Re: Dirtworks

Yesterday's event went nowhere in explaining the biggest mystery in my cycling life. How is it that I can't beat my single speed fully rigid time from 2008. Last year plush duelie => longer... This year better single speed with front shocks => longer... How I finished in 2008 is baffling enough but ...

Re: Accidents

Hi Everyone,

I managed to get an arm-warmer over my broken wrist.


This was an old injury I'm referring to in about 2002 & is all healed up. My fall in Saturday has left me with only sore ribs. They are however mighty sore I can tell you. Bruise is starting to come out.

Cheers,

Lindsay

Gi I think the Tweed rides are about trying to capture the old fashions of cycling past. Who ever said "come in sluggo's" would be leading you astray I would think. Sounds like a fun event, I might tweed up myself some day.

I would advise against getting it painted. Here's my 00.02c worth.

The coating plus final stage heat treatme...

Having done LDT (long distance touring) :roll: with both flat & drops my preference is for drops. Reasons being -

In a super strong headwind you can hunker down on them to get some aero. You've got more hand positions. When you lay the bike on it's side the drops give a bit of protection.
