Well im well and truly hooked on road biking now so much so that ive sold my beloved Banshee spitfire as I could not justify having that much cash tied up in a bike I wasnt using at all when we need stuff for our new house 🏡....


I did manage to spirit away a nice chunk of cash to spend on my road bike though before it all dissappeared on house improvements, so I brought myself a second set of good weather wheels.

I got a set of mavic ksysium elite s for a good price from merlin in a red flavour and I think they look very nice giving a bike a little colour. The important thing though is there light,stiff and feel really quick. Ive kept the supplied mavic yskium pro 25mm tyres on for the moment but I do have some 23mm schwalbe ones in case I dont get on with the supplied rubber. Ive also swapped out the pedals for carbon 105 spds.

The bike now wieghs 7.6kg so im well happy with that.
