I've already made a few blingy additions to make it more "mine" Smile
All in anodised red aluminium by MOWA.


Seat post clamp...




A bit dirty after today's ride, but that's what I think y'all like to see on MTBE, LOL.




Chain ring bolts






Titanium skewers. Exquisitely engineered spherical cam instead of the typical cylindrical cam. I wouldn't put these on a MTB, though, since they are not exactly "oversized", but they go well on a roadie.






And finally the mandatory blingy valve caps. Valve caps GOTTA BE blingy so that you can find them after dropping them in gravel or grass!

Hello matey.

Not bad today. 29 miles 16.3mph av. Being in Lincoln town centre was slow going in busy traffic and loads of traffic lights, so I dismounted and walked a bit and also walked over a railway pedestrian bridge. That probably brought my av speed down a bit, but I did have to post a letter, so being in town was unavoidable.

Finally starting to recover after my OTB on 5 Dec when I got blown off the road in those strong winds. Thumb starting to handle being back on the hoods for extended periods without too much pain and protest and managing to hold my head up for longer periods when in the drops without shooting pains across my shoulder and down my back, so positive progress.


3 PRs today and many more 2nd best segments Smile
