I did manage a ride but it was local - glorious weather, as you say. Plus I was fuelled up on bread pudding and caffeine from earlier in the day when we'd had to get up at crack of dawn for the dancing competition (she got a gold medal! Here's her video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJLd5pc2WHo)

I can recommend it as fuel! :lol: I was flying!

well i now own a kona again :P

went to the pines with the mrs , didnt take a bike with me as i was getting this one on the way . ended up going around the green route brakeless :lol: hadnt been around the green route before so i had to throw down some speedway stylee around a couple corners

at one point while waiting for the other half to catch up i wondered what the lap record for the green would be :lol: then i thought it would be interesting to set a record brakeless . then i saw 2 guys out for a ride , if i was on my lonesome i wouldave given chase :P


What time were you there? I did get there tonight but by the time I'd mobilised the kids it was 6.30pm

Do you like the bike?

Ok, did the full Kitchener tonight, rigid single speed in 58 minutes timed on a stop watch.

That is my final time as I am now retiring from timing myself and making my life a misery :wink: I certainly wasn't flying though...

isnt that what theyre called :? if it isnt then it should be

ive got a nice set of Vs i was going to put on anyway , ive just got to harvest a pair of levers from a bmx and the blue trailstar . infact i can see me stealing a lot of parts from the blue trailstar . i considered cantis but i got this to race and i cant be dealing with the hassle of cantis and the extra bits of cable plus im going to save up for a eno hub and as velo pointed out at ssuk09 when you tension the chain the pads need resetting

i was there about 7.30 , just a pootle along the green . there is a nice downhill swoopy bit . leads to a sharp right hander so had to scrub off a lot of speed :lol:
