Trek Silque

My new bike :)
In the daylight the colour is amazing, way more green than it looks here.
Can't wait to get out on it.

Re: Female riders are you on female bikes?

I've just bought myself a Trek Silque after a year of being uncomfortable on my current bike. Had a fantastic experience at Velocity Bikes in Cosham, Portsmouth if anyone down south is looking for advice. Now I just have to wait for it all to be built for me and shipped from America. :)

Re: Nod,wave or hello?

I nod or say hello to everyone. Had a bit of a chat today with an old lady wearing a floppy straw hat, weaving around in the middle of the road on a clapped out bike that looked about 100 years old, complete with basket!

Re: Stupid Wind

I was suprisingly thankful for the wind today. Went out way overdressed and was roasting within 10 minutes but too stubborn to turn home and shed some layers. The wind did help cool me down at times. I don't think I've actually done my regular ride without wind though.

Re: Water - How much?

For under 2 hours I take maybe 500mls but rarely have a drink. Over 2 hours 750mls. Longer then I'll take more or find places to fill up on the way so I don't have to carry so much.

Re: Stupid Wind

I don't think I will ever see the wind as "friend". The other week I was being blown all over the road and it was terrifying. Head or tail I can deal with but fluctuating cross winds are not cool!

Re: Bryton computers

So tempted to get one of these. I've been thinking about the Garmins for a while now but the price really puts me off.

Re: Help I need smaller gears - what can I do? A GUIDE

This thread is really helpful, especially for a newbie who doesn't know too much about this sort of thing!

Re: Can a fatty make it 65 miles with 12 weeks training....

That's impressive work so far!
I've got a similar kind of schedule to you going on. I only started cycling 2 weeks ago and have another 7 until a 54 mile ride. So far I'm up to 22miles. No idea if I've lost weight (i need to) but it doesn't seem like it so far.
Good luck!

Re: How old are the newbies to road cycling?

Just turned 27.
Had a super cheap mountain bike at uni but not really sat on one since then. Had a bit of an impulse purchase and just bought myself a Specialized Allez Sport. Just about getting used to clipless pedals and trying not to die around the congested roads of southampton!
