getting pretty darn excited about this :D as it's just round the corner

bike getting built this week, concerned that 42 x 28 might not be enough gearing especially on the strade b hills?? any thoughts, suggestions, experience out there

100miler shake down next weekend

I'm sure I saw an erocia 2012 thread somewhere ?? can't find it now :?:

I did it on 41x26... The climb to monte sante Marie after the Asciano food stop is the steepest.
It is a damn tough day on the bike, but also the best you will ever experience, enjoy!

James, Mel and I are booked in at Siena Camping from Friday to Sunday night inclusive so if you end up there it'll be really simple to meet up.


hopefully we'll meet up at the Sienna Camping, we're shouldn't arrive until lunch time on Saturday, so reckon it'll be straight to Gaiole to register and wander about.

so if our paths don't collide on the Saturday, watch out on Sunday for 2 breathless scotsmen and 1 lanky belgium wearing our new team colours
