Took the dave yates for a 100+ mile shake down through east, lovely route from leith down coast, onto the borders and back. Bike behaved perfectly, rider was awful :?

Took the knock after 75m, managed to keep it under control, with gels and bars only for the body to crash 3 mile from leith, where a petrol station got a sales surge on chocolate and sugary drinks :lol:

Crackin day on the road bike, did 75/80 miles (nudged the speedo sensor on the wheel when I stopped for a piss). My arse isn't speaking to me again I think I'll try a Brooks narrow before I give up on Brooks all together :? My thighs were screamin towards the end (lactate again) my arse and thighs recovered quickly after I got home, took Alf out for his walk as soon as I got in and even managed to negotiate the stairs without hanging onto the banister :lol:


UPDATE : As far as I can work it out, cycling time approx 4.5 hours, av 17 mph. Bare in mind maths was never my strong point :?


Jeezo....

You and Gmack are a couple of beasts. I thought I was doing well with my 40 miler on Tuesday.
17mph is a good average over 80 miles.

I'll need to think twice about this road ride. I'll be dropped right away if you two take it on...

One of my favourite GT's 8) 8) Bitter sweet though, it was someone on here that stiffed me on a deal for the same frame and forks.
