Today I got a Strava itch I had to scratch. I'd ridden the segment on the Scandal and felt quite good and really wanted to try the Salsa on the same bit. So even when it started raining it never put me off and I headed out and pushed up the hill, annoyingly my back tyre was very very soft and as I'd only planned a quick sortie I'd no pump with me either. The boggy bits were boggier and the tyre squirmed like mad but I still managed to record a faster time :D Cannae wait to run it in the dry and with a bit of pressure in the rear!


so that done do you think you can find that 11 seconds?- very good time but as this is retro bike you should do it on the ritchey with the hite rite option :twisted:

That's brutal and the white face tells the whole story, so glad you are all right mate- sure kaiser has a picture of me after my arm break which I suspect he use to wacks off, when the internet is broken. :lol:

Smart win :D
Just goes to show even a frame like that can go for silly money if the seller is unable to post. Their own fault really :?

He's sold it twice :? whats that about ? hopefully not a not enough money and the previous winner backed out.

he will be selling it 3 times if he doesn't answer my emails or ebay messages asking for his address! :evil: :evil: :evil:
