned up. Result.

    Got it - the MFs want to be multiple organ donors.

    you forget - there are loads of MFs so all body parts are interchageable and we are like medical heroes like so we can perform all changing stuff ourselves
